Health & Hygiene
Embassy aims to improve lifelong resilience to illness and disease with end-to-end healthcare interventions for government school students, ensuring better educational outcomes and a brighter future for all. From preventive initiatives such as awareness, sports programme and nutritional support to comprehensive health screenings and medical interventions, we cover every aspect of the students’ health and hygiene needs.
To deepen our impact, we have partnered with a consortium of corporates and NGOs including Cerner, Cognizant, Swiss Re and Bengaluru North Round Table Trust to enhance the health and hygiene conditions of 133 government schools in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Pune.
Preventative Health & Hygiene Awareness
Government schools benefiting from our holistic health & hygiene programme also receive eight hours of preventative health awareness session throughout the school year. To encourage the inculcation of good hygiene habits, students also receive a health kit at the beginning of the year, which contains a toothbrush, toothpaste, a tongue cleaner, shampoo, bathing and hand-wash soap, antiseptic solution, a comb and a water bottle. Consumables such as toothpaste and toothbrushes are then replaced twice during the school year.
Annual Health Check-ups
Students also receive a comprehensive health screening along with an electronic health record for each child and a printed health report. Counselling for parents is also provided.
If health issues are identified among students during their annual check-up, they have the option of receiving free treatment at a partner hospital or mobile clinic.
As good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle, maintaining a healthy weight and reducing the risk of chronic diseases, we provide a nutritional snack to students after school thrice a week.
Sport is an integral part of the programme we offer in government schools, with an aim to encourage students to keep a fit and active lifestyle.
Clean Drinking Water & Handwashing Facilities
With the prevalence of water-borne diseases, we ensure that our government schools have access to clean drinking water and handwashing facilities.
School Maintenance, Repairs & Renovations
In addition to ensuring that the government schools we have adopted benefit from infrastructure upgradation, we also provide daily school and toilet maintenance to ensure that students receive an environment conducive to learning.
We drive positive change by providing infrastructure-based solutions with new frontline services for environmental sustainability and community healthcare and we deliver grassroot results to global problems in the communities we are a part of.
Embassy is a proud partner of TAICT’s (The Anonymous Indian Charitable Trust) EcoGram Waste Management Project, which aims to catalyse communities to develop and implement strategic infrastructure for sustainable environmental management.
In addition to our Bengaluru Rural waste management initiatives, we also work to contribute to communities around our office parks through public space enhancement, clean-up drives that actively involve our corporate communities, improving access to healthcare solutions and provision of improved basic amenities for sustained community transformation.
Embassy sponsors free dialysis at the Sarvagna Healthcare Institute where over 10,000 patients have received free dialysis till date. In addition to the dialysis centre, Embassy also sponsors Sarvagna’s Medicare Institute, which provides primary healthcare to underprivileged patients. Sarvagna works actively in the community through 5 trained Community healthcare Assistants, who make regular home visits to raise awareness about preventative healthcare, healthcare insurance schemes targeted towards the poor, and other social welfare schemes.
Initiated in 2016, EcoGram is a Sustainable CSR project of Embassy Group in partnership with The Anonymous Indian Charitable Trust (TAICT) that jointly aims to create an ecologically sound replicable model Gram Panchayat to propagate sustainable waste, water, and soil management. With current operations spread across 8 villages in the Bettahalasuru Panchayat, Embassy has invested nearly Rs. 1.9 Cr. over the last 4 years towards de-centralized solid waste management, where waste is sorted into 3 categories at source using the 2bin1bag methodology. The collected organic waste is then converted into compost, and the recyclable waste is sorted within the Gram Panchayat.
Since the inception of the programme, over 204 tons of dry waste and 215 tons of wet waste has been collected, with a 92% level of segregation and disposal. To complement the solid waste management and infrastructural solutions provided in the Panchayat, a strong emphasis is also placed on community engagement and awareness initiatives curated through women and children in the communities. Embassy is now expanding its solutions to the current waste management and water crisis facing Bengaluru.
The creation and completion of an Integrated Solid Waste Processing Centre, with a greater capacity for gathering and sorting waste, will enable the expansion of waste collection from the present 8 villages to 18 villages and neighbouring panchayats. The infrastructure for the centre will be developed by a village panchayat in partnership with Embassy, who will bear the entire operating costs. Included in the costs are utilities, equipment for waste segregation, staff salary, vehicles, and the management fee for the NGO partner, at a total budget of Rs. 1 Cr. annually.

Embassy and Cerner have created a consortium of corporates and NGOs to enhance the health and hygiene conditions of 133 government schools in Bengaluru, Pune, and Noida.
