Rural Development and Empowerment

The foundation continues to play an active role in helping farmers in the water-deficient Parli district of Maharashtra to improve their annual incomes. Apart from direct employment of 100+ employees, we have also created indirect employment at various levels through new nurseries being established, new dealers to buy produce, labour at the farms, and processing units which currently are being set up around the clusters where we also have undertaken plantations.

Apart from the above, we carried out a water management project for rainwater harvesting in the Parli village. We also support the Global Vikas Trust which is working with horticulture and plantation projects in the Parli village as well.

Along with 'ManavSeva Mandal', we helped the Central Chinmaya Mission Trust to construct a pond for rainwater harvesting to provide drinking water and maintain sufficient groundwater levels.

Lastly, we have created infrastructure to facilitate drinking water at the Govali village in Gujarat, which resulted in a fully Automatic RO Plant generating around 24.000 to 30.000 litres of water daily.

Sports and Women Empowerment

Borosil has partnered with the Indian Olympic Association as the Indian 'Hydration Partner' for Tokyo 2021, Paris 2024 and beyond. We fund the JSW Foundation which provides sport facilities comparable to some of the best-in-class facilities globally. We promote sports activities/projects, training and mentoring of India’s young and established athletes across five disciplines; 

  • Athletics
  • Boxing
  • Judo
  • Swimming
  • Wrestling

We also support women athletes who strive to win medals at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 through financial sponsorships at the Inspire Institute of Sports in Vijaynagar, Karnataka. We support additional initiatives on women empowerment through the Edelgive Foundation. 

Health

The Borosil Foundation is supporting the Indian Cancer Society by helping them spread awareness about the ease of cancer testing. They provide free foods for cancer patients and to Tata Memorial Hospital towards Medical Aid for initiation & treatment expenses of various patients.

Recently, Cancer Awareness AVs (films) in multiple languages were developed. These have been played in hundreds of ICS awareness camps from July 2019 - March 2020 across 2600 cinemas and on OTT platform having reached more than a 100 million.

We also helped the Ankleshwar Industrial Development Society A/c Smt. Jayaben Modi Hospital for Cancer Radiation Centre with the latest technology radiation machine.

We support the Society of Rehabilitation of Crippled (for Cancer), who help people suffering from cancer and those who survived it and needs to get going back into their life with mainstream society.

In collaboration with SevaYagnaSamiti in Bharuch, Borosil supports the Civil Hospital with nutritional requirements (milk) of their patients.

Moreover, the Borosil Foundation supports the Bombay Medical Aid
Foundation through their Scholarship Fund, and we also provide financial aid to the 'Shroff PunamchandDevchand Rotary Diagnostic Centre' which helps poor people in an early diagnosis of severe diseases.

We are also happy contributors to 'The Akshaya Patra Foundation', which is a public and private partnership implementing the Government of India’s Mid-day meal Programme.

Lastly, we are supporting the Swami DungjiMaharaj Charitable Trust which provides food for poor people in need.

Education

On education, the Borosil Foundation supports the education of the poorest strata of society through Friends of Tribals Society.
The company has set up and run a CBSE school (CKG Highschool) in the Govali village. 

We contribute to the Gram Vikas Trust for the 'VidyasaathiProject', and we have contributed to the establishment of 'Shroff SR Rotary Institute of Chemical Technology' in Bharuch.

We helped DadooMaheshwari School in Kolkata to get computers, fans, tables and chairs at their school, so that children can sit comfortably in the school and get educated with the computer. The computer education makes them ready to learn digital competencies for the future.

Lastly, we constructed several classrooms in Balekhan, Govindgarh, and Jaipur, and co-financed solar PV and toilet installations in several rural schools.
