Sika supports underpriviledged children in India

Building Foundations of Support

 Sika's CSR activities are more than just initiatives; they are the building blocks of a better society. The Maher Boys Shelter, a haven for 35 orphaned street boys in Navi Mumbai, stands as a testament to collective responsibility towards the welfare and development of society. Situated in the neighborhood of our Mumbai Head Office, the shelter is a beacon of hope for these young lives.

Beyond Books: A Commitment to Education

The journey of our partnership began on Sika Day 2023. Sika employees visited the Maher Shelter, engaging in playful activities and sharing a meal with the kids. As an initial gesture of support, many employees generously donated mattresses and old books to enhance the living conditions and educational resources for the children.

Continuing its commitment to education, Sika organized a book reading session, fostering a love for learning among the boys. This not only enriches their minds but also underscores the belief in the transformative power of education.

Sika Maher Home: A Symbol of Sustained Support 

In a moment of profound significance, Philipp Jost, Regional Manager Asia/Pacific, and Member of Sika Group Management, and Yumi Kan, Area Manager South Asia and Head Target Market  Concrete & Eng. Refurbishment APAC, handed over a cheque to Maher NGO, ensuring the shelter's rent is covered for an entire year. This transformative contribution marks the beginning of a sustained relationship, turning the Maher Shelter into the "Sika Maher Home." 

"Sika Nurtures Hope" is more than a campaign; it's a call to action, an invitation to join hands in creating a positive impact on young lives. Together, with Maher Shelter, Sika is committed to nurturing hope, fostering growth, and building a brighter future for these underprivileged children in India.
