Caring - Balancing

March to Sun

Sayaji with its constant endeavor to serve society took an initiative to not only help light up lakhs of houses with the electricity but also promote employee wellness. Sayaji partnered with Impact App which is a unique platform to raise funds by making people fit. An employee taking part in this event could raise INR 1 for the cause with every 100 meters that he walked or ran.
