As the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) division of Ambuja Cements Ltd., Ambuja Cement Foundation (ACF) has served rural communities surrounding their cement manufacturing sites since 1993.
With their mission to “energise, involve and enable communities to realize their potential,” ACF strives to tackle issues pertaining to water management, agriculture, skills, women’s empowerment, health, and education, based upon the needs of the local community. By working to solve these issues they promote social and economic development for long-lasting change.
Since starting in rural communities around Ambuja’s main cement plant in Kodinar, Gujarat, ACF has been able to replicate their CSR efforts in 950 villages in 21 different locations and are continuing to grow.
