WeCare is a Corporate Social Responsibility function at JLT India. At JLT India, we believe very strongly in giving back to our community. The WeCare website is a forum for the present employees of JLT India and our alumni, who would like to continue their association with the JLT India CSR initiatives. This forum, built purely through volunteer efforts, enables employees to participate in social causes supported by JLT India at a local level in Mumbai..
Empower through education
Udaan, a Hindi word for flight is the name of the initiative that gives wings to the dreams and aspirations of a number of children in the local community of Powai. Adoption of a local Municipal School to provide remedial learning to their current students and class dropouts is a novel yet impactful way of bringing change to the lives of children from underprivileged families. Then allowing the employees of JLT to participate in the children’s learning journey is just the icing on the cake! Our journey with Udaan started 6 years ago when the movement to drive education in the local community started from the basement of a building. From providing transport bus service for children to reach school premises, taking students on field trips, participating in their sports day events to teaching lessons on science, geography and social sciences - the WeCare volunteers spend some sanctioned hours every week with the children.
