Ford India Celebrates Its Better World Promise With Global Caring Month This September

Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services works with community and global partners to advance driving safety, education and community life. Ford Motor Company Fund has operated for more than 65 years with on-going funding from Ford Motors. Globally, Ford Motor Company announces a new initiative that strengthens its leadership in community service and provides younger employees an innovative opportunity to explore their growing interest in civic engagement and volunteering. 

In India, going further in its commitment to a Better World, volunteers from over 14,000 hard-working, dedicated men and women across Ford operations in India will come together to celebrate ‘Global Month of Caring’ this September. Spreading their volunteer work across 40 projects, the Ford in India employees will contribute in areas of education, environmental sustainability, safety, health and humanitarian support, across Chennai, Sanand, Gurgaon and Coimbatore. Marking the 10th anniversary of Ford Volunteer Corps, the signature Global Week of Caring this year has been expanded from a week in September to the entire month. As part of Global Caring Month, the core focus of volunteers in India will be on strengthening efforts on Education and Sustainability.

In line with its ongoing Happy Schools roadmap on education, the month of September will see Ford volunteers undertake various fun-filled activities - including designing interactive curriculums and creating colourful educational aids - across schools. Reiterating the company’s commitment to sustainability, Ford volunteers and dealerships across India will undertake tree sapling planting in areas close to their operations. This will be supported by various awareness campaigns, highlighting the importance of preserving the environment, personal hygiene road safety. Helping local communities, the month will also witness medical camps for women and children and menstrual awareness campaigns for adolescent girls being organised. 

The program is jointly funded by the company and Bill Ford. Ford and Executive Chairman Bill Ford have also launched the Bill Ford Better World Challenge, a global grant program that will award up to $500,000 to community service projects identified by company employees.
