Toyota Anganwadi Development Centre (TADP)

Map 2020

Anganwadi centres are operating under Women and Child Development Dept., Government of Karnataka. These centres enrol 3–6-year-old children for basic education.

Research found that, the first six years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development, and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and life in general.

Understanding the current Anganwadi teaching methodology TKM initiated the Toyota Anganwadi Development Program [TADP] in 2020 to upgrade the infrastructure and teaching methodology and in 2020- 2021 TKM identified 30 centres and conducted the base line survey to specify the need.

The assessment conducted on 4 areas – child friendly Anganwadi centres; activity based learning; Teacher Capacity Building; Health and Hygiene.

Model School

Map 2017-2021

Providing conducive environment for nurturing young minds through holistic development will shape the society of tomorrow. TKM envisions creating such a self-sustaining society within our engaged communities – a sustainable village, the foundations of which are being laid through our efforts at establishing a Model School.

In our model school, special emphasis is laid on focusing towards nurturing the students’ career aspirations and penchant for learning through continuous initiatives at: improving school infrastructure and amenities, providing learning support including e-learning material, undertaking capacity building of teachers, creating an eco-friendly environment, ensuring health & safety care for all, promoting extra-curricular activities, and other similar interventions.

As a part of this initiative, in 2016-17, Government Lower Primary School at Devalinganapalya, Ramanagara district in Karnataka, was identified to implement the concept of Model school. The project kick started with the reconstruction of the government school building. Later, by creating a favorable ecosystem in collaboration with the local community, we could successfully establish a holistic model of quality education. The academic performance of the students also registered a steep increase over the years, the current average being 86%.

Solid Waste Management

Map 2019-2021

To promote the cause of safeguarding and nurturing our environment further, TKM has been making strides towards promoting waste management. We lent our support to drive forward the initiative of Bidadi Industrial Association (BIA) on the installation of a solid waste management unit. The unit is meant to cater to small scale industries and the villages in the vicinity.

It is a collaborative approach where TKM is a major contributor among Bidadi Industries. We are supporting with infrastructure related requirements for the segregation of waste for smaller industrial units in BIA and the communities around which lack proper access to waste management. The Solid Waste Management Plant will hence prove to be a better alternative towards managing BIA’s waste and lay the foundations of a sustainable future. (To be rewritten)

Encouraged by the positive response to the Green Me program, Toyota Kirloskar Motor upgraded its vision to develop a state-of-the-art experiential learning center which is a repository of environmental know-how in the premises of Toyota Kirloskar Motor in an area of 25 acres. Idea behind developing EcoZone was to create a biodiversity zone where children can observe and learn about the environment beyond classroom, while communities will evidence the environment conservation in person. With EcoZone we are promoting “Harmonious co-existence” of humans and nature through various educational activities. EcoZone has 11 theme parks which cover aspects such as evolution, waste management, underground ecology, water conservation, noise pollution, energy conservation, climate change & future landscape, and many more. The ecozone hosts 6 types of forests and more than 650 floral and 230 species of fauna. A solar plant of 0.5 MW and a rainwater harvesting pond of 26,000 m3 capacity is built to cater to the utilities for the Ecozone. While these parks educate the children and community on the global and local facts related to pollution and degradation of environment, it also exposes them to solutions through technologies, concepts and designs through real-time experiences. With these activities, Toyota Kirloskar Motor aims to develop a future green and sustainable society which will be in harmony with nature.

School Sanitation

Map 2014 – 2018

The importance of water and sanitary facilities for schools is widely acknowledged. Yet in practice, the situation in many schools, especially in rural India, is far from satisfactory. Of about 1 million primary schools in India, roughly 70 percent have safe drinking water and only 50 percent have sanitary facilities. School sanitation is not just construction of toilets, but a package of school-centric interventions to bring about attitudinal and behavioral changes towards critical sanitation and hygiene practices among children and to empower them to lead a healthy life. Children are also very effective change agents. They help to create a healthy, clean and active learning environment in school and then carry the messages back home to motivate their families to improve sanitation and hygiene habits. TKM conducted the situational Analysis of local schools and understood the importance of gender segregated toilets in government school. With the vision of contributing to the national goals, TKM started construction of school toilets in Karnataka, UP and Bihar states in 2014-15 and Public toilets in 2016-17.

