Engage is a social corporate responsibility project from Pratyarpana (CSR from Calpine Group). This is conceived in association with IIM Kozhikode - Kochi Campus. The project aims at upbringing the talents of the pupil of Govt.VHSS Ambalamugal.


To cater to the mounting needs of the less privileged section in the society by providing them financial and moral support, thereby bringing them to the forefront of the society.

We felt the need to awaken the sense of moral responsibility among our employees and bring them close to the less privileged in our society. This basic idea gave way to a great step in implementing the corporate social responsibility program - Engage. This is not restricted to providing soccer coaching to the students, but it also involves giving academic guidance to selected students from various schools in Kochi.

The Engage program started in 2015 by providing soccer training to the selected students of Govt. VHSS Ambalamugal and worked towards the overall development of the kids. Along with Calpine, IIMK Kochi is a major stakeholder, taking Engage as their flagship program.

In 2016, the program was extended to the Govt High School, Thengode providing coaching to 19 selected students. As a direct impact of our program, absenteeism reduced among students and they were motivated to perform well in their classes.

Recognizing the need to include more deserving students in the fold, this year, Calpine is associating with the Govt. High School, Edappally to begin the Engage program in the school. The inauguration of Engage at this school is scheduled to happen on 4th August, 2017.
