Narayan Bhargava Foundation (NBF), in association with Vidya Niketan Educational Trust, founded Kalpana Chawla Space Academy (KCSA) as a Nation Building mission. KCSA is a first-of-its-kind institution offering space and science-centred education to children, aimed at creating next-generation space scientists for India.
NBF sponsored the 21st AAROHI – an annual musical event which started in 2002. The platform gives opportunity to young singing talents from the world of performing arts. The festival was a humungous success and gave the audience a glimpse into the rising stars of Indian classical music.
The 6th National Conference on Disability, Accessibility, Inclusion and Wellbeing was supported by the Narayan Bhargava Group and organized by the I-Access Rights Mission from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS). The Field Action Project enables accessibility and inclusion of differently-abled students in higher education.
The NBF team envisions education as the key enabler of growth, transformation and true change in society. Keeping up with the vision, relevant books and other resources were shared with a school in Balwadi Zila Parishad, located near Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. 25+ primary kids were impacted.
NBF believes in empowering the hearing impaired and non-speaking people by offering them employment. Helen Keller was a unique training program where an expert was invited to teach sign language to corporate heads, colleagues and team members, enabling better communication and opening up growth opportunities.
Seva Foundation is a Non-Profit charitable organization, focused on helping underprivileged people with eyesight problems and transforming their lives in different parts of the world. Narayan Bhargava Foundation, as part of its mission, provides monetary support to the eye care organization.
Empowering the youth through education is an integral part of NBF’s plan for a better society and a strong nation. In sync with this goal, NBF has helped many economically weaker students to complete their higher studies comfortably.
In underdeveloped urban areas, NBF is putting efforts for maintaining basic infrastructure and keeping them clean. The Modern Village Program includes development initiatives such as the construction of suitable roads and clean restrooms.
The Any Time Napkin vending machine is being aggressively installed by the NBF team. This exercise aims to encourage women, especially the adolescent girls of Waru-Bramhnoli village, to practise good menstrual hygiene. Additionally, this makes a significant contribution to the Swachh Bharat Mission's success.
The word "plantation" seems overly corny, but it is the only way to build a better future. NBF frequently organises mass plantation activities. Additionally, the group works to improve society through programmes in the areas of infrastructure, jobs, sports, and the environment (Go Green).
Access to clean water is key to becoming healthy. However, many schools across rural areas don’t have access to clean water and sanitation, making children more vulnerable to malnutrition and waterborne illnesses. To tackle these issues, our water projects include constructing and rehabilitating clean water systems such as hand pumps, open-faced wells, latrines and hand washing stations. We also provide educational workshops to inform people of all ages on how to stay healthy with clean water. As a result, parents are encouraged to send their children to school, and children stay in school.
When families have financial means, they can invest in the future of their children through education and their basic health. To empower community members, we work with adults—mostly mothers—to teach them the skills they need to become independent within an average of five years. We specifically work with marginalized families and provide them with capacity-building workshops and productive resources for income-generating activities. As a result, they can apply their skills to improve their income, build their savings, provide for their families and become self-sufficient.
In addition, Mr. Narayan Bhargava is pleased to adopt five villages in Maharashtra through the Narayan Bhargava Foundation: Waru- Bramhmoli, Kardhe, Yalse, Mahagaon, Malvandi Thule.
