In 2011, when we did a needs-assessment to understand the area of focus for CSR, we realized that education as a tool needed to be sharpened – especially for children and adolescents. Through Anandi, we want to go beyond CSR and lay the foundation for best practices and models in education that can be replicated nationally. This award has motivated us greatly to work towards the cause and I would like to thank IndiaCSR and our team who have been a huge support in tirelessly bringing Anandi to where it is today”.
