CFM and Pipavav Railway Corporation Ltd. (PRCL) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in December, 2016 to construct a Community Centre in the village of Raska in Limbdi, Surendranagar, Gujarat under their Corporate Social Responsibility mandate and CFM to undertake the execution of the project. The Community Centre will become the epicentre of social activities and agriculture information dissemination at Raska Village, Limbdi.

The Community Centre will be the venue of local events, which may include meetings with villagers on government policies, health and water sanitation, to interactive sessions with ANM, Anganwadi workers, PRCL representatives and community leaders.

It will also provide an ideal venue for street plays and visual shows on Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Gram Yojana (PMAGY) and Swachh Bharat Mission. School teachers and children may also use this space for debates and painting programmes based on UNICEF’s WASH and PMAGY schemes. The Raska Gram Panchayat as well as other nearby Gram Panchayats may also further utilise this Centre for training and educating farmers to ensure that information and services are accessed by the community at the village level.

Work is already in full swing at Raska. The Community Hall is expected to be ready within the next 2-3 months.
