Corporate Social Responsibility
Neighborhood Projects are identified by plant management in Bosch India plants, as per their local society needs.
Nashik Run is the biggest community run in India with 20,000 people in participation every year. Nashik Run was organised by Bosch and other corporates in 2003 to bring about a change in the lives of the economically backward, by raising funds for their livelihood in the district, which had witnessed an increase in the number of underprivileged at the grass roots level. Projects the event funds include shelters for the aged, women, orphans, providing training for the intellectually challenged, visually impaired and also, skilling the less capable.
Check Dams are being constructed to reduce velocity of water thereby reducing erosion. This is a neighborhood Bosch CSR project initiated by Nashik Plant management. Already 7 Check Dams are operational.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) Plants
Initiated by the Jaipur Plant, RO plants provide clean and safe drinking water to the villagers. Built and maintained by Bosch, so far, 8 RO plants have been built that benefit 4,000 families.
Mid-Day Meals Kitchen
Bosch has agreed to sponsor the construction of a centralized mid-day meal Kitchen, which will be based in Jigani at Anekal Taluk, Karnataka. The kitchen, to be built on Cauldron technology, aims to provide mid-day meals to 15,000 children (to be extended up to 30,000 children) in Bidadi as well as in schools situated around Anekal Taluk. For many children, who would have to work for a square meal every day, the food from this Kitchen will come as a boon not only because they can satiate their hunger but also because they get an opportunity to access education.
