Project Description

The Company contributed to the CSR by carrying out various projects like:

Drinking-Water: By the end of the year 2018, ACF completed construction of 425 check dams, 6684 RRWHS, treated 25209 hectares for Watershed Development, which along with other projects created a cumulative water storage capacity of 54 MCM, across all locations. As a step towards sustainability of the impact created by the program, community institutions such as Water User Associations (WUAs), Paani Samiti, Village Watershed Committee (VWC) play significant roles in planning and execution of water project; and are also trained and empowered to ensure post-project repair and maintenance of assets created.

Animal Husbandry and Livelihoods: In 2018, ACF reached out to total 1,75,000 farmers through the agricultural livelihoods program. The major projects in Agricultural Livelihoods, active across 17 locations are Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), System of Rice Intensification (SRI), Salinity Ingress Mitigation, Organic Farming, Wadi Development, Fruit and Vegetable Cultivation, Animal Husbandry and Aquaculture. Among these projects, another important project is that of Farmer Producer Organisations (FPO), to build a collective bargaining power of farmers for the procurement of inputs and marketing of produce.

Health and Sanitation: The Community Health and Sanitation program works under the thrust areas of Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health, Communicable and NonCommunicable Diseases, Total Sanitation and Curative Health. In the year 2017, responding to the growing burden of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) among the rural population, ACF had rolled out a program on Awareness and Prevention of NCD. In 2018, realizing the extent and the impact of this need, the NCD program has been expanded, reaching out to 105 villages throughout the country, with scope to expand further in 2019. Further addressing the lifecycle that leads to the emergence of NCDs, ACF has also launched programs addressing Malnutrition in 30 Anganwadis at Dadri. This program too is designed for further expansion in 2019. Under community health, ACF also engages with truckers who are large yet vulnerable group of Stakeholders for ACL. ACF in collaboration with Apollo Tyres Foundation runs Health Care Centres for truckers at Surat, Sankrail, Nalagarh, and Farakka. In the year 2018, these centers reached out to 66455 truckers, addressing STIs, HIV, common ailments, lifestyle diseases, vision problems, and overall safety behavior.

The Company has thereby contributed towards overall social development.
