Uniting and Enriching Communities: Project ARAM

At United Way of Chennai, we believe in the transformative power of volunteering. Our platform, Project ARAM serves as a conduit for corporate employees and individuals alike to step into leadership roles, enriching their lives while making a tangible difference in the community. Through a myriad of initiatives, we facilitate meaningful engagements that not only benefit those we serve but also foster personal and professional growth.

Our volunteering initiatives are as diverse as the communities we aim to impact. From planting tree saplings in communities to painting vibrant murals in schools and Anganwadi Centres, each endeavor is driven by the collective desire to create positive change. Through these activities, participants forge new bonds, expand their networks, and transcend boundaries through meaningful participation.

For our corporate partners, Project ARAM offers a spectrum of opportunities to engage with their communities and demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility. Whether it’s mentoring students on career paths, creating and distributing school supply kits, or advocating for eco-friendly practices, we tailor our initiatives to align with their values and objectives.

1. Paint-a-thon & Craft-a-thought: Bringing color and creativity to educational spaces through vibrant murals and innovative learning aids and materials through craft projects.
