CBRE CARES - EK PEHAL


The CBRE group runs a global corporate responsibility program under the banner of CBRE Cares, which is aligned with CBRE Foundation, a non-profit, public benefit corporation that supports the group’s philanthropic initiatives. CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd., through the India-edition of CBRE Cares has pledged its efforts to address the health and nutrition related concerns of Indian migrant construction workers & their families (especially women and children) living in and around the various construction sites.

At CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd. we believe that every life has an equal right to a good quality of living. Today, millions of migrant workers and their families are building our modern spaces but are themselves surrounded by poor housing conditions, poverty, illness and despair; and are fighting a daily battle for their survival. Our mission is to give them a chance to lift themselves out of this cycle of despair.

The first edition of CBRE Cares in India – “Ek Pehal” is a small beginning to improving lives of those with the greatest needs. As part of this initiative, it is intended that a “Social Mobility Unit” (SMU) will visit slums/jhuggis/labour colonies around the various construction sites and offer health & nutrition, basic education and awareness on sanitation practices and other services as per need identified to the migrant workers and their families. This “Social Mobility Unit” (SMU) is essentially a team of dedicated social workers, doctors, counsellors, mobilizers, etc. aimed at improving the health and well-being of children, adolescents and women living in and around these construction sites.

Looking for partnerships:
CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd. under its flagship program - Ek Pehal, is inviting proposals for the on-boarding of implementing partners to showcase their capability and realize the national goals of the program. The RFP and application templates can be found below:
