Our Road to School initiative which expanded to Kolli Malai in July
this year has been successfully reaching out to the government schools
in the area with remedial education, health and wellness initiatives,
breakfast for children, sports and music training.
This project in Kolli Malai is expected to benefit approximately 4200
students annually and will support 60 government schools in remote
schools in the hills of Kolli Malai.
Kolli Malai is a remote mountain range at an altitude of 1300 mts
spread over 280 square kilometers. The region has 60 government
primary and middle schools catering mostly to tribal children. Ashok
Leyland is one of the first corporate to take its CSR initiative to
such remote region in Tamil Nadu state.
Our RTS program started in the year 2015 with 36 Schools in
Shoolagiri and Anchetty in Krishnagiri District, Tamil Nadu. The
success of the program has encouraged us to further expand to the
districts of Tiruvallur, Namakkal and Salem in the last four years
covering 714 Schools impacting around 56000 Students in Govt Primary
and Upper Primary schools.
This year we plan to reach out to over 56000 students covering 714
schools in Tamil Nadu.

Nutrition Supplement, Emotional Development including Sports and
Music. Ashok Leyland’s CSR initiative Road to School is present in 333
