Every year, ZSers in our India offices participate in a variety of special activities and events to celebrate Diwali, the annual Hindu festival of lights. One of these events, known as Family Day, invites the family members of ZSers to join in on the festivities, acknowledging the important role that families play in shaping one’s success.
In addition to the usual array of Diwali-centered activities, great food and exciting ZSer performances, this year the New Delhi office welcomed a few very special guests to join the celebration. Children from two of our ZS Cares partners—NeeV and HOPE foundation—were invited to showcase their dancing talents on stage, dazzling the audience with two spectacular performances. It was a special moment for both the children and for ZS, and it demonstrated the great partnership that has formed with these incredible organizations through our ZS Cares program.
The ZS Cares program enables ZSers to leverage their skills and talent to support and empower the communities in which they live and work. Over the years, ZSers have joined forces with NeeV to support the learning and growth of the students by setting up a school library, organizing their annual spring festival and inviting the children to join ZS’s annual tree planting initiative. The HOPE foundation works to bring about change in the lives of children, young people and vulnerable individuals by providing education, healthcare and a safe home. ZSers have partnered with HOPE to tutor children in Math and English and educate children about the benefits of timely vaccinations.
