Support to Government Schools

Navodaya Vidyalaya

 

Adani Foundation strongly believes that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided with opportunities to proceed at a faster pace, by making good quality education available to them, irrespective of their capacity to pay for it. The Navodaya Vidyalaya is a unique experiment in the annals of school education in India and elsewhere. Its significance lies in the selection of talented rural children as the target group and the attempt to provide them with quality education comparable to the best in a residential school system. Hence, the prime objective of Adani Foundation in supporting the children of Navodaya School at Tiroda, Maharashtra has always been focusing on facilitating quality modern education to the talented children predominantly from the rural areas, regardless of their family’s socio economic conditions and ensuring that all potential students get quality education through coaching.

Project Udaan

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.

Adani Vidya Mandirs

Replicating the successful Adani Vidya Mandir (AVM) school model, AVM Surguja was established in 2013. AVM-S provides facilities for the overall physical, mental and intellectual development of the students. All academic and non-academic facilities are provided free of cost to the students. In the current academic year, the student strength is 561.

Adani Vidya Mandirs

Adani Vidya Mandir, a unique Gujarati medium school was started in June 2012 at Bhadreshwar village of Mundra in Gujarat. The objective is to provide free education to children of fisher-folk community and economically challenged families. The Foundation provides nutritious food to the pupils including breakfast, lunch and snacks every day. Special care is taken towards high quality education and overall development of the children. The children are groomed to go back to their families and communities and be the agents of change.

 

In the current academic year, Adani Vidya Mandir has become a school providing education from 1st to 10th standard, with a total strength of 387 students. Remedial classes are also organised at the school which is additional coaching for newly enrolled students to help them cope up with new syllabus. 

 

In all the AVMs, evaluation for the students’ performance are  conducted at regular intervals based on the following parameters :  Ability of understanding, interest area, writing, cleanliness, extra-curricular activities, reading ability, subject-wise performance, attendance, creative ability, team work ability and leadership ability.  Regular training, workshops and presentation sessions are organized for capacity building of the teachers as well.

Swachhagraha

Swachhagraha has been launched by Adani Act in association with CEE as knowledge partner, during April 2016.

 

Swachhagraha is inspired by one of the largest mass movements - 'Satyagraha' that changed the fate of the country. Satyagraha catalysed action, by winning over people's hearts through tremendous patience and perseverance, instilling in the Indian mind, dignity and self-respect. It was a freedom movement of the people, by the people and for the people. Mahatma Gandhi, who conceptualized Satyagraha, was a staunch believer of the importance of sanitation and cleanliness of surroundings in day to day life. He once said, "If we do not keep our backyards clean our Swaraj will have a foul stench." 

 

The Project draws inspiration from Satyagraha movement in terms of engaging people and bringing about change similar in scale to India's freedom movement where people get involved to take action for 'creating a culture of cleanliness'. With a quest to fight against filth and cure the litterbug in all of us, Swachhagraha also takes the Swaccha Bharat Abhiyaan a step further and aims to ensure that India remains litter free beyond 2019 and forever. It is a movement of achieving and maintaining the state of Cleanliness in form of a culture and not a one-time activity.
