We have built our development programs in the form of initiatives with a broad focus mainly on Education, Nutrition & Livelihood. We have further identified the potential areas within each of our broad development priorities and have dawned on focused interventions in concern areas such as basic education among the school children, child nutrition, essential vocational training such as computer literacy, women empowerment & most critical among all being employment to jobless youth among others which happen to be National concerns of the country and furthermore a part of the country’s agenda for its Millennium Development Goal.


We have weaved all our development programs with a major thrust on Employment generation for creating a sustainable development model.



To achieve inclusive growth by providing support through focused programs with high potential for social development.


To empower and educate the underprivileged section of the society by enhancing their basic skills set and facilitate them to join the mainstream.


The Foundation incorporates tested delivery models across its planned interventions to engage the targeted population with the support of its nation wide team of committed and dedicated workforce which fuels the process of the planned development impact.

Scalability & Sustainability of the intervention forms the crux of the Foundations social development plan. Like minded Partnerships and stakeholder engagement shape the social development execution plan of the Foundation. Governments, Corporate, Civil society, Cross section Communities are among our partnered stakeholders. We believe that the combined efforts of the cohort partnerships and stakeholder engagement shall provide the required impetus for achieving an enduring sustainable social development impact.

The fact that the development program needs to reach out to and transform a mass population, motivates the Foundation to fuel its efforts. To ensure the transformation of a mass population, we have outlined clear goals in terms of beneficiaries for each of our interventions supplemented by strong impact evaluation systems as a part of our operational framework. We measure the social impact our development programs have made from time to time.


Vedanta Foundation has been a catalyst in transforming lives of the marginalized population of the country through its focused efforts weaved in its social development programs which have been detailed separately.
