Kodak endeavours to support local community
The foundation of every prosperous society is built on educating our youth. For the vast majority of children in India, who attend government-run primary schools in rural areas, access to basic resources, like school supplies, is a challenge that impacts learning outcomes and the quality of education.
To help combat this problem, Kodak has teamed up with India’s Youth for People and Aroehan, two local NGOs, to deliver 5,000 notebooks to children across schools in Mokhada in rural Maharashtra. Kodak’s support for this important program in 2017 is part of the company’s Print For Good initiative which is focused on promoting literacy around the world. The global program partners with printers and industry stakeholders to target high need areas with book drives, book donations and the printing of school materials and supplies to support literacy efforts on a global basis. For the 2017 Youth for People Notebook Donation program, Kodak worked with its local customer Nemlaxmi Books to print the 5,000 notebooks, using Kodak technology.
