DP world In­dia bagged an award un­der the CSR ex­cel­lence of the Year Cat­e­gory for be­ing one of the most so­cially re­spon­si­ble and im­pact­ful or­gan­i­sa­tions for un­der­tak­ing a lot of ac­tiv­i­ties to ben­e­fit com­mu­ni­ties at large. The jury was im­pressed es­pe­cially with the DP world's wide range of so­cially re­spon­si­ble ac­tiv­i­ties be­ing of­fered to the needy and also for its ef­forts to build the sus­tain­able so­ci­eties and com­mu­ni­ties. One of the ma­jor pro­grammes un­der­taken is re­build­ing de­prived so­ci­eties. DP Wold has been con­sis­tently work­ing to­wards build­ing con­fi­dence in them, pro­vid­ing liveli­hood op­por­tu­ni­ties and en­sur­ing they have ac­cess to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and health­care fa­cil­i­ties. About 1600 women re­sid­ing in slums were given train­ing in skill de­vel­op­ment. Of them, about 400 trainees were suc­cess­fully placed in dif­fer­ent jobs and about 800 of them are able to eke their liveli­hood. In ad­di­tion, about 500 women were trained by the In­dus­trial Train­ing In­sti­tute in Bhuj and are now able to sus­tain them­selves. On the health front, about 22,000 vil­lagers in Mun­dra were pro­vided with ba­sic health fa­cil­i­ties and were treated for com­mon dis­eases by the med­i­cal van that trav­els to vil­lages to cater to their health needs. About 6,000 vil­lagers in Raigad district were also treated. In as­so­ci­a­tion with the Mun­dra In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sci­ences, DP World has trans­formed the health­care land­scape of this town. DP World be­lieves that com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment is key to a sus­tain­able fu­ture. In keep­ing with the so­cial de­vel­op­ment goals, their pro­grammes are de­signed to ad­dress the needs of peo­ple keep­ing in mind the fu­ture of the so­ci­ety and the coun­try. The Mun­dra In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sci­ence man­aged by DP World has trans­formed the land­scape of health­care in Mun­dra taluka, treat­ing 7280 out pa­tients dur­ing the eval­u­a­tion pe­riod. The in-pa­tient de­part­ment has fa­cil­i­tated 871 pa­tients with qual­ity health­care ser­vices.
