Programs

Atul Foundation was created to bring all activities related to serving society under one umbrella. The Foundation undertakes projects | activities, broadly under six Programs: Education, Empowerment, Health, Relief, Infrastructure and Conservation. While these Programs are currently focused in India, it will be the endeavour of Atul to establish such organisations in the countries in which it operates so as to serve society in such countries. Ultimately, what comes from the society must go back to it many times over.

During 2019-20, Atul Foundation undertook the following projects:
