Key Initiatives of the Foundation

Training and Skill Building

Enabling the development of latent skills can help build a “virtuous circle” — the quality and relevance of education and training fuels innovation investment, technological change, enterprise development, economic diversification and competitiveness. Emerging economies can, in turn, leverage this synergy to accelerate the process of employment

To build skill sets across our intended target groups - adolescents, women, and marginalized construction workers among others - the Everest Foundation initiated skills training in computers, sewing and roof installation across various locations in order to directly benefit more than 3000 people.

Health, Hygiene, and Sanitation

Public Healthcare in India is still in a state of flux. Rural areas continue to look for effective ways to make healthcare facilities available to vulnerable populations. To that end between 2015-18 we initiated a Tobacco Control Program, and a public sanitation program as well as individual sanitation program. The foundation has also organised several blood donation camps.

Tobacco-Free

Partnered with Salaam Mumbai Foundation to make one block of Nasik, Dindori (including schools) completely tobacco-free

Sports Promotion

More than 85 percent of school children in India have no access to sports due to a lack of adequate facilities. Less than 10 percent of the population under 35 years of age has access to organized sports. An equally small percentage of youth have access to playgrounds.

The Everest Foundation seeks to provide a platform for rural youth and children where they can demonstrate their sporting capabilities, and acquire skills that can help them live a healthy and progressive life. To facilitate this, we organize various local and community-level sporting events and training programs at our plant locations.
