The Development Of Sarkhej Roza-Facilitated by Ahmedabad Community Foundation, 2001 onwards.
ACF has been working to revive and restore Sarkhej Roza back to the city of Ahmedabad since 2001. Besides striving towards bringing Sarkhej Roza back into public memory, ACF has been involved in advocating for easier access and better amenities for the monument; Restoring and facilitating the cultural practises and festivals historically associated with the Roza.
The Sarkhej Roza Crafts and Womens’ Collective is an effort to create livelihoods for the people living around the monument of Sarkhej Roza with a focus of connecting their lives to the monument. The Sarkhej Roza Crafts & Women’s Collective is facilitated by ACF.
As an addition to the efforts by AUDA to improve access and infrastructure, ACF undertook massive tree plantations. These were held for consecutive years in the monsoon season. The opportunities provided by these events were used to involve the community living nearby the monument to feel part of the development.
