CAF India has been a trusted partner since 2003. CAF India has not only helped us in our disaster and emergency responses including disaster rehabilitation, they have also helped us forge community partnerships for sustainable water resources. The professional team at CAF India helps us understand community needs, plan right partnerships, select good grassroot NGOs who can deliver time bound results and in a transparent manner. Several Community Rain Water Harvesting projects that we have undertaken with CAF India in Rajasthan, Haryana and UP have shaped well and have immensely benefited all stakeholders. Our relationship with CAF India has evolved much beyond only community interventions, they have helped us review our journey on sustainability, build capacity for CSR within the organisation and forge meaningful partnerships. We are proud of our partnerships with CAF India.

"The success of our bottling business is inextricably linked to the sustainability of the communities in which we operate. Water conservation and environment management today requires a participative and collaborative approach. Each stakeholder in the society must contribute to the best of his ability for sustainability of the Earth's resources. Over 400 rain water harvesting structures across the country is a testimony of our commitment to be a good steward of water and it will grow in coming years. Our partnership with CAF India at Delwara in Rajasthan and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh is an example of various stake holders joining hands to work in the area of water sustainability. It has been a very meaningful partnership and we look forward to work with CAF India even more closely".
