App Orchid, a leading enterprise AI platform and solutions company, announced the launch of aoKares, the company’s new corporate social responsibility program. The vision of aoKares, founded in memory of the company’s founder, Krishna Kumar, is to partner with grassroots organizations to bring positive and meaningful change in the areas of education parity, mental health & wellness, and homelessness.
App Orchid intends to embed the program into the culture of the company by promoting partner organizations and supporting fundraising drives and events. App Orchid will establish an annual match target for donations that come through its aoKares initiative.
“At App Orchid, we are committed to building better lives for our employees and our communities, said Vaibhav Nadgauda, CEO of App Orchid. “Hema Ramaswamy, Krishna’s wife, has been instrumental in shaping the aoKares initiative to honor Krishna’s legacy of giving. We are honored to be able to support that vision through aoKares and look forward to making a positive impact with our partners in the areas of education parity, mental health & wellness and homelessness.”
App Orchid has partnered with two organizations to launch its initiative, Foundation for Bright Future and Homeless Children’s Network. Foundation for Bright Future is a volunteer run organization that helps raise funds for Balodyan, a registered organization working for improvement in the rural education system in the Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, India.
“At the Foundation for Bright Future, we are committed to providing education and shelter for orphans and underprivileged children in rural India”, said Shailesh Shilwant, President of Foundation for a Bright Future.“We are very excited and humbled to join hands with App Orchid, our first corporate partner, on their aoKares initiative. The funds raised through this partnership will create a life changing impact and hope for a bright future for these underprivileged children. We would like to thank the aoKares team for giving us the opportunity to honor the late Krishna Kumar’s legacy of giving by making a positive impact to the world.”
Homeless Children’s Network is an organization that empowers children, youth, and families towards a brighter future by decreasing the trauma of homelessness and domestic violence. They provide culturally affirming direct mental health services, at no cost to families, for as long as needed.
“Support from App Orchid through the aoKares initiative will help to make our work possible with homeless and at-risk children and will honor the memory of App Orchid’s founder Krishna Kumar. Together, we can uplift one another to help families reach towards a place of healing and strength.” said Hilary Bothma, Development and Communications Director of Homeless Children’s Network.
