Community infrastructure

Some communities near to where we operate are severely under-equipped in terms of infrastructure. This is apparent in buildings, roads and facilities. Our role in these areas is to provide the solutions that offer the most practical support for the community.

Structural support where needed

We identify opportunities for specific efforts in buildings and infrastructure in the neighboring communities. These opportunities are determined together with the local community, focusing on the most critical requirements. Examples of areas where we contribute include:

  • Community centers
  • Schools
  • Roads
  • Homes
  • Rural power supplies
  • Irrigation and water storage facilities
  • Sanitation

Community infrastructure

We believe that the basics are non-negotiable: those closest to us need our practical support.

South Asia

Gummidipoondi – we partner with UNICEF to build child-friendly toilets, hand-wash stations and a napkin incinerator in a local school. We also installed water purifiers in nine government schools and a reverse osmosis plant in a nearby village to provide adequate drinking water for 2,500 children and 4,200 villagers.

Renukoot – We provide drinking water through reverse osmosis at a government school for the entire school. Our Trust also supports the school’s maintenance and provides other items required by the building.

South East Asia

Korea – we provide financial support for the maintenance of local welfare centers for migrant workers, women and their families. We welcomed new arrivals and invited them to tour our facility.

China – we support families in need through clothing donations.

Europe and Africa

Egypt – we equipped four nursery facilities in nearby villages with desks, chairs and materials for education and playrooms. We also collaborated with NGOs and the Ministry of environment to implement a garbage collection and disposal service in four nearby villages. We built four Community Development Centers which included a nursery, literacy facility, primary health center, tailoring center, offices, and other amenities.

Clean water and sanitation

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) is a priority for us, and we have been working to ensure that all of our sites provide safe access to WASH by FY2018.

Partnerships for the goals

We help achieve the goals by working closely with our stakeholders, including community groups, universities, NGOs and the Aditya Birla Group.
