The HSBC Train Green programme

  The HSBC Train Green programme

Organised by HSBC, the Train Green Programme is a five-year initiative which provides students with an opportunity to participate in environmental outreach projects and workshops relating to energy conservation, water conservation, waste management, tree planting, to reduce carbon footprint.

The HSBC Train Green Programme (TGP) will happen in 10 select schools in the city. Students are encouraged to devise their own environmental projects, thereby creating ‘Change Agents’.

The programme was officially launched at an event at their Group Service Centre (GSC) Hyderabad facility at Hitec City, Madhapur. First launched in 2009 at Visakhapatnamm it was followed in Bengaluru the following year.

“Happiness is not so much in having as sharing.

Dear Parent,

Team Pragathi is glad to announce ‘The Joy Of Giving Fortnight’ from 26/08/15 to 08/09/15 to commemorate the life of Mother Teresa who was born on 26th August, 1910 and died on 5th September,1997. 

During this period children are encouraged to bring old clothes, old toys, old story books (which are in good condition for someone else to use) to hand over to the less fortunate at various orphanages, old-age homes and for the destitute. Remember parents, children worked on a ‘Clutter-Free Home’ Life skills module? All the old clothes, toys etc which were sorted for “Give Away” can be used now for donation. This is NOT compulsory. Only the interested may donate.

Special assembly was conducted on Mother Teresa for the students of VI to X today. Also a brief chronology of notable events in Mother Teresa's life, a series of memorable photos of her life and work through a Photo Essay, excerpts of her interviews and some of her quotes will be presented in the class during this fortnight.

Visits to orphanages, old-age homes and near-by slums are in the pipeline to personally handover the stock to the needy.
Student volunteers along with a committee of teachers has been set-up to collect and sort out the goods. Parents and children are instructed to hand over the stuff according to the below given dates to the respective class teachers who in turn will hand over the same to the In charges concerned.

Time - Slot
Days of collection

"It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters." – Mother Teresa
