As a responsible corporate citizen, responsive to the needs of the community around is our objective. Government of United Kingdom had, in 1975, granted an aid of Rs.40 lakhs under the Colombo Plan for overall development of villages in developing countries.
Several villages were surveyed and finally Sanganakal village of Bellary district and Herur village of Raichur district were selected for overall up-liftment of the poor farmers of these villages with marginal land holdings. For this, a trust was formed under the name UK-MCF-TGB-GRAMA VIKAS PROJECT. The primary objectives of the trust are to sustain and enhance agricultural productivity and help farmers diversify into allied activities like dairy, poultry, silk rearing, etc.
Certain agencies committed to rural development, The University of Agricultural Sciences, Department of agriculture and Tungabhadra Grameena Bank, have actively co-operated with MCF in meeting the social objectives of the Trust.
The activities of the Trust over the years has included rural education in health care, setting up reading rooms, empowering women, providing drinking water, conservation of energy, donating critical equipment to rural hospitals, furniture to rural schools, construction of community centers and rural hostels and training villagers in subsidiary occupations.
