Adani Group employees adopt education of 704 children of migrant labourers
In a first of its kind move, employees of the Adani Group have adopted all the students of the Vallabh Vidyalaya school in Mundra in their Employee Volunteering Programme (EVP). All the 704 children in the school are from families of migrant labourers working in various industries in and around Mundra. Children from migrant labourer families in addition to resource constraints at home also bear the disadvantage of unfamiliarity with local language and culture inhibiting participation in school. Vallabh Vidyalaya bypasses the language barrier as the medium of instruction is in Hindi and mostly the kids are from Hindi speaking families.
