Through this campaign which intends to make women get rid of using charcoal and firewood for cooking the company has reached out to over 5,000 women.

“Therefore, when we see an institution like the Tulia Trust comes forward to organise an event for raising funds to support girls we see it as our responsibility to support such an initiative,” he said, arguing that the raised funds are going to bring impact to the lives of the needy girls.
