New Delhi, India: Ambuja Cements, the cement and building material company of the diversified Adani Group, through its CSR arm, has notably addressed the critical water shortage in Magarway village in Baloda Bazaar-Bhatapara district, demonstrating its commitment toward rural communities.
The villagers faced significant challenges due to the dependency on the pond as their primary water source. The limited capacity of the pond led to water scarcity issues, impacting daily life, agriculture, and livestock. The community, recognizing the importance of the pond, sought its deepening to ensure a more reliable and sustainable water supply.
Ambuja Cements collaborated closely with local authorities to implement a comprehensive water conservation initiative. At the heart of this effort was the strategic deepening of the local pond—a lifeline for Magarway village.
The company’s efforts have substantially enhanced water availability for nearly 500 residents, positively impacting their daily lives by providing sustainable access to water. Now, the pond’s capacity has been expanded to an impressive 3,606 cubic meters, with a profound impact on groundwater levels, resulting in a water supply for 6 to 8 months annually.
Ambuja Cements’ initiative underscores a commitment to long-term, sustainable resource management going beyond immediate relief. This aligns seamlessly with the company’s mission to uplift rural communities and drive positive change. The Magarway pond deepening initiative exemplifies Ambuja Cements’ dedication to the social and environmental well-being of the regions it serves.
