On the occasion of Children’s Day, Vedanta Group Chairman, Anil Agarwal emphasised the importance of education and the overall development of a child. In the wake of the pandemic which unprecedentedly sabotaged the learning experience of crores of children across the nation, Vedanta was quick to deploy alternative learning methods ensuring that no child lost on their education. Over the years, Vedanta has built many impactful social development programs in India and is considered one of the most socially responsible corporates in the country.
Speaking of early childhood care, Anil Agarwal Foundation under its flagship social initiative, Project Nand Ghar in partnership with the Ministry of Women & Child Development has been providing e-learning content through WhatsApp & IVRS; supplementary nutrition in the form of dry take-home rations to its beneficiaries along with the telemedicine helpline throughout the pandemic. Today, more than 2700 Nand Ghars in 12 states across India are reaching out to more than one lakh children.
On the occasion, Anil Agarwal said, “A good education & a nourishing diet are essential for children to have a productive future. On Children’s Day, let us pledge to support the efforts being made by the govt. Our Nand Ghar initiative is impacting over lakh children & reimagining the Anganwadi network across India”
