CORPORATE SOCIAL OBLIGATION

Decades before Corporate Social Obligation (CSO) 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 2.5 million people, living in over 4,171 villages, spread across 9 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 –

  • Transforming Agriculture
  • Promoting Rural Industries
  • Boosting income through livestock development
  • Livelihood security through Skill and Enterprise Building
  • Women empowerment through financial inclusion and Self-Help Groups
  • Enhancing learning through providing Quality Education
  • Providing Quality Health services in remote areas
  • Infrastructure development and Natural Resource Management

With over 30 years of intense experience in some of the most backward and remote villages, LHWRF has demonstrated a successful mode of CSO practice and district development that is scalable and sustainable.
