Medinipur/Kolkata: Dalmia Bharat Foundation (DBF), the CSR arm of Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd. (DCBL), recently inaugurated the Godapiasal Football Ground in West Bengal’s Medinipur.
The initiative ensures that the community will benefit from the infrastructural development and tremendous opportunities for youth interested in pursuing competitive sports such as Football, Cricket etc.
Around 1000 youth from the surrounding areas including school students will benefit from DCBL’s initiative. Godapiasal, Stationpara, Mangalmari, Guraipatna, Soula, Nutanbasti and Kulapachuria are some of the surrounding villages which will be directly impacted by this.
Ambuj Srivastava, Unit Head, DCBL, Medinipur, said, “At Dalmia Cement Bharat, we are committed to our social responsibilities and the shared purpose that this creates. In keeping with this objective, we will continue to connect with our surrounding communities by engaging with youth to teach them life skills and enable them to improve their overall quality of life for social improvement and empowerment.”
Ambuj Srivastava said, “Through our recently inaugurated Godapaisal football stadium we have, once again, solidified our pledge to foster development and progress through a sports culture. We are confident that this endeavour will positively empower our talented youth athletes across communities.”
DCBL’s singular initiative to develop the stadium took three years (2018-2021) until completion. Through its continuous efforts, DCBL hopes to reignite the region’s sporting spirit as a result of its significant contribution.
