Vedanta has always found its purpose in giving back to society by making a good impact on people’s lives through healthcare, education, skill development, and livelihood, which is strongly ingrained in the company’s ethos of supporting the development of the communities in which it operates. We have set a target of creating 25,000 Nand Ghars in Rajasthan over the next few years with the objective of transforming the lives of women and children through the project Nand Ghar.

Our programmes will need to be strengthened, improved, and innovated in order to meet future demands.
