With this initiative, K Raheja Corp has come forward to create a more equitable environment, through a phase–wise plan to revamp the Lake. With the endeavour to provide the Hi-Tech City a meaningful waterfront environment, this development is conceived as value addition to the lake and its surroundings along with the social uplift and urban rejuvenation.

It has been created keeping in mind the objectives as under:

  1. To create a working and active waterfront development
  2. To ensure the existing fabric of the area is unaltered

Worker Welfare

Medical care facilities and a mobile crèche with requisite facilities are provided at all construction sites for the workers. The education of workers’ kids along with their health, sanitation and a meal, are all taken care of by the K Raheja Corp.

Worker Welfare

K Raheja Corp, in their constant endeavour to enhance the lives of people, has collaborated with Mumbai Mobile Creches (MMC) to run three day care centres at the Group’s construction sites in Airoli, Juinagar, and Chandivali. MMC is a 45-year-old not for profit that runs a day care centre at the construction sites to provide a secure and healthy environment to the children of site-workers. MMC also encourages parents to enroll their children in school for education. To support this noble cause, K Raheja Corp has been supporting MMC by providing infrastructure as well as the operation cost for all three centres. This initiative benefits around 150 students and their parents.
This cause has exposed the children of the site-workers to a plethora of opportunities enabling them to be on par with the privileged. Moreover, MMC has enabled house-wives to step out and take jobs and support their families without worrying about leaving their children in an unsecure environment. To further ease the mothers’ apprehensions, K Raheja Corp has ensured that the center is built adjacent to the construction site so they can visit their children or breastfeed the infants.
The Mumbai Mobile Creches project has been well appreciated by the parents and their offspring as well as the site supervisors who can see a perceptible change in the workers’ productivity owing to the increased contentment of being close to their children.
