Wardha district in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra is where our developmental interventions are organised. Jamnalalji Bajaj adopted this district for Gandhiji’s social and economic development programmes. The Vidarbha region is infamous for farmers’ suicides. Today, Bajaj Foundation is working towards introducing the people of Wardha to sustainable agriculture and better livelihood opportunities to improve the quality of their lives through a participatory approach.
Sikar district of Rajasthan, where our community development interventions are also organised, is known as the ‘Door to the Thar Desert’ and experiences extremes in climate, with an arid summer and intensely cold winters. The situation is alarming due to the high groundwater extraction level, and most of the blocks have been declared as ‘dark zones’. Jamnalalji Bajaj was born in Kashi-Ka-Bas, a village in Sikar district. He dedicated his entire life to the nation and society. Bajaj Foundation is working towards sustainable development interventions to develop natural resources, sustainable agriculture, and better livelihood opportunities.
We have also organised our community development interventions in Lalitpur district of Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh. This district has been selected as part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities of the Bajaj Group-promoted Lalitpur Power Generation Company Ltd. The team from Bajaj Foundation has been implementing various need-based community development interventions – focusing on water resources development, sustainable agriculture practices, and infrastructure development – to strengthen livelihoods of rural people.
