HCL Technologies wins the National CSR Award for its urban poverty

HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, has won the prestigious National CSR Award 2020 instituted by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India.  

The award recognizes the path-breaking work by the HCL Foundation, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of HCL Technologies, toward equitable and sustainable development of communities living below the poverty line in urban slums.

Slum area development has been identified as a national priority by the Government of India. HCL Foundation’s flagship program, HCL Uday, provides comprehensive support to underprivileged people, including migrant workers and working children living in urban slums and on the streets. It provides access to education for children, skill development for gainful employment, primary healthcare and sanitation services, clean water sources, and more to enable equitable development of
these communities. So far, the program has impacted over 560,000 recipients across 11 Indian cities.

“HCL Technologies is deeply committed to serving local communities and contributing to inclusive growth and social development across the geographies we operate in. With an investment of over INR Nine hundred crores to date, the HCL Foundation has created one of the largest CSR footprints in India and impacted over 3.7 million people with multiple interventions across urban and rural areas. We thank
the Government of India for this recognition. It is a big source of encouragement for us to double down on our efforts to continue transforming communities and build an equitable and sustainable planet.” said C Vijayakumar, CEO & Managing Director, HCL Technologies.
