Currently, Project Nanhi Kali supports over 57,000 students. Apart from the objective of impacting the nation's development through education of the girl child, Anand Mahindra also wanted to encourage Indians to ’give back’ in a focused manner. Hence Project Nanhi Kali was designed as a sponsorship support programme which allows individuals to participate and support the education of a girl child in India. The project provides academic, material and social support that allows a girl child to access quality education, attend school with dignity and reduces the chances of her dropping out.

     

 

Project Nanhi Kali is working with 19 NGO implementation partners at the grassroot level to ensure that the Nanhi Kalis receive academic, material support and social support. The K.C. Mahindra Education Trust regularly monitors the NGOs by giving technical inputs wherever required to ensure that quality education is being imparted to all the Nanhi Kalis. The Mahindra Group sponsors the education of 11,000 girl children through Project Nanhi Kali.
