Our Story

We have the vision to evolve sustainable approaches for prevention and mitigation of salinity ingress while enhancing the livelihood resilience of communities affected by salinity in coastal villages of Gujarat.

Since 2008, Coastal Salinity Prevention Cell (CSPC) has worked for the upliftment of rural communities through multiple social development programmes aimed at addressing drinking water, sanitation, agriculture- land development, natural resource management, health, and education. The organization draws its history from the initiative launched “Kharash Vistarotthan Yojana (KVY)” by Tata trusts Aga Khan Rural Support Programme India, and other partners in the year 2002. After that, CSPC took it to the next step where the team had joined as a partner organization to the state government to explore and evolve in various development areas of the region. Currently, the organization is a joint initiative of Aga Khan Rural Support program India (AKRSPI), Ambuja Cement Foundation (ACF) and TATA Trusts with an ongoing field program based on the following themes,

  • Livelihood
  • WaSH- Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene,
  • Education and Skill Building
