Bosch’s Corporate Social Responsibility( CSR) Program in association with Youth for Seva was inaugurated on August 3rd, 2010, with a Comprehensive Medical Screening Camp for around 240 children from Munichinappa Government School, Adugodi.

The plan is to adopt a government school (Munichinnappa Govt School) close to the Bosch campus at Adugodi and monitor the health of the children for a period of 3 years. The initial screening camp conducted on August 3rd will be followed by monitored referrals for each child which will be undertaken by Bosch employees. The screening was done for children from std 1 to std 7 and the children from std 1 to std 5 will be considered for the 3 year plan.


The project was led by Dr. Y. Raghavan (Chief Medical Officer, Bosch), along with Mr. Rajanna.S (CSR Consultant, Bosch) and Mr. Prabhakar (Senior Manager, Bosch).

There were 8 General Physicians, 2 Ophthalmologists and 10 Dentists who conducted the screening process. Around 40 employees from Bosch and 6 volunteers from Youth for Seva ensured the smooth running of the camp.


The patience and cooperation of doctors involved in the screening process was responsible to a great extent for the success of the camp.
