Apart from TFI, Thermax Foundation is actively engaged in the educational initiatives of Pune City Connect (PCC), a collaborative platform between corporates, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and NGOs for the development of the city of Pune. TF continues to support the educational arm of PCC through which a cadre of trainers (Sahyogi Dal) engage in the professional development of teachers in Marathi medium PMC schools.
Another initiative patronised by Thermax Foundation is the CII Foundation Woman Exemplar Programme that recognises exemplary women working at the grassroots, particularly in the field of education, health and micro-enterprise. For the cohort of 31 women exemplars from 2017 and 2018, CII organised a leadership training and capacity building workshop to encourage collective learning amongst them where TF was one of the key sponsors. The training focused on the identification of personal strengths, the building of effective networking skills, advocacy, marketing and fundraising abilities needed for the women to achieve their short term and long-term goals.
