At the heart of our mission lies ADHAAR, a program dedicated to spreading quality education to the last mile children of the community. Through our ADHAAR CENTER in rural as well as urban India, we provide free tuition classes and scholarship support to the students to break the economic, social and infrastructure hurdles between a curious child and learning for a better future. Children of grade 1 to 12 are covered under this program. Children under the program get routine health care, career guidance, and personality development sessions. Children are exposed to various physical and mental activities to harness the power of the human mind and body. Since its inception, more than 800 children have benefited from this program, with 120 children currently actively studying at our ADHAAR CENTER. Our ADHAAR CENTERs are becoming more education friendly, technologically evolved, resourceful, and cheerful with time.

Clean and healthy environment is the primary requisite for a productive, sustainable and wealthy society. In our pursuit of a clean and healthy environment, we undertake active participation in efforts but not limited to tree plantation drives, vertical gardens development, and biodiversity survey and conservation. We also work to rejuvenate water bodies through our pond revival programs, water quality testing and improvement in rural and urban areas. We are open to collaboration with government, industries, institutions and individuals to clean water bodies including big rivers like Ganga river and Yamuna river, small ponds of villages; to reduce air pollution, to spread awareness about noise through community engagement and sustainable methods.
Disposal and management of the waste are a growing problem of the urban and suburban towns. It is also penetrating in the villages and causing menace. VAIMALYA program focuses on cleanliness and waste management models with the promise of litter free India inspired by Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan of Government of India. We work with municipalities, village panchayats and local organizations to implement location specific and sustainable waste management models for effective disposal of waste. We follow the principles of zero waste and circular economy not only to manage the waste but also create opportunities for the communities. We actively participate and collaborate to spread awareness on understanding the concept of waste, waste generation source, different waste segregation methods, waste to products practices and many more. We work with local sanitary staff including both formal and informal and make their work efficient and healthy by awareness, capacity building and providing appropriate tools. We install plastic waste banks in collaboration with agencies and communities to proper collection, segregation and disposal of plastic waste. Our Plastic Café initiative rewards users for submitting plastic bottles at the plastic waste bank which discourage the habit of littering.
