The Nand Ghar Project reaches milestone of 3000 mark
Nand Ghar Project – By leveraging technology, upgrading to state-of-the-art infrastructure, capacity building of front-line functionaries, and digital real-time monitoring, Vedanta is bridging the urban-rural divide with Nand Ghar, making significant improvements in the overall service delivery of the Anganwadi ecosystem.
“Project Nand Ghar is the closest to my heart,” Anil Agarwal, Founder & Chairman, Vedanta Group, said on this occasion. It brings me great satisfaction to watch Nand Ghar reach 3000 members throughout 12 Indian states, making a substantial impact at the grassroots, and strengthening our nation’s foundation of rural women and children. With this significant achievement, we are moving closer to accomplishing the objective of the Hon’ble Prime Minister of eradicating malnutrition, providing healthcare, education, and skill development for rural women, and making this a critical project for social development.”
Nand Ghars provided the last mile delivery of services to recipients in the final 20 months of the pandemic, repurposing itself to have a stronger impact. Nand Ghar adapted its service delivery strategy in response to the shift in daily activities. As education moved away from the classroom and toward home-based learning, Nand Ghar quickly implemented alternate learning tools such as WhatsApp and IVRS to ensure ongoing learning. During the epidemic, Nand Ghar ensured that its recipients had Dry and Take-Home food delivered to their homes.

In addition, more than 3300 nutrition gardens have been established around the Nand Ghar premises and communal areas to guarantee that the community’s nutritional needs are met on a consistent basis. During the pandemic, Nand Ghar created local jobs by teaching women how to sew masks and prepare other necessities, boosting their household income by Rs. 4000.
Healthcare became a top focus as a result of the pandemic. Nand Ghar implemented an integrated healthcare model that included Mobile Health Vans, Telemedicine facilities, and paramedics on wheels for preventive and curative care, including consultations with MBBS/Specialist doctors, dispensing medicines, and conducting non-invasive tests, all of which were provided free of charge.
The Anil Agarwal Foundation has partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help achieve UN Sustainable Development Goal 2, which aims to eliminate all kinds of hunger and malnutrition by 2030. Last year, the Anil Agarwal Foundation unveiled a five-year social economic development agenda worth Rs. 5000 crore.
