Setting a positive example for other businesses to follow, IndiaMART.com,
India’s largest online B2Bmarketplace, visited KHUSHII (Kinship for
Humanitarian, Social and Holistic Intervention in India), which is
spearheaded by the legendary cricketer Mr. Kapil Dev, in Vasant Kunj (New
). As a socially responsible corporate, the entire IndiaMART.com team
came together to play a part in the holistic development of the
underprivileged children at Khushii. This furthered their objective to
connect these children with the outside world and integrate them in the
mainstream society. The Chief Guest at the event was Mr. Atul Wassan, Former
Cricketer and Commentator. Ms. Leena Singh, a famous fashion designer, was
also present who boosted the morale of the children with her encouraging
words of wisdom.

Sharing his views on the same, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder and CEO,
IndiaMART.com, said, “At IndiaMART.com, we have a good strength of young
generation working with us. I feel this visit to Khushii is a wonderful way
to sensitize them about the disadvantaged sections of our society. I am sure
this will impart new learnings and sensitivity to them which they will be
able to imbibe and realise in their lives. Through this effort, we want to
share our smiles with the underprivileged children and contribute our bit in
making a positive change in the society.”

A host of activities such as card making competition, jam sessions,
treasure hunt and quiz ensured that the IndiaMART.com family and 800 children
from Khushii spent a day full of interaction. Moreover, these children were
delighted to receive special Diwali gifts, games and books from the company.
Following this visit, an exclusive Diwali Haat will be organised at
IndiaMART.com office premises (Noida) on November 1-2, 2010 from 4-6pm,
wherein various crafts handmade by these children will be on display for
purchase. This is another way through which the company is lending its
support to Khushii.

It is not the first time IndiaMART.com has made special efforts towards
its social responsibility. In recent past, it played a significant role in
its first public initiative to clean up the Yamuna which was initiated by Art
of Living Foundation of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. IndiaMART.com heavily promoted
the Meri Dilli Meri Yamuna drive and offered full support in making it a
successful initiative.

Khushii is a national organisation working for the upliftment of the poor
and destitute communities in both rural and urban areas. It is led by a team
of committed philanthropists. Amongst its various projects, Shikshaantra
(Remedial Education and Adult Education Programme) aims to teach those who
have never attended or dropped out of school due to varied reasons and
unavoidable circumstances.
