To make education accessible to every child, JK Cement constructs 250 ramps across Rajasthan Government Schools on a single day; creates record.
Named ‘Banaye Har Raah Aasaan’, the initiative ensures that every single child gets the opportunity to access their right to education, thereby fostering an inclusive academic ecosystem in the process. JK Cement’s program commemorates the first death anniversary of JK Cement’s Late CMD, Shri Yadupati Singhania who passed away on 13th August 2020.
JK Cement’s commitment towards inclusive education aligns with the Government’s National Education Policy which targets at ensuring equal and inclusive education to all students. The said policy states that all higher education institutions in the country should ensure that all educational buildings and facilities should be wheelchair-accessible and disabled-friendly. By constructing 250 ramps in just one single day, across various government schools, JK Cement is aiding the government’s vision to make infrastructure more accessible to differently-abled students, so that not a single child is left out.
According to a recent UN report, 75 percent of children with disabilities in India do not attend any educational institutes in their lifetime. To address these concerns, the Government has implemented several policies over the last two decades, concerning the educational reforms for the differently-abled and make education more accessible and inclusive to all students.
