We are excited to share that our voluntary initiative on Financial Literacy has been recognised as the most ‘Impactful Sustainable Business Practice in Women Empowerment’ by AIBCF’s CSR & Sustainability Awards held on February 20, 2024, in New Delhi. 

The All India Business & Community Foundation (AIBCF) Awards for CSR and Sustainability recognises, and honors the exemplary efforts of companies dedicated to fostering positive social impact and environmental stewardship. The accolade also acknowledges the profound commitment of the enterprises toward addressing societal challenges, advancing sustainable development goals, and setting benchmarks for responsible business practices.

We started the programme on Financial Literacy with our CSR arm Paytm Foundation. We believe financial literacy is a key driver to economic empowerment and social progress. Through this programme, we bridged the gap by providing valuable knowledge and skills that empower women to make informed financial decisions, create budgets, save for the future, and build a foundation for financial independence.

Through our CSR initiative, we profoundly touched the lives of innumerable individuals. We reached over 1000 women with insightful one-hour sessions with the help of various non-profit organisations and Paytmers. We also curated a course, especially for women, where Paytmers volunteered to deliver the sessions. Being a leader in finance, we provided the best financial advice through training. 

The volunteers, including workshop facilitators, shared their financial expertise and guidance through key concepts. Besides supporting the event by assisting with logistics and registration, we also ensured a smooth experience for all attendees. Paytm Foundation mentors them by providing training to the target audience, answering questions, and offering personalised advice.

The award signifies that we have made a difference, and are successfully creating a new benchmark by empowering women, creating awareness, and driving inclusion. 

We are on a mission to create more inclusiveness and empower communities. In keeping with our mission, we will be working towards our special initiative to promote financial literacy among underprivileged women.
