Cummins believes that an organization is only as healthy as the communities where it does business. An innate sense of responsibility, backed by the belief that businesses flourish only when they are rooted in a society which is healthy, orderly, just and which grants freedom and scope to individuals and their lawful enterprises, is what keeps Cummins committed to making the lives of people better. This is through holistic, self-sustainable and replicable programs bringing about long-lasting changes and development.
Going beyond mere financial assistance, this commitment manifests itself in combining Cummins’ expertise with the experience of local non-profit organizations, to positively impact the communities where Cummins has a presence. This implies a broader level of involvement: engaging in dialogue around problems; building coalitions around solutions; and finding resources and skills to build the capability of the communities.
