Natural Disasters are not under human being’s control and it impact local communities drastically. It’s high time for everyone including corporate companies to dedicate their attention towards projects for Disaster Risk Reduction. We all should focus towards CSR projects for Rural Development and Disaster Management.
SEED is India’s leading integrated CSR consulting, planning and implementing agency with an absolute authority in strategizing and implementing the Corporate Social Responsibility and Financial inclusion projects across India. We have collaborated with many top brands to implement CSR for rural development and disaster reduction. We keep organizing various camps in coastal areas to educate villagers about things to do in case of any natural calamity. We even organize mock drills for them. A big example of the same is our project for rural development in SUVA village of Gujarat.
SEED and TechnipFMC which is a global leader in subsea, onshore/ offshore and surface projects, have together taken an important initiative towards this serious issue, with aim to bring a big positive change towards Disaster Risk Reduction. We have recently initiated a CSR project in a small village of Gujrat. This village is located in the ‘Vagra’ Taluka of ‘Bharuch’ district in Gujarat. ‘SUVA’ is a Gram Panchayat with an area of 1238 hectares and a population of 1920 as per 2011 Census. Its post office name is ‘Dahej’ and nearest town ‘Bharuch’ is about 33 kms away. This is a coastal area and so prone to natural disaster.
The project “TechnipFMC Sustainable Model Village” is a program focusing towards sustainable rural economy which generates and maintains necessary resources to improve quality of life in rural areas. This project is a combination of community as well as livelihood development activities, which are adopting holistic development approach to create “Technip India Sustainable Model Village” with vibrant and economically sustainable rural community. The deliverables and outcomes of the project are tangible and measurable.
Major components of this project included Quality Healthcare, Quality Education (Edu-Child), Women Empowerment and Disaster Management.
While under Disaster Management hundreds of kits were distributed to Village Disaster Management Committee (VMDC) and Village Development Committee (VDC) members. Gram Panchayat and SEED team distributed these kits under TechnipFMC employee engagement program. This kit included radio, first aid box, flash light with extra batteries, power banks and Swiss army knife.
SEED implemented a full-scale integrated village development program comprising four fundamental areas namely, Education Infrastructure, Healthcare, Disaster Management and Financial Management.
