LANXESS brings a smile to the faces of the children of school in Mehtawas

Mumbai, Maharashtra, July 6, 2011 /India PRwire/ -- LANXESS, the global specialty chemicals company having a manufacturing plant in Nagda has provided students of the government managed school Shaskiya Prathamik Vidyalaya located in Mehtwas village with useful items like school uniforms, notebooks, stationery items, school bag, school shoes and socks, tiffin box and water bottle, raincoat among other things in order to facilitate the children's education.

In November 2010, the company had sponsored the school for improvement of its infrastructure and had also offered scholarships for meritorious students of the school.

LANXESS has thus made an effort towards ensuring that the children can attend school without any hindrance and focus on their studies. The children of this school largely belong to the not so financially empowered section of the society.

LANXESS considers education as the core focus area under its social development responsibilities and has previously partnered with NGOs, technical institutions and schools to promote education in every region that it operates in.

Present at the function, for distribution of items to the students organised at the school, were Mr Neelanjan Banerjee, Senior Executive Director of LANXESS India, Mr Bappa Bandyopadhyay, Head of Manufacturing of LANXESS in Nagda along with other employees of LANXESS and dignitaries from the local administration like Shobha Yadav.

On this occasion, Mr. Neelanjan Banerjee, Senior Executive Director of LANXESS India said, "I hope this gift from us encourages students to focus on their studies without many difficulties. We wish the students of this school all the best for their future endeavours."
