Kochi, September 22 2015: UST Global, a leading digital technology services company that provides powerful solutions for Global 1000 companies, and a partner to Peace One Day, an organization that celebrates a day of non-violence across the globe on September 21, observed International Day of Peace (Peace Day) across its offices in India including Kochi.
In Kochi, the employees participated in a two-hour professional painting workshop by Mrs. Nimmy Melvin, a Kerala State Award Winner painter. This was followed by a painting competition where employees used artistic expressions to convey their thoughts on peace. The winner of the best painting was presented with an award, while some of the paintings were also set aside for auctioning, the proceeds of which will go to charity.
Additionally, the Kochi center also hosted a talk by Isha Yoga Foundation on how Yoga and meditation can build a peaceful world.
Speaking on the association with Peace One Day, Nikki Arora, Chief Marketing Officer, UST Global, said, “UST Global’s culture is that of a successful business that serves the greater good in society and contributes positively to the communities that we operate in. Our partnership with Peace One Day over the past few years is an integral part of our ongoing commitment to transforming 3 billion lives.”

We have actively engaged our employees through various activities to promote these values which are integral to UST Global’s core values.”
Founded in 1999 by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, Peace One Day drove the initiative that led to the unanimous adoption by the United Nations member states of an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day.
