Mawana Social Services

Social Face of Mawana Sugars

The Shriram Group has been involved with community ad social services in the country. Many social and educational institutions could emerge due to pioneering work of the Shriram Group. Continuing this legacy, Mawana Sugars Ltd commenced a series of social development programs in villages in UP. We believe that a social interface with the community is a continuous process and is essential for a long term relationship where we contribute to each others growth and well being.

Mawana Social Services (MSS) was established as a department 3 years ago with the objective of bringing about sustained development in the villages.

The vision of Mawana Social Services is "Working with communities universally to realize their potential by providing inputs and opportunities for socio-economic development and improvement through education, entrepreneurship, health, social harmony and growth"

Community Development Programmes:

Under Community Development Programmes, MSS has initiated the following activities:

  1. Khabar Ghar programmeKhabar Ghar programme:
    Our flagship programme is the Khabar Ghar programme, set up with an objective of making information available to the rural community by making newspapers, magazines and books available to them in their villages. Khabar Ghars are reading rooms, provided by the villagers themselves, where the people can come and read. The magazines and books cater to men, women, youth and children. 50 Khabar Ghars have been set up in the villages.
  2. Urdu ClassesUrdu Classes: "Urdu" -
    A word which is synonymous with beautiful linguistic expression which symbolizes expression from the heart and has been a part of the spirit of India. However, the language seems to be losing its usage if not the classical charm. Hence Urdu Classes were set up with the objective of providing facilities for students to learn Urdu, to increase the appreciation of the language.
  3. Non-formal EducationNon-formal Education:
    The women in the villages often feel handicapped due to their inability to read or do simple calculations in their day to day work like making the grocery list, catching a bus, adding their expenses and so on . Therefore an initiative was taken to teach women basic numeracy and to read and write small sentences through our programme called Non-Formal Education. The programme is aimed at women and drop-out girls. Preference is given to girls and women to become teachers.
  4. v-liabraryVillage Library:
    Imagine children studying without even the basic text books! That is the reality of many villages where we work. A Library has been established to make text books and reference books available to the children.
  5. waterfilterPotable Water:
    One of the key areas of work of MSS is Promotion of Health through Clean Drinking Water, particularly in the rural areas. MSS has started a pilot initiative on providing clean drinking water in a village called Aad in Nanglamal. The entire village comprising about 400 households has been provided CrystalPur Water Filters, free of cost, to be used by the families. Moreover all the workers in our three sugar plants of Mawana Sugars, who reside in the villages, have also been provided the filters to be used at homes. Monthly MIS is being collected from the users of these 1000 households for monitoring the efficacy of the filters and improvement in health.
