Our Commitments 2009 - 2010 Social Responsibility and Community Development RIL has a long and strong tradition of supporting the larger communities that it connects with - from education, health, drinking water, large-scale development of employable skills, to assistance during natural calamities such as earthquakes and cyclones. "I strongly believe that we can, and should do, much more.I also believe that this effort has to bring into play RIL's strengths of strategic planning, meticulous detailing and flawless execution on a large format". With this perspective in mind, Shri Mukesh D. Ambani announced the launch of 'The Reliance Foundation' in November 2009. The Reliance Foundation would address social development imperatives of India, specifically quality, formal and vocational eduation, affordable high-quality health care, meaningful rural development and urban renewal, and protection and promotion of India's priceless heritage of arts and culture. Education Education continues to be one of the major thrust areas of RIL's CSR interventions. A network of 10 schools caters to over 14,000 students spread across geographies in India. RIL's CSR cells of its manufacturing divisions and E&P blocks work zealously, round the year to support the educational requirement of the surrounding community and schools in the neighbouring region benefiting thousands of students from the underpriviledged section of the society. RIL's project for physically challenged children at Surat, near the Hazira Manufacturing Division, is fast emerging as a global model of public-private partnership, supporting physically challenged children's education with a local NGO. A hostel for physically challenged female students from the underpriviledged segment of the society has also been constructed. With the support of state government of Gujarat, the school has been upgraded to Standard XII, thus becoming first such school in India. Project 'Jagruti', the project to tackle dyslexia in Surat, is yet another public-private partnership based successful CSR programme being run by RIL. This project is based on the Linda Bell Model for diagnosis of dyslexia. The project is fully piloted at RIL's J. H. Ambani School in Surat. The success of this programme has inspired many schools in Surat to replicate the model. The Reliance Jagruti project for dyslexia is setting the pace for the business world's response to the social stigma of the mentally underpriviledged children. Spouses of RIL employees from the Hazira Manufacturing Division are also supporting this activity. National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) registration has been initiated for the Academic Year (AY) 2010-11. RIL has established an 'Early Intervention & Rehabilitation Centre for Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities' at Tallarevu to cater to the needs of such children and others living in Tallarevu Mandal and Yanam Union Territory.
