Aavishkaar Foundation

When faced with the most calamitous challenge the world has seen in recent decades, the Group felt duty-bound to support in tackling some of the most critical issues that the pandemic presented in India.

Aavishkaar Foundation’s Grant Facility for Humane Action was set up on the 24th of March, 2020, just days after an extremely strict lockdown was announced in India. The grant facility’s objectives were to meet the urgent needs of feeding out-of-work migrant and daily-wage laborers, and supporting front line workers with PPE and medical equipment in remote parts of the country. Within the first three months of its inception, the Aavishkaar Foundation aggregated a sum of ₹ 2.25 crores (~$ 2,92,000) to respond to the COVID crisis.
