Recently concluded two day CSR Conclave - 2017 at Ahmedabad was an astounding success, where all team members of Adani Foundation from all locations got together to learn from each other's experiences and also gain from the wisdom shared by eminent domain experts from respective fields.
Bridging the gap, empowering communities, educating youth, ushering gender equality, addressing natural catastrophes, we have truly implemented our philosophy of 'continuous action' and 'silent revolution' in every respect.
While our team worked tirelessly to bring relief and help to the flood affected victims in one arena, our schools continued to produce some of the finest talent in another. From facilitating productive agriculture, to creating state-of-the-art medical centers and generating income augmentation opportunities, we have been unstoppable in our drive and journey to create empowered communities and enlightened individuals.
As we take a look at some of our community development and social transformation initiatives in the recent past, I take this moment to thank each one of you for your persistence, perseverance and passion towards Adani Foundation and our innate drive towards making communities rise and finding sustainable, replicable and transparent solutions for the progress and development of our nation.

Adani Foundation, the CSR wing of the Infrastructure Conglomerate-Adani Group was established in 1996, as a tribute to the ideals upheld by Late Shri Shantilal and Shrimati Shantaba Adani. Imbibing the philosophy of Karmanye Vaadhikaraste, Adani Foundation symbolizes the values of courage, trust and commitment. Touching more than 4,00,000 plus families, Adani Foundation acts passionately in four core areas - Education; Community Health; Sustainable Livelihood Development and Rural Infrastructure Development, encompassing 11 States, 20 Sites, 1,470 villages & towns across the nation.
Paving its way towards fulfilling the much aspired dream of nation building, Adani Foundation acts to provide free of cost quality education to meritorious children from lesser privileged section of the society via its flagship, Adani Vidya Mandir. Having a total strength of 1600 students, the Adani Vidya Mandir is operational at Ahmedabad & Bhadreshwar in Gujarat and Surguja in Chhattisgarh. Further, the Foundation also extends support to 543 government aided schools across the nation and has 4 subsidized schools catering to 2000 students. A special educational aid has until now supported 1300 bright minds of the nation as well. Apart from the mainstream programs in Education, the Foundation runs “Project Udaan” wherein a free of cost exposure and motivational tour is organized every day for school students to make them visit Adani Group’s business sites and get motivated by the magnanimity of Adani Port & Power and Adani Wilmar facilities. Till now, the project has covered 1.35 Lac students across Gujarat. The Udaan project has also started at Kawai (Rajasthan), Tiroda (Maharashtra) & Dhamra (Odisha).
Adani Foundation believes in an overall and inclusive development of a nation. Hence, "health" becomes a pivotal area for Adani Foundation to act on. Bringing healthcare at the threshold of every household in the remotest of regions, Adani Foundation has seven Mobile Health Care Units (MHCUs) across the nation which attends to 15,000 patients per month and 1.6 Lac people a year on an average; besides, thirteen Rural Clinics at Mundra and Sainj caters to 67,000 patients every year. With an objective of providing affordable and accessible health care to all, Adani Foundation via its G.K. General Hospital and Adani Hospital at Mundra gives free of cost quality health services to around 2,00,000 patients a year. Innovative schemes like Senior Citizen Health Cards Scheme are functional in 60 villages wherein services worth more than Rs. 200 Lacs are extended to 13000 people a year through OPD/IPD at Adani Hospital. Above and beyond, medical camps and programs like Anaemia Reduction Program; Kidney Stone Awareness Programme etc. are organized frequently by the Foundation at regular intervals across locations.
Adani Foundation takes equal efforts towards bringing parity in the society by honing the skill sets of its members and generating sustainable income generating options for them. The Foundation has empowered around 1500 youths through Adani Skill Development Centre and other training initiatives within a span of a year. During the same tenure, there are 550 women as well who have been benefited through skill development trainings. The income generating activities of the Foundation has impacted 600 persons and their families directly. Through the cow based economy programme around 950 people are at present earning an average of Rs 1500/- every month and introduction of bio-gas and LPG subsidies amongst the rural households in villages has helped them save around 18000 quintals of wood every year. Further, special training programmes on implementation of methods like Systematic Rice Intensification (SRI) have supported a total of 1370 farmers by reducing their rice cultivation cost by 33% and increasing the production by 51%.
Taking forward a holistic step towards improving the lives of people across locations, Adani Foundation acts whole heartedly towards developing rural infrastructure as well. Apart from the regular support to schools and public utility infrastructures like construction of approach roads, potable drinking water facility, installation of solar street lights etc., Adani Foundation has worked extensively for creating better living standard for the fisher-folk communities at Mundra, Gujarat. Apart from providing them dwelling units they have also been given the provisions of toilet facilities at their bandars. Working towards water conservation activities, we have taken up activities pertaining to deepening of ponds in water scarce regions across locations. A total of 97 ponds have been deepened resulting in 83.24 lac kilo litre of water storage. More so, there are 23 Check-Dams constructed and 25 mil. cubic feet water recharged. As far as Sanitation is concerned, Adani Foundation has aided 26 villages in getting 100% household toilet coverage and with partial financial support from WASMO, the Foundation has also implemented rural underground drainage system of 81 kilometres covering 16 villages at Mundra.
