Madison World has begun its CSR journey by starting an NGO named Madison Resource Foundation, that has adopted Tanya Computer Centre. Tanya Computer Centre was established in 2006 as a Computer Training Centre dedicated exclusively to training visually impaired people (all ages) in the use of computers. The centre has so far trained over 250 students.

 

Tanya Computer Centre is led by Tanya Balsara, daughter of Madison’s Chairman Sam Balsara who is herself visually challenged and she personally trains all students.

 

Says Tanya Balsara: “I congratulate all the students passing out as well as all the 250 students who have passed out earlier for having the courage and determination to come forward and learn something new and different. I have always believed that disabilities create barriers but determination breaks them. Remember the visually impaired may not have sight, but they don’t lack vision”.

 

Making the announcement about Madison World adopting Tanya Computer Centre at the 12th Convocation ceremony of Tanya Computer Centre, Sam Balsara said: “The Centre is looking to expand its activities in other parts of Mumbai and is looking for like-minded socially committed individuals who can personally lead the Centre and train its students. The Centre would be fully equipped with furniture and fittings, computers, software and entirely financed by Madison Resource Foundation in terms of both capital cost and revenue expenses including salaries”.
