About the Founder
Chairman, Mr. Anil Agarwal

Anil Agarwal is the Founder and Chairman of Vedanta, one of the largest and diversified natural resources groups globally. Born in the state of Bihar in India, Anil Agarwal did not let his humble beginnings limit his achievements. At the age of 19, he left his small town for Mumbai, India's commercial capital, with only a tiffin box, bedding, and dreams in his eyes. He wished to start his own company but could barely make ends meet. For the next 10 years, he tried his luck with nine different businesses but all of them failed. However, he did not give up. He founded the Vedanta Group in 1976 and has over 45 years of entrepreneurial & business experience.

A committed philanthropist, he believes that businesses must give back to society and help them prosper. He has pledged 75% of his wealth for social impact. He has signed The Giving Pledge, a movement of global philanthropists who have committed to give away the majority of their wealth to causes related to social impact. Anil Agarwal is committed to promoting the well-being of the communities with a particular focus on women and child development. His dream project, Nand Ghar, is developing model anganwadis across India that are focused on eradicating child malnutrition, providing education, healthcare, and empowering women with skill development.

Our Work
The Nand Ghars are modernized Anganwadis built with cutting-edge technology. Designed to be child friendly, they offer round-the-clock electricity powered by solar & grid connection. Additionally, they are outfitted with LED televisions, tablets, water purifiers, smart kits, attractive furniture, and sanitation facilities.
The Nand Ghar project is designed to elevate and enrich the Anganwadi experience for children, women, and the entire community. With nutrition initiatives, education facilitated by televisions and tabs, health interventions through telemedicine and MHV, women empowerment and animal welfare, Nand Ghars have become an indispensable resource for the local communities.

Our Verticals:

As part of its nutrition initiative, Nand Ghar initiated a pilot project aimed at providing multi-millet nutri bars to nearly 50,000 children daily aged 3 to 6 years for a period of 6 months. These bars, manufactured by Troo Good and endorsed by Nutrihub, ICAR-IIMR (Indian Institute of Millets Research), play a pivotal role in eradicating malnutrition and boosting attendance at Nand Ghars.
Nand Ghar extends health services right at the doorstep through Mobile Health Vans and telemedicine. By conducting regular health camps and offering access to digital healthcare, communities gain access to specialized care from the best doctors available.
Our aim is to enhance pre-primary education through interactive learning methods. Utilizing BaLA designs and pre-loaded content on TV and smart kits, as well as tablets, along with capacity-building sessions, these innovative approaches are special learning features at Nand Ghars.
Women empowerment
Nand Ghar is committed to providing women empowerment opportunities. It facilitates scheme linkage activities and skill training while also providing access to income generating avenues such as job work, placements, market linkage, etc.
