Community infrastructure bears a direct impact on the standard of living and the micro economy of the community. Access to resources, increase in the avenues for developing livelihoods, safe & clean sources of drinking water, and access to qualitative primary health care systems lead to better productivity, reduction in morbidity and adequate employment.
Recognizing the government as the key player in the provision of basic infrastructure facilities, the Foundation endeavours to bridge the gaps and make its activities more need specific and responsive to the grassroots’ requirements.
Community Infrastructure Initiatives
Infrastructure for water conservation and clean drinking water
Apart from setting up RO plants, Adani Foundation has been implementing innovative practices of groundwater augmentation like rooftop rain water harvesting, pond deepening and recharging bore-wells. These techniques are affordable, easily implementable and highly replicable. The initiatives have resulted in deepening of 350 ponds and building of 20 check dams, thereby increasing the water storage capacity to 78.17.468 CUM. These efforts have reached 18645 farmers across 17457 acres of land in more than 100 villages at the cost of ₹2043 lakhs.
Amenities for fisher folk communities
The fishermen community is the largest group of beneficiaries of our initiatives in Mundra and Dhamra. In Mundra, the Foundation has assisted in providing good roads to reach sea shore settlements, platforms for drinking water, solar light, space for drying fish, appropriate shelters for the fisher-folk. In Dhamra’s fishing harbour, a solar fish dryer has been installed to be used by over 100 fishermen regularly. It has proven beneficial for the fishermen for drying up their fish in less time and in a hygienic manner.
Other (infrastructure for schools, gram panchayat, roads, solar lights etc)
To upgrade and provide adequate infrastructure in existing schools, Adani Foundation assists in constructing assembly halls, prayer hall, classrooms, toilets, computer labs, space for mid-day meals, playgrounds, school walls etc in various villages of Mundra, Hazira and Dhamra. Similar assistance is provided in upgrading drinking water facility and sanitation. Existing school buildings and healthcare centres are renovated as per requirement. Even homes are repaired and solar street lights are fitted in sites like Kamuthi, Dahej and Tiroda. In Surguja, various works such as construction of approach roads, pipe culverts, playground, market platforms, panchayat bhavans, electricity supplies etc. have been undertaken.
