Project Description

Udaan is a project inspired by the life-changing story of Mr.  Gautam Adani, the Chairman of the Adani Group. As a kid, Mr. Adani had visited the Kandla port, Gujarat and after looking at the expanse of the port, he dreamt of having his own port one day. The rest is history.

Udaan is a learning based initiative focused on the youth coming from various schools/colleges across the state of Gujarat. Under this project, an exposure tour is organized wherein students are given a chance to visit the Adani Port, Adani Power & Adani Wilmar facilities at the Mundra site, to get an insight into the large scale business activities carried out there. The major objective behind organizing such trips is to encourage young minds to develop an interest in all sorts of enterprises, and to encourage them to dream big in life. Adani Foundation believes that young students when given exposure; it helps them understand their own potential and get motivated to work towards the same. Till date, the Project Udaan in Gujarat has reached out to around 1.5 Lacs students covering 1600 schools/colleges.

Project Udaan was launched on the eve of Teachers Day on 5th Sept’ 2014, at Tiroda, Maharashtra. Project Udaan, in the state, is organized for students from 10th and 12th std. It is a one day field trip (Exposure visit) to Adani Power Maharashtra Limited Tiroda. Adani Foundation takes students to Adani Power Unit at Tiroda where students get exposure of technical knowledge about power generation, environment, rural development, safety management functions, various kinds of machines and its role in power generation. Visiting Adani Power plant help students to enhance their concepts regarding practical aspects of operation in coal fired Power Production. The objective of Project Udaan is to give inspiration to the student by disseminating information about various sources in power production and motivate them to think actively about their careers. During 2014-15, a total of 19 visits have been conducted for 883 students and teachers from 10 High Schools.
