Dr Priti Adani, Chairperson of the Adani Foundation, has a great inclination towards providing education to underprivileged sections of the society. An avid philosopher and philanthropist, it is her vision that has led to the transformational schooling initiatives taken by the Foundation.
In order to expand the reach of education across the country, Adani Foundation inaugurated a CBSE school by the name of Adani Vidya Mandir as well as a vocational training centre called Kaushal Vikas Kendra in Chattisgarh.
The school, Adani Vidya Mandir, focuses on imparting high quality education to students from tribal communities. Presently, it offers CBSE curriculum to students until the 10th standard along with giving them access to free of cost uniforms, conveyance, food, and study material.
The Foundation has also seen an encouraging number of girls enrolled at the school. The school aims to educate as many girls as possible as it is part of the Foundation’s vision to empower girls in the society. The Foundation aims to bring about a silent revolution in the country and make way for positive change in the future.
In the Foundation’s objective of educating children from rural areas, schooling and professional skills go hand in hand, which is what led to the formation of Kaushal Vikas Kendra. The vocational training centre will provide the tribal youth, whether it be girls or boys with industry skills, with a wide range of trades such as electrical, hospitality, mining skill with simulator, sewing machine operation (tailoring) and more. These children also have access to a hostel facility complete with a lush green complex, encompassing cafeteria and recreation facilities. These facilities are first-of-its-kind in the state of Chhattisgarh.
The initiatives of launching Adani Vidya Mandir and Kaushal Vikas Kendra make way for paramount futuristic development while creating a healthy learning environment for children who would have had a blurry future if not for the training they would receive at the school and vocational training centre. Today, one can hope to see future entrepreneurs from the small town of Surguja.
