We strongly believe in contributing positively to society. Evoke actively supports various Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs to conserve the environment and aid local communities. Evoke’s CSR team brings a fresh perspective and vigor to the various CSR programs being conducted by the organization.
COVID-19 Pandemic: Feeding the needy, Fighting the hunger
Several of Evoke Technologies’ CSR volunteers reached out to the people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially daily wagers to provide them food. The volunteers took all the necessary hygiene precautions by wearing gloves and face masks and using hand sanitizers during food distribution. While confronting a pandemic of this magnitude and type, Evoke Technologies believes that it’s important that we all work together to not only deal with this crisis and minimize its human impact, but also learn from these extraordinary times, to develop a more resilient community, based on equity, humaneness, and ecological sustainability.
Independence Day in Adopted School
To commemorate India’s 73rd Independence Day, Evoke Technologies held 15th August celebrations at the Government Primary School Bhuvana Vijaya, KPHB.

Evoke’s CSR Team conducted a prize-distribution ceremony for various competitions, donated shoes to all 143 students and two laptops to make tech accessible to the kids.

Eco-friendly Bags: A Go Green Initiative
To bring awareness and change in the society, Evoke’s CSR Team promoted the use of eco-friendly handbags over hazardous-to-nature plastic bags. This initiative was very well-received by the employees of Evoke who pledged to do their bit towards conserving the environment and considered buying nature-friendly bags for use in everyday life. These eco-friendly bags were available for sale from a Nonprofit Government Organization (NGO) and the funds raised were used to support an underprivileged govt school through relevant resources.
School Development Program: Evoke’s CSR Initiative
Evoke’s CSR initiatives are always aimed to benefit the community at large by driving initiatives that lead to the advancement of humankind and society. This time, we did our bit by supporting Primary Bhuvana Vijayam Govt. school. In an effort to improve the quality of infrastructure and education for the students, Evoke donated school bags, benches, and other fundamental facilities to the school.
Hafizpet & Nizampet Lake Revival Activities
“Saving nature does not require only money, but willpower and a collective effort,” believes our CSR Team, who along with employees participated in lake clean-up activities in Hafeezpet and Nizampet, organized by a couple of NGOs. These lake revival efforts, held during the alternate weeks of June, were joined in by different companies who helped to push these water bodies to their former natural glory. Evoke is always willing to be a part of such initiatives.
During the auspicious week of Diwali, Evoke’s CSR team invited the team from ‘Autism Research & Multidisciplinary School (ARMS)’ to showcase the creative goodies made by the talented students of ARMS. The representatives of ARMS set up their stalls showcasing handmade Diya’s, greeting cards, chocolates, paper bags, etc. This unique event also offered employees of Evoke an opportunity to interact closely with ARMS and understand the issues and challenges they face in running the organization.
School Books and Stationery Donation
With the aim to develop literacy skills among children in government schools, Evoke in support from its employees initiated a donation drive to distribute stationery items such as books, pens, pencils, etc., to the Zilla Parishad High School, Babbuguda, Erragadda, Hyderabad. Employees contributed overwhelmingly with the relevant resources for these underprivileged school kids. In an effort to alter the present scenario, Evoke also spent time with the school management to understand the specific needs and problems of the students.
Making Wishes Come True: A CSR Initiative
In yet another CSR endeavor, Evoke collected wishes from over 50 kids from Sankalp Foundation – an organization dedicated to the development of children in need, and fulfilled them with the support of our committed employees passionate about making a difference in the lives of the less privileged. We hope to carry out more such special programs for these kids to bring extra joy, hope, and smiles to their faces.
Traffic Awareness Campaign
Employees of Evoke Technologies volunteered to help the Cyberabad Traffic Police manage traffic at Cyber Towers signal junction. Evoke’s team not only helped the traffic police in managing traffic, but they were also spreading awareness of traffic rules and road safety. The Cyberabad Traffic Police truly appreciated the efforts of our team. It is Evoke’s way of showing care and concern towards the community.
Sponsoring Food Expenses for a Shelter Home
Evoke plays an active role in giving back to the less-privileged and being socially responsible. Continuing on the path we set out for ourselves, our CSR Team donated a month’s groceries to Good Samaritans, a home for destitute in Kompally. A ten-member SBU team visited and spent time with the residents & staff of the shelter home to understand their day to day concerns and explore various ways through which we can extend our support.
Sponsoring School Fee & Groceries for Orphaned Kids
Evoke Technologies sponsors a variety of projects and initiatives and believes, for a responsible organization, contributing to the needs of the local region is a natural part of their corporate social responsibility. In the wake of which, Evoke got together with its employees and raised funds to sponsor the school fees of 10 kids of Amma Odi Orphanage studying at Karunya Model school for a complete year, and also paid for one month’s grocery expenses for 25 kids at Amma Odi Orphanage in Boduppal.
Celebrating Raksha Bandhan with the Specially-abled
Evoke as a part of its CSR initiatives joined hands with the Autism Research & Multidisciplinary School run by Abhya Care Foundation to spread awareness about the specially-abled, and break the different myths associated with the disability. The representatives from ARMS set up a stall showcasing a selection of artwork created by these specially-abled students. The funds derived from the sale of the goodies were used to support the vocational students of the school.
Evoke’s CSR team is committed to helping the society. The team conducted a donation drive across the organization to collect funds, which would help provide education to the underprivileged children.
