What Is Anaqua Cares?
Highlighting a Global Impact
This year, Anaqua Cares Hyderabad’s events were dedicated to helping our environment, so the team decided to work with local school children to plant trees.
We connected with the non-profit CHHAYAnke to give back to our planet one tree at a time. This fruitful event culminated in the planting of more than 500 trees at the Vidyaniketan Model High School. Our volunteers worked with the school and its students to plant trees and demonstrate how to take care of them so they can grow and thrive.
We hope that by helping the trees grow, the children will learn more profound lessons of sharing and caring. Together, planting these trees helps encourage an approach to life full of awareness and mindfulness.
CHHAYAnke is a public charitable trust non-profit organization, located in Hyderabad and operating since 2016. Its chief mission is to foster the all-round development and care of children, women, and human beings to foster an environment of humanity and positivity.
Anaqua’s Gurgaon office collaborated with Foodshaala, a non-profit organization that supports food and nutrition security for low-income groups. They set up community kitchens employing local women to provide affordable nourishing meals in the area.
Anaqua volunteers helped Foodshaala conduct an Awareness and Food Distribution Drive at the Naya Savera School, a school for the underprivileged children. This effort helped provide 85 nourishing meals to Naya Savera students, plus educate them about healthy eating through various games and activities.
Money raised by our volunteers will also go toward the cost of meals, transporting food for drop-off locations to the school, and running the awareness activities. We want to thank Raadhika Gupta for the development of her organization and the chance for us to contribute both sponsorships and volunteering.
The London office’s Anaqua Cares efforts focused on a partnership with the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association. This local environmental charity was established in 1984 and still works to provide food, education, and management of green spaces in nearby regions. Its gardens are used as educational resources by local schools as well as places to volunteer for local groups.
Anaqua’s team got their hands dirty by volunteering to work in the local garden, weeding, composting, caring for flowers and food beds, and more. With over 18 volunteers from our London office, we’re pleased with the difference we could make and thank Hammersmith Community Gardens for the opportunity.
And Many More
Anaqua Cares teams were also active in France and Japan, as well as other cities in the U.S. We’d like to extend a big “thank you!” to all of our volunteers for their hard work with local groups, national non-profits, home-building activities, creating messages and cards for those living with a critical illness, and much more.
