Gummidipoondi, India – We sponsored a new garbage-collection vehicle for local villages, as well as greenery development and wildlife conservation programs. We renovated a community health center in Pappankuppam village in association with the Rotary Club of Gummidipoondi Industrial City. We also provided funding to install household toilets and a reverse osmosis plant in two villages to ensure safe, potable water for villagers. Development of an overhead water tank ensured villagers had a water supply even during times of power cut or low water availability. Mini mast lights and streetlights have been installed by Birla Carbon Gummidipoondi, reducing mugging and providing safer environments for our employees after dark.
