PUNE, India - March 13, 2014 - Amdocs India today announced that it has been a winner in the 2014 Global CSR Excellence & Leadership Awards, which recognize best practices in corporate social responsibility, in the "Support and Improvement in Quality of Education" category. Award winners were announced at World CSR Day last month, at the World CSR Congress in Mumbai.

"We are extremely proud to be recognized as a prominent contributor to the promotion of quality education for children in India," said Anshoo Gaur, president and head of Amdocs India. "Social responsibility is an integral part of the Amdocs culture. We execute upon it with the aim of driving sustainable and measurable impact. Being there for the children and for the institutions that care for them, with both company funding and volunteer work, is how we believe we can drive the greatest change."
In addition to the corporate award, Priti Khare, manager of the CSR program at Amdocs India, was named among the ‘50 Most Talented CSR Professionals of India'.
"Beyond school studies, we focus on the children's holistic development, aiming to provide them with life skills and promote their self-esteem, confidence and sense of empowerment," said Priti Khare. "Our unique ‘Mentor Together' initiative, launched in partnership with the not-for-profit organization ‘Mentor Together,' is one example of how we aim to achieve this through one-on-one mentoring of underprivileged children and youth by our employees. Such programs are true catalysts of change in the lives of these children and youth, and help increase their potential to acquire higher education and better employment opportunities."
