Detectamet is delighted to have contributed £1125 to the Gian Foundation to help in its efforts to sponsor the education of underprivileged children, primarily but not exclusively, blind and orphaned, thus enabling them to earn a living for themselves in the future.
The foundation was started by Yashpal Anand, to enable children to have the opportunity to get an education – academic or vocational giving them a chance to move out of poverty: to increase their self-respect and become useful members of the community. Each sponsored child continues to be helped as long as they successfully complete their studies each year.
“This worthy cause has practical aims which can result in lasting benefits for those it helps” said Sean Smith CEO of Pocklington based Detectamet Ltd.
Yashpal Anand and his wife Gillian said:
“We are so grateful to Angela and Sean for this generous donation. It will help us to continue our support of students in Liberia, Sri Lanka India and visually impaired students at Hull College.”
Yashpal was inspired to start the foundation by his Uncle who earned money to feed himself by learning to play music. The donation was made following voluntary work that Yashpal carried out at Detectamet as a consultant.
“Our detectable products are used by food companies around the world “said Detectamet’s MD Angela Musson
“and this is another way we can help to give back to those in need as part of our Social and Corporate Responsibility overseas.”
