We at Alkem, believe in prescribing and spreading SMILES. SMILE (Support to Make Individual Lives Easier) is an employee volunteering platform established to increase employee participation in CSR activities so that they may own and inherit the same as part of their regular practice.

In culmination, the tale of "Employee Volunteering (SMILE)" at Alkem narrates a saga of collective determination, rendering social action synonymous with organizational ethos. With each engagement, Alkemites continue to illuminate lives, embodying the philosophy that impactful change sprouts from concerted endeavors.

Fund Raising for Establishment of Library - A book fair was conducted to facilitate the establishment of libraries in rural areas. We sourced donated books from a like-minded civil society organization and our employees purchased the books to raise funds for the cause. This initiative aimed to foster literacy and knowledge in underserved communities by establishing accessible libraries, promoting learning, and enhancing educational opportunities.

Donate your voice - "Donate Your Voice", a campaign focused on recording audiobooks to benefit visually impaired individuals. The initiative aimed to support a digital library for easy access to literary content, empowering the visually impaired community with the joy of literature. The campaign sought to bridge the gap in accessibility and promote inclusion through the gift of narrated stories

Awarathon - A walk organized to raise awareness of dementia and Alzheimer's became a platform for individuals of all age groups. Not only did it attract diverse participants, but it also provided a safe and supportive environment for the elderly. The positive feedback from the targeted community highlights the success of the initiative in sensitizing participants and supporting those affected by memory-related disorders.

Signature Campaign for World AIDS Day - With unwavering empathy, we launched a signature campaign on World AIDS Day to lend their voice and support to individuals impacted by HIV across our all locations i.e. Corporate Offices, Manufacturing & R&D unit, confronting not only the medical aspects but also the societal stigma.

Mangrove cleanup drive - Recognizing our environmental responsibility, we conducted a mangrove cleanup drive. Employees actively participated in collecting plastic and non-biodegradable waste entangled in the mangroves. The initiative not only contributed to environmental conservation but also enhanced the lives of the inhabitants in and around the mangroves.

Library sessions in government schools aimed to foster a love for reading among students. Volunteers conducted reading sessions during library hours for fifth-grade students in a government school. The activity not only improved students' reading habits and pronunciation but also motivated them to embrace reading as a hobby.

Visit to Remedial Center - One of our flagship initiatives was a visit to the remedial center and motivated the students to continue their studies. Along with these volunteers, they also supported the establishment of a library in the slums of Dharavi. This volunteer platform focused on collecting books and stationery from our employees to create a library in the Remedial Center. The library now serves as a valuable resource for the community, offering stationery, bags, and a diverse selection of books, ranging from dictionaries to comic books. The initiative not only supports academic pursuits but also encourages recreational reading and provides a conducive learning environment for the beneficiaries.

Celebrating birthdays at an orphanage became a regular volunteer activity. Volunteers visited the orphanage monthly, organizing birthday celebrations for the girls residing there. This initiative provided a sense of care, compassion, and belonging to the beneficiaries.

Food distribution drive - At Alkem, volunteering is regarded as the expression of the connection that we have with the communities we are serving. As a part of our employee volunteering campaign, pillars of our business (sales team) came forward and supported a meal distribution drive organized for caregivers of patients at KEM and BYL Nair hospitals in Mumbai.
