All CSR activities undertaken by CUMI are rooted in the principle, “towards prosperity in harmony with people and planet”. We believe that social responsibility is not just a corporate obligation that has to be carried out, rather an opportunity to make a difference. All our CSR programmes are aimed at Inclusive growth and sustainable development of the community.
Each initiatives we undertake has the support of well-organized and scientific background study. Need Assessment Study of the targeted community is carried out based on which we formulate appropriate community intervention programs. Apart from the analysis of collected quantitative data, a qualitative analysis has also been done which included focus group discussions, interactions with key persons in the community and observational visits.
Our community development projects are based on the principle “of the people, by the people and for the people”. The projects are implemented and supervised by a steering committee consisting of the representatives from the community as well.
