Project Kalam: Helping Schools in the Villages of India
Kalam means pen in Hindi. But it is also the name of an unusual school project which Anton Paar India has overseen for the last seven years.
Funds were raised for more than 2,500 students, to renovate schools in the hometowns of Anton Paar employees, and provide them with basic supplies. Children in five schools now have a place they like to be in again, and where they can prepare for their future.
Coinciding with Anton Paar’s 100th anniversary, renovation of a sixth school is about to be completed.
