The project Village development started in 2015. We are developing 100 villages under 5 major indicators - Water harvesting, livelihood, health, education and Internal roads covering 5 districts from Maharashtra - Satara, Pune, Kolhapur, Ahmednagar and Solapur and 29 Talukas. The work done has improved the quality of life of rural community through higher family income, employment / entrepreneurship opportunities for local youth, farming opportunities to the villagers who never cultivated their land in generations together, and reversed migration.
Under Health indicator - Cancer screening camp and awareness sessions were organized for more than 3000 women from 26 villages from Taluka Koregaon & Ambegaon at District Satara & Pune receptively in association with NGO - Samvedana. The cases for further investigation were referred to nearby Sahyadri Hospital.
Under health awareness sessions on No tobacco were imparted by Bharat Forge employees to 4000 students from 8 government schools to make them aware about the ill effects of health due to it.
We have planted around 34000+ trees since 2015 with 90% survival. These trees are maintained by the villagers and community representatives and have set up composter planters in 70+ households at Keshavnagar.
