MUMBAI: Galaxy Surfactants Ltd one of the leading specialty chemical companies in India has given a new lease of life to the Adivasi tribes residing in Palghar District of Maharashtra.
Galaxy Surfactants under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program Vatavaran Suraksha & Samajeek Utthaan, helped in the reconstruction and desilting of check-dam in Kelichapada, Jawhar of Palghar District and also in the rejuvenation of wells at Rajewadi village of the same district.
Due to the lack of water storage facilities, villagers from Jawahar were deprived of basic amenities like proper drinking water which forced them to migrate.
These initiatives will now help the residents to get water for drinking as well as for farming and household usage.
One of the core objectives of Galaxy Surfactants Limited is to become a water positive company. This objective is being achieved through water conservation projects in their day to day operations and also their CSR activities.
Last year, the Galaxy made a check dam in Kharonda village which transformed the lives of 530 families and over 2500 people.
Recently, Galaxy Surfactants also helped flood-affected people of Kolhapur and Sangli. As part of its ‘Aapda Rahat’ Corporate Social Responsibility program, Galaxy Surfactants Limited extended flood-relief aid to 1,000 families in the districts of Sangli in the form of Food Items and Household and Hygiene Items.
Under their CSR Project, Galaxy has undertaken various water harvesting & restoration initiatives for the benefit of the community at large.
They have been working towards reducing their water footprint through projects involving innovative practices like recharging of bore wells, construction of KFP structures and restoration of lakes.
