Enriching Life and Liveability
A village nearby our factory was facing a shortage of water, which is essential for all lives. So, Stovekraft came up with an initiative to solve the problem by digging a borewell for the village in order to meet the water crisis of the villagers. The new borewell is used by more than 250 families for drinking and domestic use. Local governing authorities have taken the access to supply the water to the village with a scheme. The village community is extremely happy as Stovekraft cleared the water crisis as well as let them use the water effectively in their livelihood activities.
Scaling Up the Infrastructure
We are focused on balancing economic prosperity, environmental responsibility and social benefits for the community. With that goal, Stovekraft decided to build a concrete pathway in front of our factory, where it was washed away during the rains. The pathway stretches over 500 feet in length. After the construction of the pathway, it enabled our factory employees to park their vehicles at their convenience. Even, we helped the local farmers to sell their fresh vegetables directly to the thousands of employees of the factory, as they left the premises after their shifts.
CSR Interventions in Primary Education
Stovekraft believes that every individual is entitled to the Right to Education. We aim to accomplish this through various projects designed around educating the marginalized and backward sections of society. Our projects in education started with sponsoring the construction of raw materials and renovating the local government primary school buildings. We also placed the benches and tables inside the classrooms, so that students should not sit on the floor. We came up with the initiative in 2010 to supply books and stationery for the academic year and later on we continued every year.
