BMW India Foundation implements ‘WATER FOR FUTURE’ project which is envisioned to create permanent and sustainable sources of fresh water suitable for a range of human consumption needs through basic processing.
Under this initiative, the Foundation has created rain water harvesting structures in 19 rural schools in rural areas of Haryana having very high ground salinity and water supply issues. As a result of this initiative, around 6500 students now get very clean drinking water round the year, which is leading to higher enrolment and retention in these school and is expected to contribute in yielding better academic results.
Also, a water body rejuvenation has been successfully carried out in Nuh district to re-infuse capacity and multi-usability in otherwise neglected and filthy water body.
BMW India Foundation is also augmenting underground water near BMW Plant Chennai by capturing run-off rainwater in the plant vicinity through 10 injection bore wells. This will create fresh water reserves for future in this region.
