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%.


Learning Aid

Map 2003

Resource equity is critical to ensure the success of any education system. TKM has been actively promoting equity in availability of educational material to students in various schools of Ramanagara district in Karnataka to ensure that their learning goes on smoothly.

1,14,899 students in 1,656 schools

10,293 students from 137 schools provided with learning aid in FY 20-21.

5,98,586 notebooks distributed.

52,800 notebooks ,1050 bags and 1800 Geometry boxes were distributed in FY 20-21.

In 2017 & 2018, we have developed ready reckoner consisting of all six subjects for Grade 10 government school students of Ramanagara district, to aid their preparation for the board exam. Ready reckoner for Grade 10 has contributed to take Ramanagara district rank from 17th place to 12th in SSLC board examination results. 25,300 books distributed.

Our needs assessment study revealed that teachers from government lower primary schools lack English Communication Skills which is reflecting on the performance of students in English Language. From (2015-2017), TKM has been working to build capacity of teachers on their English communication and teaching skills. It has been observed that capacity building support did not only help improve their English skills, but also increased their commitment towards developing a positive learning environment in schools. 556 teachers trained.

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.
Ecozone comprising of 17 theme parks including 4 types of forests, hosting more than 650 species of flora; has been created.
For the reporting year more than 30,019 students benefitted.

In FY 2020-21, Operation and Maintenance were carried out for necessary handing over to the local municipal body. Population from 6 villages are currently benefiting from the Abbanakuppe lake.

Green Me

Map 2015-2018

With Green Me initiative, TKM started its Journey towards education for Sustainable Development with its unique practice-based learning curriculum at Government schools. Since its initiation in 2015, we partnered with educational department, 30 government higher primary and 5 high schools across Bidadi region in Ramanagara district.

The program aims at promoting environment awareness and conservation activities through both knowledge enhancement and practical implementation. Consequently, the programme has gained momentum and is successful in spreading environment awareness in the local community through ‘children as change makers’ approach.

Environment awareness level increased from 16% to 66%

As a result of Green Me initiative students have come together and developed their own kitchen garden. They have designed a mechanism to channelize waste water to kitchen garden. They have also started planting saplings across their villages. They have established a system to ensure cleanliness in the school premises. Overall a greater awareness and application of environment education was observed.

Government Schools. Since its initiation in 2015, we partnered with education department, 30 government higher primary and 5 high schools across Bidadi region in Ramanagara district.

A Behaviour Change Demonstration (ABCD) Programme

Map 2015-2019

TKM has been actively propagating a solution model which leverages behavioral change into triggering a shift in the mindset of the engaged communities. Our solution model adopts a two-pronged approach - which involves creating appropriate sanitation facilities in schools and communities followed by the introduction of our “A Behavior Change Demonstration (ABCD) programme”. The ABCD programme focuses on inducing behavioral change, in school going children. The aim of this programme is to foster the importance of sanitation and hygiene in young minds. Children in turn act as catalysts to provoke thoughts, initiate discussions and promote awareness within the families, and thereby the community. To strengthen the initiative further and sustain the drive, TKM continually engages with women and girl children through special sessions on hygiene practices. Adding to its success and credibility, ABCD project got acknowledged as a case study by Harvard Business School. It has also been covered by IVEY publication. After a successful run of around 5 years, the ABCD project has been handed over to the local administration. Essential processes were established to make this transition seamless.

Impact Assessment Findings

Prior to the project, only used to take daily bath which has increased considerably to 22.9% post programme.

Community Healthcare

Map 2019

TKM has initiated a school-based health monitoring programme – Toyota Shaale Arogya Program(TSAP), as a part of its interventions towards ensuring a healthy and disease-free childhood. The programme primarily focusses on early detection of malnutrition, anemia, and conducting eye tests. We further emphasize on bringing out behavioural change in the students towards health and hygiene. Further, a need assessment exercise conducted within our communities suggested the need for additional infrastructure. To cater to this requirement, TKM undertook a pilot project and initiated the construction of a Primary Health Center [PHC] at Byramangala and Community Health Centre in Bidadi of Ramnagara district, in accordance to the guidelines prescribed by the Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS).

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.

Ideation phase, where the qualifiers of the first phase are required to submit an idea of a technical project describing the concept and the technical principles leading to the creation of a solution prototype. Onsite development, where selected ideas are translated into a technical project under the mentorship of students from leading technological institutions.

Overall 2600 childrens are covered through Toyota Hackathon, of which 2,000 students were reached in 2019-20.

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
