Lupin CSR Policy
Annual Report 2017


Decades before Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) became mandatory, we were amongst the first corporates to take concrete steps towards ensuring that the benefits of economic progress and of scientific and social development reach rural India. The Lupin Human Welfare & Research Foundation (LHWRF) was founded in 1988.

We aim to transform rural India by creating sustainable and replicable programs around economic, social and infrastructure development targeted at uplifting the poorest of the poor residing in remote villages of India.

Our Founder & Chairman, Dr. Desh Bandhu Gupta has always believed that an individual is indebted to Society for his or her growth. It was this guiding inner voice that led to the formation of LHWRF. We have chosen to work in the poorest of villages, in the most dire circumstances – and our activities have been backed by human development indicators.

Over the years, we have expanded our outreach and added scale to ensure growth and progress for rural communities across the country. The Foundation reaches out to 2.8 million people, living in over 3,463 villages located in 59 blocks, spread across 8 states in India. We operate through 18 hubs in Rajasthan (Alwar, Dholpur and Bharatpur), Maharashtra (Nagpur, Tarapur, Aurangabad, Dhule, Nandurbar, Pune and Sindhudurg), Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal and Dhar), Uttarakhand (Rishikesh), Goa (Dhargal), Gujarat (Dabhasa and Ankleshwar), Jammu and Kashmir (Jammu) and Andhra Pradesh (Vizag).

The key focus areas of LHWRF programs are –

  • Agriculture development
  • Promoting livestock development
  • Skill development
  • Rural Industries promotion
  • Women empowerment
  • Providing Quality Health Services in remote areas
  • Innovative Education interventions
  • Infrastructure development and Natural Resource Management

As Lupin marches into its 50th year, LHWRF’s journey has just begun and we are steadfast in our mission to ensure that growth and true progress reaches everyone. Our aim is to set sail on a remarkable journey of discovery and transformation, building a brighter and happier tomorrow. A journey towards new horizons.
