Dabur’s community outreach initiatives have been developed keeping in mind the specific needs of the communities where it operates. The company has been organising health camps in various villages across the country; running non-formal education centres for underprivileged children; operating livelihood training centres to empower rural women, besides building toilets in rural India to protect the dignity of women. Dabur India Ltd had recently announced its decision to adopt 5 villages in the state of Uttar Pradesh and make them ‘open-defecation free’ within the current 2015-16 fiscal. Under this initiative, the company will ensure that all households in these five villages have toilets. Besides, the 20-odd schools in these villages would also get separate toilets blocks for boys and girls. In addition, the company has identified five other villages in Uttar Pradesh, besides 6 villages in Uttarakhand and two in Himachal Pradesh for construction of household toilets.
