Funds raised by donations of TCS and its associates were used to support rebuilding schools in Chiapas, Puebla, State of Mexico
In the aftermath of the earthquakes that hit Mexico in 2017, and under the slogan Fuerza México, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) launched a campaign, inviting its associates around the world to support reconstruction efforts in the country.
A year ago, in partnership with Compromiso Social Citibanamex, it announced a series of programs that have helped the rebuilding efforts in the areas affected by the earthquakes that hit several states in Mexico, including Chiapas, Puebla and the State of Mexico. Today, the newly rebuilt Rodulfo Figueroa Esquinca Middle School, located in the town of Cintalapa, Chiapas, has been inaugurated.
“It is very important for us to be able to help those affected by the earthquakes that hit Mexico, which is why TCS, as a global company, has supported this outstanding program. Our associates from around the world have demonstrated their commitment to supporting Mexico”, commented Marcelo Wurmann, CEO from TCS, Latin America.
In addition to the handover of the school in Chiapas, the program also supported the Miguel Hidalgo Elementary School in Jolalpan, Puebla, and the Normal No. 4 Middle and High Schools, located in Nezahualcóyotl, the State of Mexico.
After jointly evaluating the mission of Compromiso Social Citibanamex and the needs of the communities affected, TCS and its associates around the world contributed with donations to finance this project.
"Through the 1X1 program, we strengthened our role as the bank most committed to Mexico, by boosting the recovery of communities affected by natural disasters and promoting the reconstruction of housing and infrastructure, as well as economic reactivation. The delivery of this school excites and motivates us, since it reflects the permanent commitment with the society of Chiapas, as well as the transparency in the destination of the resources," commented Rodrigo Zorrilla, General Director of Citibanamex.
“It is a great source of pride for us to see our employees join forces to support the same cause. The country has gone through some difficult times since the catastrophe, but these examples of solidarity have helped us to get back on our feet, in both a physical and metaphorical sense. At TCS, we are committed to promoting the well-being, education and development of our talented young people, and the best way to reflect this commitment is by rebuilding educational institutions,” concluded Novonil Bhattacharya, Human Resources Director, TCS Latin America.
