We are cognisant that the challenges faced by our country cannot be solved by just one entity and hence through our various initiatives, CAF India has consistently worked towards igniting a spirit of partnership in resolving diverse causes and development challenges faced in the global and national context. Most of our corporate partners involved sanitation projects range from diverse sectors primarily FMCG, IT, Textile, etc. We are involved in advancing our partners sustainability interventions in the remote areas where their factories, bottling plants, manufacturing units are located. There is a tremendous pressure on water resources, which has resulted in stress in availability of both surface and groundwater resources. Also, the communities are so marginalised that nearby schools and other facilities face deteriorated sanitation conditions due to lack of water availability and awareness. We initiated the task of reviving water bodies along with providing clean sanitation facilities in these areas as these are the immediate source for promoting safe, clean and health environment. This also implies that any local intervention conducted in the area of reviving, restoring and providing access to clean water and sanitation will directly benefit to the immediate section of the marginalised population residing in the nearby remote areas. Thus also leveraging the engagement of our corporate partners in the local areas of interventions and accentuating the impact in diverse states of India. These strategic interventions also enables alignment of their CSR operation with core business.
While CAF India is cause universal, sanitation is one of the key sectors of our involvement. In the last decade, as part of our Public-Private-Community initiative, we have successfully managed implementation of several collaborative, pro poor projects that have addressed sanitation issues, facilitated service delivery for the urban and rural communities and built their capacities. These projects have largely and regularly been supported by private sector, individuals, institutions and UN agencies. Working at the crux of a changing development landscape we need to do more and expect support and guidance from all sections of the society at large to be successful in our endeavour to do more in order to transform lives and communities.
