Shrimant Fatehsinhrao Gaekwad Hospital
We revived this under-performing hospital in Vatrak, Gujarat, since associating with it in 2007. Prior to our assistance, it had only 70 beds, building infrastructure was in a mess, and the hospital management was facing an acute financial crisis. Apart from financial assistance, we have also assisted in the hospital’s management. Currently the number of beds in the hospital has increased to 312. A new ICU centre, along with four new operation theatres have also been established.

We have assisted with the creation of infrastructure at the centre. Currently, the centre includes a pathology laboratory and an x-ray machine as part of its facilities.
Equipping Women to Become Agents of Change
Empowering women and achieving gender equality is crucial for creating inclusive and prosperous societies. AIL contributes towards this endeavour by promoting and creating opportunities for women and girls to enhance their skills and confidence. Our initiatives to empower women have enabled them to achieve their potential and exercise greater influence over decisions that affect their lives. Apart from providing interest-free loans to women for earning their livelihood, AIL is assisting NGOs in conducting various programmes directed at skill development, training and tailoring.
As a part of our efforts towards drought relief, we are conducting courses in our training centre for women empowerment. We are running training workshops on stitching, weaving and crafts for about 128 women in Pimpalner, Marathawada, Maharashtra. Our training centre has helped them during their crisis.
Interest-free Loan for Entrepreneurs
We have given interest-free loans to 40 local women from the Nahar community in tribal regions of Madhya Pradesh with the help of Karuna Society, a local NGO. Most residents are engaged in the business of Bhilva herbal products for their livelihood and these loans have empowered the community.

We have also participated in relief and rehabilitation efforts after earthquakes in Kutch, Indonesia and Nepal.
During the drought, we provided help to affected people in Kutch district of Gujarat and Beed district of Maharashtra. We have also provided fodder for animals in various areas.
Helping in the Fight Against COVID-19
Rising to the Challenge
As the world responds to the COVID-19 outbreak, our thoughts are with those affected and the medical professionals who are working round the clock to help those in need. At AIL, we believe that our ability to stay grounded and remain true to our identity as a responsible corporate citizen is tested during such times of disruption. Since the past four-and-a-half decades, Aarti Group of Companies has been at the forefront in providing urgent support and relief during natural disasters and calamities in the country. This time too, we have adopted the first-responder mindset across the company to ensure the safety of our employees and are striving to protect the health and well-being of the communities in which we operate.
