Strengthening our commitment towards building a healthier society and positively impacting the lives of people in marginalised communities, Nestlé India launched Project ‘Vriddhi’, an initiative towards village adoption in collaboration with SM Sehgal Foundation. The project is aimed at improving the livelihoods of people in Nuh district, Haryana, for bringing a positive change in the lives of the locals.
The project focuses on improving access to clean drinking water for communities, promoting water saving irrigation practices, increasing awareness on nutrition, enhancing farm productivity and providing healthy learning environment in schools by improving hygiene and sanitation practices. The project team is working towards the village slowly evolving to a level of sustainability and continue the developmental progress even without direct participation in the day to day affairs of local community.
Since its launch in 2019, Project Vriddhi has touched the lives of over 6,000 beneficiaries across 5 villages.
