The world around us faces enormous challenges in the provision of basic public services to large parts of the population, both in rural and urban centers. Over the years, we have made strides in bridging gaps in the supply of public services through different initiatives and programs.
Also, we currently benefit from a demographic dividend, – the large percentage of young and income generating population. There is, at the same time, a strong need to ensure that the youth are offered opportunities – to enhance their skills that can help maximize economic opportunities and to develop skills, empathy, and ethical standards. There is also a growing realization that complex and seemingly insurmountable social problems cannot be solved by individual organizations or a single stakeholder group. It requires different parts of the ecosystem such as funders, government, non-profits, corporates, and media to work collaboratively to create long-term social change.
We have been focusing on the following areas for undertaking our CSR activities, which are periodically reviewed by our CSR committee.
We are supplying Reverse Osmosis (RO)-water not only to our employees and employees’ quarters but also to the local population in the nearby villages. We have also installed RO-systems along with other required infrastructure like water coolers in the nearby schools and villages for their usage.
UMEED – Women Empowerment
Supporting females of surrounding villages for becoming self-reliant. We undertake six-month tailoring and garment making skill-development programs for development of women from the nearby villages and towns so that they can become self-reliant. Many of these women have started earning and many of them also get employed at local garment making industries.
