THE UNDERPRIVILEGED children of Parikrama Centre for Learning in Jayanagar now have a new library. Motorola India provided funds for the library, which will be a high quality resource centre, providing books and resource material to the slum and street children.

Motorola has also donated a three-seater vehicle that will be used to transport goods and material across the three Parikrama centres in the city. The driver of the vehicle is from the community the children belong to. This, according to the organisation, is at the heart of its philosophy of integrating the community into its programmes.

Mohan Kumar, vice-president and general manager, Motorola India, said, "As a company, we encourage employees to participate in social activities. With Parikrama, we have found the right partner to channel our resources towards community development."
