Every year we add fresh initiatives to our already long list of existing projects while continuing to nurture and expand them. We are happy that the government has been equally enthusiastic in supporting our efforts to ensure sustainable benefits to the society. The budgets for these projects are generated through the sale of our cars. Going forward we shall be engaging our customers as well to be part of these efforts.”

“I am happy that Hyundai Motor India Foundation has wholeheartedly taken part in working together with the district administration to develop the local community. To date more than 54 villages and 62 schools in the state have benefitted from their initiatives. I attribute the success of these projects to their continued engagement with the community and constant monitoring. They are a role model for other corporates to follow” said Thiru. S. Sivashanmuga Raja, IAS, District Collector, Kancheepuram.

Project 'Go Green' is an income generating tree planting project with a difference. Undertaken along with TIST, the project envisages distributing one lakh saplings to farmers in a phased manner. The farmer will plant the sapling on his land holdings and be paid by HMIF for its upkeep and maintenance. The proceeds from sale of the produce will add to his income. Saplings like, teak, jackfruit, mango etc will be given out. HMIL along with TIST will regularly monitor the progress.
