DCM Shriram Foundation About Us

About Us


| A philanthropic arm of DCM Shriram Ltd

Supporting sustainable development, DCM Shriram Foundation is driving social impact initiatives for the benefit of its communities.

The philanthropic legacy of DCM Shriram Foundation stems from Sir Shri Ram (1884-1963), founder of DCM group. The Samaritan industrialist worked for the good of the society straight from the heart and DCM Shriram too, following his footsteps remains committed to inclusive growth.

The CSR interventions, under the DCM Shriram Foundation umbrella, are implemented seamlessly, taking an integrated approach for holistic development. As part of DCM Shriram Foundation’s strategy and vision going forward, we aspire to have a deeper impact on people we engage with by making the communities more resilient and self-confident. Our focus is on two aspects: addressing community needs through all-round development for a measurable improvement in quality of life and promoting economic empowerment of farmers in India with emphasis on water conservation. We believe that the nature of DCM Shriram Foundation’s vision provides social mobility to communities we support, and brings about a permanent improvement in their wellbeing.

The core of the work being on creating impact on the lives of people, the focus areas are livelihood, healthcare, sanitation, environment and education. The primary focus of the interventions is on communities around its manufacturing units in the geographies of Hardoi & Lakhimpur districts of UP, Kota district in Rajasthan and Bharuch district in Gujarat.

Voices from the ground

“Where there is water, there is everything. Now, the animals have water. The women don’t have to walk for kilometers to fill their pots and household needs. Earlier, we had to go to small wells to fetch water for our livestock. It was a difficult exercise as we had to carry 10-15 water pots. It will also help us with farming and make the soil fertile,” says farmer Jagdish from Mohanpura village, Kota district.
