Corporate Social Responsibility
Your company is committed to creating exceptional value
for its customers, employees, shareholders, vendors and the
communities it operates in, through core values of Learning,
Excellence, Teamwork and Speed.
Dalmia has three integrated sugar mills in Uttar Pradesh with
well developed CSR programmes centred around Nigohi,
Jawaharpur and Ramgarh. Covering a total of 22 villages
making a difference in the lives of approximately 30,000 people.
Aiming to maintain zero and infant mortality at our villages,
and to ensure maximum health for every child between 0
to 5 years, we have taken up special efforts through CSR
programs. Every pregnant mother is enrolled in our Ante
Natal Care program for regular check up by doctors, regular
visit to the nearby primary health centres, and provision of
protein and iron supplements and a special health camp
exclusively for them.
Basic health services are available on all health camps
to benefit the elderly. Emphasis is placed on maternal and
child health interventions targeting 100% immunization and
pre and post-natal care, aiming to bring down infant and
maternal mortality rates. Approximately 800 children have
been immunized during the health camps. Expectant mothers
are enrolled for routine check-ups and institutional delivery
after we emphasized on the need for periodic prenatal care
to ensure safety of both mother and child. Approximately 600
women were provided with pre and post natal care.
From the perspective of universal education, we are
committed to ensuring compulsory primary education,
and completely eliminating dropouts. This was given much
needed impetus in Uttar Pradesh. Additionally, 813 slow
learners in Uttar Pradesh were supported with remedial
education. To ensure that the drop-out students are
brought back to school, special campaigns were run in the
Focus is kept onanganwadi centers to strengthen the
pre-primary education as well as to ensure smooth transition
from there to the primary schools. Basic infrastructural
facilities are created at all levels, pre-primary as well as
primary. Additional teachers are provided to improve the
pupil to teacher ratio. What makes our programme special
is that each child is given individual attention for its holistic
growth and development.
Eight drop-out students have been enrolled in junior school
in Kesvamau Village, Gondlamau Block, and Sitapur. In
all we have 750 students enrolled under the 22 centres of
5 small libraries have been developed in our remedial centres
so that children realise the importance of reading and make
it a daily habit.
New techniques like TLMs and cartoons are used as
techniques to encourage children to study. TLM is a
commonly used acronym that stands for teaching/learning
materials. Broadly, the term refers to a spectrum of
educational materials that teachers use in the classroom to
support a specific learning objective. For example usage of
story books, videos, flash cards and games. These tools can
make learning much more effective and fun in classrooms.
A model village programme was launched in January 2013
in the sugar belt of Jawaharpur and Ramgarh. With focus
on alternate cooking systems (bio-gas and smokeless
chullas), low cost toilets, solar street lights, improved
school infrastructure and a Jan Suvidha Kendra
(information Centre). Participatory rural appraisal was
conducted in villages to get an in-depth understanding of
the village resulting in better programme implementation.
It helped us identify the needs of the people on the basis
of which our model village programme stands.
