Extending support towards social and rural development, DLF Foundation reconstructed a school called ‘Bada School’ in Bada village and the road in Mewka Village, Gurugram which has brought relief to the locals of the area.
Over the years, CSR Foundations have been actively engaging in elderly care. DLF Foundation considers it as one of its primary initiatives and has been working towards organizing recreational activities to enable senior citizens to lead a quality life. Through their Senior Citizen Center, it encouraged senior citizens to participate in various creative and interesting activities like yoga classes, spiritual sessions, picnics and food festivals which helped them to stay enthusiastic and lively.