Toyota Safety Education Programme (TSEP) & Toyota Hackathon

Map 2007

Toyota’s global vision for traffic safety follows a 3-pillar approach, that is, to integrate people, vehicle and traffic environment. Toyota has been actively engaged in road safety programs since the 1960s, including safe-driving courses for drivers and traffic safety education for children across the globe

We, at Toyota, believe & work with a strong thinking thatthe safety of human lives is our first and foremost duty.Our commitmentis not limited to the production of safe cars alone, but also to ensure the safety of road users. Children are our future. It is easier to learn good habits at an early age than to break bad habits later. Once developed, attitudes can be difficult to change. Thus, Toyota Safety Education Program (TSEP) is an interactive learning program designed to addressing school children from Government and Private schools of Class 5 th to 9th Std

Toyota Hackathon is one of Toyota’s innovations introduced for the first time by any corporate in India for school children. Piloted in 2018 at IIT Delhi. Through this initiative, TKM focuses to drive the inventive minds of the students (class 9th to 12th standard) from across various private and government schools as well as colleges based in Bangalore. The Toyota Hackathon provides a dynamic platform, divided into three engaging phases, where students showcased their creativity, innovation, and prototype development of practical solutions aimed to promote road safety

Toyota Hackathon

Map 2018

Aims to foster and encourage development of practical, implementable digital solutions to promote road safety – encourage students to become ‘Solution Providers’. TKM piloted Toyota Hackathon in 2018 for students across 9th – 12th grades (schools/colleges) at IIT-Delhi. Encourages children to become critical thinkers, further develop solutions for modern-day road safety challenges. This helps to unlock the hidden talents of young minds, empowering them to make significant contributions to the vital cause of road safety. Further, by actively engaging students, it seeks to develop them to become ‘Change Agents’, playing a crucial role in bringing about a positive behavioral change in the community at large. Furthermore, this initiative provides an ideal platform, encouraging the future generation to leverage their knowledge and technical expertise to address high-priority issues effectively.

The first phase of the 3rd edition of Toyota Hackathon 2024, kicked off with students submitting a 200-word concept note about their new ideas on road safety. Out of which, the qualifying students consisting of 25 teams were invited to an onsite, one-day boot camp in Bangalore during Jan 2024, where they honed their best ideas and presentation skills, preparing for the on-ground Hackathon

In the second phase, students further re-submitted a 300-word revised concept note, showcasing the evolution and refinement of their initial proposed ideas.

The culminating phase featured the 2-day onsite, 24 hours Hackathon held in Bangalore, 23 teams participated who were offered wih technical mentorship by experts and industry professional to build prototype basis the ideation submitted during the first phase of the Hackathon. The jury members comprised of representatives and officials from Bangalore Traffic Police; IISc ,R V Institute of Technology and Management ,Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP); Traffic Training & Road Safety Institute, Media amongst others

Final top 3 winners are provided with technical support for 3 months to further improvise their ideas

Team Toyota Activity

Map 2017

To drive our school engagement programme on road safety a bit further, TKM has conceptualized an additional intervention in experiential learning for students as well as school bus drivers. The initiative involves incorporating an experiential learning model through the creation of a Traffic Park in our Model Schools. The traffic park is instrumental in exposing them to different real-life scenarios within the safe limits of their school premises. It further promotes the adoption of safe practices, such that these scenarios can be dealt with safely and promptness, whenever a need arises. The Model schools with Traffic parks act as a knowledge hub for other schools in the neighbourhood as well.

A total of 7 Safety model schools, one each at Delhi, Hisar, Varanasi, Rewari, Kochi, Kolkata & Coimbatore, have been established as a part of this programme, since its inception in 2016, with a reach of around 5050 students. In 2019-20, the TTA centre in Coimbatore got inaugurated and 800 students were reached through the centre.

Driver Safety Programme

Map 2014-2016

As an important component of social contribution activities, Toyota works to address the lack of safe driving habits among adults, specifically airport drivers in Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Delhi. The mission is to impart better road safety practices to airport drivers, while pairing up the training sessions with health camps to ensure other needs of drivers are met amidst their busy work schedules. Along with a 3-day road safety refresher course, Toyota conducts general health and optometry camps for the airport drivers.
