Project Description

The importance of education for social growth and upliftment is undisputable and for Vedanta this is a very important pillar of its work with communities. Our various education and childcare initiatives have reached over 145,000 children.

Vedanta’s Nand Ghar ‘anganwadis’ have been designed to support the Indian Government’s Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS), a flagship programme for child and maternal health.

These rural child-health centres provide a community social hub and access to services that every young child needs. They provide early years education, nutritious food, safe play areas and television for interactive learning, and are equipped with rooftop solar panels for 24x7 electricity, water purifiers and clean lavatories.

Healthcare services are also delivered by a visiting mobile health van, and importantly the centres also give local women access to a range of opportunities to learn new skills. During FY2019, Vedanta opened its 500th centre, at Chaksu Block in Jaipur, and to date there are 502 operational Nand Ghars across Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, transforming the anganwadi landscape of India. The initiative is delivering impact at scale, with more than 17,000 children receiving pre-school learning with advanced teaching methods, and over 11,000 enjoying nutritious meals every day.
