Over the years, MMF has undertaken a wide array of initiatives and forged partnerships with various organizations to drive gradual change. More than 12,700 people have been supported with water conservation projects in and around Maharashtra and engaged in activities such as restoring and constructing cement nala bunds, installing water pumps, laying pipelines for remote access, and promoting initiatives like rainwater harvesting, river rejuvenation, and desilting water bodies. MMF has made significant strides in ensuring access to clean drinking water for thousands of families across multiple regions in India. In Khdakwasala, in Pune, the de-silting has been undertaken of a 2 km dam, benefiting over 15 lakh people in both the city and rural areas. In Piludra, Gujarat, the drinking water supply scheme has positively impacted 300 households. Furthermore, water tankers have been supplied to 500 families in three villages in Ratnagiri.

Additionally, extensive tree plantation drives to foster environmental protection are being conducted. MMF has achieved significant transformations in regions grappling with water scarcity. By deepening reservoirs, increasing water levels, and reviving old rivers and lakes, we have made a meaningful impact.

MMF is actively planting trees in Pune, Ratnagiri, Satara, Masar, and Rajasthan to combat soil erosion and mitigate the effects of global warming. So far 23000 trees have been planted. The premises of Mukul Madhav Vidyalaya (MMV) have been equipped with solar systems, rainwater harvesting facilities, and planted more than 336 trees and counting over the last 5 years. The school also boasts vegetable patches and a garbage management system aimed at producing compost fertilizer for its garden.

These initiatives aim to make a significant difference by offering vital support to communities and improving water availability for agricultural and daily needs.
