SINGLE TEACHER SCHOOLS,
STRONG COLLABORATION KCF and KONE India jointly fund twenty Single Teacher Schools run by the Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society in impoverished villages north of Chennai where children either fail to attend regional schools or the schools provide inadequate developmental opportunities for their students. Local residents are trained to run creative educational programs in the early evening, enabling all children in the village to attend.
EXPANDING ACTIVITIES Working in close cooperation, KONE India and KCF are researching ways to improve the health and quality of life of children and their families living in these villages. A pilot project focusing on two villages close to the new KONE factory got underway in 2018.
