The well-being of people living in rural areas ensures sustainable development. The Infosys Foundation works with local administration to achieve community development goals. We construct roads, provide drainage systems and electricity, and rehabilitate flood-affected victims in rural areas. The Foundation has donated more than INR 40 crore for rural development and livelihood projects such as awareness campaigns on hygiene, sanitation, vocational training and entrepreneurship.
Bringing to light: Mental healthcare
A shortage of doctors and the rising cost of medication have left many mentally ill patients deprived of the required treatment. The Chittaprakasha Charitable Trust provides residential rehabilitation centers for the mentally affected who are homeless. Infosys Foundation has helped in the construction of a 7,500 sq. ft. building at Chittadhama.
Helping the ones who deserve it the most
The poorest part of a country is often the most neglected. The Ramakrishna Mission has set up a school in Aalo, an inaccessible and backward tribal area in the West Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh. The center is more than a brick-and-mortar school and is a kind of umbrella organization that includes 16 non-formal schools, coaching centers, a dairy, a bakery unit, a small farming facility, a dispensary, and a printing press. It also provides transportation for students to and from their villages.
Higher standards of education for the underprivileged
Agastya Foundation, the brainchild of a group of scientists, educators, and executives, instils creativity and encourages the imbibing of scientific knowledge among its students. Agastya and Infosys Foundation have together created higher standards of education for the country’s underprivileged by providing them with training workshops, mobile labs, and a hands-on educational methodology.
