In January 2019, Thermax Lucknow team collaborated with channel partners from Thermodynamic, Nikhil Technochem and Thermoline to volunteer at Sarthak Foundation’s training centre at Lucknow.
Founder Dr Jitendra Agarwal, who was earlier a successful dentist but lost his vision at the peak of thriving career and prosperity, Sarthak works for the skill building and employability of physically and visually challenged individuals. Today, Sarthak has training institutes, as also early detection and rehabilitation centres, across locations in India.
Sarthak employees shared a presentation on the number of disabled candidates trained and employed, in the last few years and later conducted a sensitisation exercises for Thermax volunteers which involved blindfolding, hopping on one leg and communicating through sign language, followed by powerful debrief, discussion and reflection on ‘wider perspective’.
The students of Sarthak Foundation interacted with Thermax volunteers with zest and those with hearing impairment communicated with the help of interpreter through sign language with equal enthusiasm.
