The Adit Jain Foundation focuses on empowering through education. Our emphasis is on inclusive education, life skills development and a conscious approach towards sustainable livelihood. Currently, our foundation is providing financial support to several thousand children directly as well as through channel partners and institutions. As we move ahead we will focus more on collaborating with local schools, charitable societies and other institutions working in the domain of education in order to expand the scale of our activities.

At AJF we believe, the nicest thing we can do is to give back to society by helping those less privileged than us. It also brings with it a unique sense of contentment only possible in the caring of others. Here are some of the intitutions and organisations we currently support:
The Kanha Workers Welfare Society (KWS), Kanha National Park, Madhya Pradesh: The KWS is a non-profit society formed by the employees of the Kanha Tiger Reserve approximately 1,150 in number. Children of KWS members study in schools located in the vicinity of the Park and struggle to meet education expenses apart from having to deal with hardships associated with basic issues such as daily transportation to and from school. The Foundation provides financial aid to help the KWS defray expenses such as school fees; purchase of school bags and uniforms; cash rewards to high performing students; establishment of a library; provision of computer coaching; and provision of vocational education to students that have completed school.
