Doing Good, Together
Everyone at GEP can make an impact through the GEPSI program. Here are just some of our stories and programs:
International Women’s Day
The GEPSI team celebrates International Women’s day by organizing workshops and conferences in all its global offices. They observe the achievements of social, economic, cultural and political successes of women all over the world.
Backpack Buddies aims to provide the children living in homeless shelters with the school supplies they need for the upcoming school year. GEPSI supports the Win shelter in New York City, serving close to 12,000 women and their children each year.
Rutgers Half Marathon & 8K
Several U.S. team members ran the Rutgers half marathon and 8K together. To cheer them on, GEPSI organized a fundraiser where we contributed to each runner. All contributions went to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Sports for Teenage Refugees
The GEPSI Prague team organized a sports tournament for teenage refugees in partnership with the Facility for Foreign Kids, a non-profit that helps refugee children adapt to everyday life.
The GEPSI U.S. team organized a career fair for women in homeless shelters in the NY and NJ area. They also assisted the women in putting together resumes and gave job advice.
Speakers and Workshops
GEPSI India regularly invites esteemed speakers like Saskia Bruysten from the Yunuz Foundation and Nimish Patel from Empty Hands to meet with and influence employees to spread kindness and giving.
Happy Feet Home
Our GEPSI India team works with this hospice for children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
Running for the Girl Child
22 GEPpers from our Hyderabad office ran a 5k/10K on 22nd January 2017, as part of a GEPSI sponsored fundraising event to support Seva Bharathi’s “Kishori Vikas” – a program designed to educate and empower adolescent girl children in slums.
The House of Three Wishes
GEPSI Prague organized a Garden Party to raise money for the charity The House of Three Wishes (Dům tří přání). These funds go toward Dům tří přání's plans to organize a summer camp for children facing family issues like negligence, alcoholism and domestic abuse.
Feeding a Million Mouths
Reaching out to the underserved in society has for long been one of the foremost ideals of corporate social responsibility at GEP. In August 2017, GEPSI joined hands with the Akshaya Patra Foundation to flag off a fleet of food delivery vehicles that will support distribution of daily meals to underprivileged children in government run schools. The goal is to provide over one million meals that will feed poor school children all over India, every day.
All of our offices around the world participate in GEPSI activities and fundraisers, and remember, even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference to one person.
Be a catalyst for change – because we can achieve great things together.
