Corporate Sustainability at TCS – 42 page report as of Jan. 2009
Maitree was started with an objective of bringing TCS associates and their families closer and making them feel a part of the TCS extended family. Soon after, with a view to carry on the TATA tradition of enabling the community, the scope of Maitree was enhanced to include socially relevant activities and endeavors.

TCS-Maitree has pro-actively worked towards providing an inclusive environment for the differently-abled.

Rural Development Initiative (at Panvel)
What started off as a children's education program has today grown into a larger movement with developmental activities in the areas of water supply, illiteracy, and women empowerment in addition to the focal point of education. Apart from setting up a primary and a secondary school, some other highlights of the education initiative are:
Taking up the cause of women empowerment, TCS-Maitree launched the WEP (Women Empowerment Program) where the women of the village were taught basic arithmetic and created awareness in health and hygiene. More than 25 women from three villages in the area have been trained in embroidery, stitching, and other textile craftwork over the last one year with help from the Women's India Trust. A new Gram Vikas Abhiyaan Kendra was recently inaugurated to facilitate income generation for the women.
