The Foundation has identified the need to focus on early childhood programs for 2 - 6 year olds. As part of our initiatives to support education, we help develop learning places for young children living in large urban slum clusters so that it creates a strong foundation and inculcates social and cultural awareness in them.
The Foundation focuses on quality education for the underprivileged children (with a special focus on the girl child) - we support projects that strengthen the existing educational system. In other words, remedial education or supplementary classes are provided to children studying mainly in government / municipal schools. The support classes will not only enable the children to perform better but also ensure that they remain in school and do not drop out due to bad performance.

The youth can and should be instrumental in bringing about a social change and be assets to the development of their communities. Unemployment afflicts the underprivileged youth because majority of them are not only semiliterate or undereducated but also posses no vocational ability i.e. technical / business skills for self-employment.
As part of our corporate social responsibility initiative, the Foundation has been supporting various projects to impart vocational training to the underprivileged youth and make them productive members of the society.
