Initiatives of the Sekisui Chemical GroupInstalling Water Pumps at Indian Villages with Safe Drinking Water Issues
Our Indian business unit, SEKISUI DLJM MOLDING PRIVATE LTD (DLJM), contributes to society primarily in three areas: health, education, and daily life. In fiscal year 2017, DLJM installed water pumps in two villages located close to its business sites. Access to safe drinking water is difficult in these villages.
This initiative initially involved conducting multiple surveys of nearby villages and then determining where water pumps needs to be installed to help as many people as possible with drinking water issues by applying a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis. In addition, DLJM's COO took the initiative in speaking with numerous social workers to determine which villages needed water pumps, resulting in the decision to install a total of four water pumps at the villages of Fazailpur and Chandrawal. Each pump is capable of supplying around 500 people with drinking water.
Prior to installation, DLJM made an effort to communicate with every resident of both villages about optimal locations to install these pumps. DLJM did its utmost to reflect the feedback of villagers who actually use water pumps, by emphasizing the opinions of women who use them most frequently to carry out household chores and having villagers determine for themselves the final pump locations. Since installation, DLJM has continued to engage with villagers while maintaining the pumps.
