Following the footsteps of our legendary Founder Kasturbhai Lalbhai, Atul Foundation is committed to work for sustainable development and uplifting the lives of underprivileged people.

Atul Rural Development Fund was established in 1978 as the implementing agency to introduce rural development programs in the vicinity of Atul. At present, we are reaching through our four institutions; three schools and a vocational training institution. We are also serving the community through various developmental projects to make a difference in their lives. Over the years, we can see the change in the community and people we work with. We are happy to be a part of this journey.
