Leading with Purpose
Our Corporate Social Responsibility in India
The Mosaic Company is the world’s leading producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash, two essential crop nutrients. Driven by our mission to help the world grow the food it needs, Mosaic is committed to working toward improved global food security and protecting critical water resources.
In India, Mosaic and implementing partner the Sehgal Foundation manage the Krishi Jyoti Project, or “enlightened agriculture,” in the districts of Mewat Haryana and Alwar Rajasthan.
‘Krish Jyoti’ brings to life Mosaic’s mission of helping the world grow the food it needs. Launched in 2008-09, Krishi Jyoti contributes to community in agriculture, water management & education; it has made a remarkable difference around 45,000 farmer and over 3200 students.
Krishi Jyoti Interventions
Agricultural Development: With the help of balanced crop nutrition, agronomic expertise and financial support, farmers increased yields by as much as 35 % over traditional farming practices. In total, Krishi Jyoti has directly benefited more than 22,000 farmers, cultivated nearly 15,000 acres of land, and reached 60 villages.
Water Management: The Mosaic Villages Project funded the construction of four new check dams in Mewat & Alwar. The check dams assist with capturing and storing rainwater, which is then funneled into the underground aquifer, recharging groundwater levels and pushing back salinity so that water can be consumed and used for irrigation. Together, the check dams have directly and indirectly benefitted more than 30,000 people, and have a total reservoir capacity of more than 14 million gallons.
Education (School Renovation): Mosaic funded school renovations for 16 schools in Alwar and Mewat in Haryana and Rajasthan—including adding sanitation facilities (separate for boys and girls), safe drinking water systems, and a school kitchen. Over 3,200 students have benefited, and the Government Middle School got the awards related to the improvements.
