Clean drinking water is a fundamental right of every kid, and AquaKraft is dedicated to making it a reality. AquaKraft Projects Pvt. Ltd. was given a mandate by Lok Shikhshan Sanchanalay, Madhya Pradesh, to establish Clean Drinking Water Systems in 50 specified schools, which will be supported through CSR. AquaKraft did a complete baseline evaluation of the requirement based on this mandate and successfully solicited CSR from Hyundai Motor India Foundation. As a result, AquaKraft’s School Drinking Water Purifiers were placed in 50 government schools across 7 districts in Madhya Pradesh State, benefiting over 30000 children as well as over 3000 teaching and non-teaching personnel.
This has been dubbed a landmark project since it will have a direct impact on the health, attendance, and well-being of children on this scale. The Hyundai Motor India Foundation (HMIF), the philanthropic arm of Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL), developed this campaign under Hyundai’s CSV philosophy of ‘CONTINUE’ and the ‘Safe Drinking Water for a Better Future’ project.

Mr. Puneet Anand, AVP & Vertical Head – Corporate Affairs, Hyundai Motor India Ltd., commented on the ‘Safe Drinking Water for a Better Future’ initiative, saying, “In line with Hyundai’s global CSV (Creating Shared Values) philosophy of ‘CONTINUE,’ HMIF has been giving back to society through initiatives under the CSV core pillars of ‘Earth,’ ‘Mobility,’ and ‘Hope.” The program ‘Safe Drinking Water for a Better Future’ is a crucial step toward a healthier future. Our mission is to ensuring that the basic need for safe and clean drinking water for school-age pupils is satisfied throughout the state of Madhya Pradesh.

Students and faculty at the school were asked to sign a pledge to preserve water and reduce waste. The vow was enthusiastically accepted by the students and instructors present.
