In keeping with its mission of “Today, better than yesterday. Tomorrow, better than today”
The PS Group realises that no development is complete without taking care of our unfortunate brothers and sisters who are unemployed, due to lack of skills who can hardly ever get an opportunity to better their plight. Thus, the PS Group has embarked on addressing various social causes. In the event you have any genuine concern for the society which you feel strongly and would like to share or join hands with PS Group, do write to us for the same. There is a great possibility of working together. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With a view to address both the problem of unemployment in the youth of the city-based slums and to ensure that adequate number of trained manpower is made available for the maintenance and upkeep of the housing complexes as well as to ensure adequate availability of domestic help in our housing complexes, PS started an initiative called ‘NAYEE DISHA’. This initiative was launched to empower illiterate slum dwellers through training by expert faculty members to become skilled trained gardeners, cleaners, domestic help, cooks, house keepers, drivers etc. This training is imparted free of cost with daily sustenance allowance and free afternoon meal with employment guarantee.
A joint venture with NGO’s Nayeedisha and Asha Sanchar, ‘Project Sunshine’ imparts training to the underprivileged, mainly orphaned children from juvenile homes, giving them an opportunity to make a respectable living . Many opt for training to become drivers, a supply gap for which exists in our city. This car was donated by The PS Group towards the project to facilitate this cause.
EFFORTS TO BEAUTIFY THE CITY
The PS Group had taken upon itself, albeit in a small way also to help beautify the city’s skyline. By agreeing to re-paint the exterior of any PS Building, even if it is 21 years old, the group bears 50% of the total cost. This was an effort to delight the customers by offering much more than what is promised or expected by them.
INDUSTRIAL TRAINING INSTITUTE
PS is also involved in skill development of physically handicapped children and therefore they have adopted the ITI for physically challenged boys and girls located at S.N. Banerjee Road, Kolkata, under the Public Private scheme set out by Central Government. After adoption of one and a half years back, PS has adopted the ITI to a centre of excellence. Today people involved in vocational training from around the country come to visit this ITI which is supposed to be India’s best ITI vocational training and is role model for people involved in vocational training particularly for physically challenged boys and girls.
WELFARE FOR VISUALLY IMPAIRED
PS is also involved in the Welfare Society of the Blind where they have set up an audio studio where most of the printed books are converted into audio format so that vision impaired children can learn and get educated through audio books. Over 200 books are printed into audio format and a library is being created for audio books both at the Welfare Society of the Blind as well as the ITI for physically challenged boys and girls.
KNOWLEDGE SHARING IN PUBLIC DOMAIN
PS has distributed over 1 Lac copies of books on Real Estate and Better Living which has been uploaded at various Real Estate Forums.
