~ To reduce water scarcity and transform lives of villagers ~
Mumbai, August 25, 2018:Mahindra Logistics Ltd. (MLL), one of India's largest 3PL solution providers has set-up a water project at Tembha (Thakurpada), a hamlet near Shahapur as part of its CSR initiative. Shahapur, the largest taluka in Thane district, faces severe water shortage during the summer season. Towards easing the situation and improving lives of residents, Mahindra Logistics has adopted the village and is conducting various developmental initiatives including infrastructure development, education, health and vocational guidance amongst others.
As part of the project, Mahindra Logistics has set-up pipeline to the nearest water source and will pump the water. This water will thereafter be collected in tanks having 20,000-liter capacity that has been installed in the village. The initiative will benefit around 75 (85) families and shall be a permanent solution to the current water woes.
Mr. Pirojshaw Sarkari, CEO, Mahindra Logistics, said, "At Mahindra Logistics, we strongly believe in giving back to the society. With an earnest desire to uplift communities, we adopted Tembha, about a year back. Through humanitarian, environmental and educational initiatives, we endeavour to transform the lives of villagers in a positive manner. The water project is one such step towards this transformation."
Ms. Reshma Amle, Sarpanch, Tembha Village, said, "We are grateful to Mahindra Logistics as they have been helping us to improve the social, educational and medical infrastructure in our village. It is the feeling of independence and a dream coming true for us. We had to walk 2-3 kilometer, every single day of our lives, to fetch just one bucket of water. This project will certainly benefit us tremendously. Our village looks forward to continued support from Mahindra Logistics in the years ahead."
