Project “Utthan” empowers students by enhancing their learning abilities and fostering better academic success. This ambitious initiative involves adopting government primary schools, providing individualized support for high-potential learners (Priya Vidyarthis), tackling dropout rates, and fostering collaboration to upgrade teachers' skills. Through engaging teachers and parents, the project bolsters foundational literacy and numeracy skills among students. Together, under the umbrella of "Utthan," over 12,000 children across 60 Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) schools have been impacted.

In Mumbai and Dahanu, the "Swabhimaan" project is empowering women from underprivileged communities. This project aims to elevate the lives of women by equipping them with valuable skills, financial literacy, and access to microloans. Ultimately, "Swabhimaan" strives to cultivate self-sufficiency and economic empowerment within these women, enabling them to actively contribute to the prosperity of their families and communities. The project has been implemented in two phases, the first focusing on honing skills and the second on financial knowledge and micro-credit. Currently, approximately 4,000 women are actively involved in "Swabhimaan" within the Adani Electricity distribution area.
