Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has unveiled HCL Foundation’s biggest corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative called ‘Samuday’ in Uttar Pradesh – a rural development initiative to create model villages, which has touched lives of around six lac people in the state.

Under the Samuday CSR initiative, 49 mini solar grids are being set up across 63 villages by HCL. Also, Samuday has set up over 380 ICT-based classrooms and enrolled 1865 people for adult literacy programme. Samuday has also engaged 5000 farmers under various interventions and constructed 5500 toilets, which are currently under usage. Currently the project is being implemented in three blocks of Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh.

“We, at HCL Foundation, believe that positive social change can be brought by innovative and creative models of development. Our proximity to the place from where we started our journey makes Uttar Pradesh the right fit for the project to begin. We feel that through the Samuday model, we will be able to develop a blueprint that is sustainable, scalable and replicable throughout the world,” said Roshni Nadar Malhotra, Chief Executive Officer, HCL Corporation and Chairperson of the CSR Committee for the HCL Technologies Board.

Speaking on the occasion, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath Ji, said, “I congratulate HCL for launching ‘Samuday’ in Uttar Pradesh. It makes me proud that HCL, which started its journey from Uttar Pradesh and is now grown into a global conglomerate, has chosen Uttar Pradesh for its biggest CSR project. I am confident that the spirit with which the project is being implemented will certainly help the last man on the ground.”
