Target Corporation India Private Limited partners with Smile Foundation to support education of underprivileged children
Target Corporation India Private Limited has been supporting Smile Foundation since 2009 under their ‘International Giving Programme’. Target’s International Giving Programme focuses on supporting quality, promoting integrated healthcare, environmental sustainability, accessible education for children and youth to help address these critical needs which benefit not only individuals, but also the entire community. Apart from financial support, the employees of the organization volunteer every month for the welfare of the Mission Education project.
