CSR - Nanhi Kali

Anand Mahindra founded Project Nanhi Kali in 1996 with the driving belief that educating the girl child has a tremendous positive impact on not only the individual, but on the nation too. With a presence in nine states in India, more than half of our centers are located in remote, rural and tribal areas, where girls education continues to be a social taboo. So far Project Nanhi Kali has impacted more than 100,000 girls.
