Community engagement in India

Oerlikon India is committed to enhancing the quality of life in neighborhood communities through sanitation, health care and education projects, and to supporting the government and NGO initiatives in the mitigation of damage in the event of natural disasters and calamities. We place our focus on projects that support female and physically and mentally challenged children, that provide high-quality vocational skills development and education to improve the employability of youth, that champion environment protection and conservation, that promote the use of sustainable sources of energy, and that support the country's heritage in performing arts and sports.

In recent years, we have donated dialysis machines, built a vocational training center for women, provided schools with sanitation facility and clean drinking water, repaired drainage systems and built a hybrid solar power plant. In 2020, we contributed to the care fund launched by the prime minister to support COVID-19 patients.
