Mumbai: Heeding Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s call for a "Clean India" campaign, the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Monday pledged to construct toilets in 10,000 girls schools in the country, an official said here.
The TCS has set aside a Rs 100-crore budget for the initiative aimed at providing hygienic sanitation facilities to girl students, said N. Chandrasekaran, the company`s CEO and managing director.
The investment in school sanitation will help children, especially girl students, to participate in school education for a longer period of time and play a larger economic role in their communities.
"TCS is proud to support the prime minister`s `Clean India` initiative. We believe that achieving the mission of providing hygienic sanitation for girl students will have a tangible impact on the level of education achievement and development of India`s next generation," Chandrasekaran said.
