The Aditya Birla Group's CSR division supports our Aadhya program in Chhattisgarh. The program seeks to implement an adapted version of the AAA platform, called the AAM (ANM - Anganwadi Worker - Mitanin) platform to foster improved data usage and sharing for better identification and service of beneficiaries - pregnant women, lactating mothers and children.
Bajaj Auto’s CSR division partnered with us for our Aayushi program, in Sikar District’s Dhod Block. The program aimed to reduce under-five child mortality by implementing our model of bringing in innovative, low-cost, scalable innovations to healthcare in partnership with the government system.
Bajaj Auto has undertaken various philanthropic activities and social work through its corporate and non-corporate entities, besides providing financial support to such causes. Bajaj plays a prominent role in such activities through its range of community development endeavours. Bajaj’s CSR areas include education, health, women empowerment, self-reliance, rural development, and environment & natural resources. Our journey together has been productive and enriching and we look forward to a healthier Dhod.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has been supporting The Antara Foundation since 2020 in expanding its maternal and child health program in Madhya Pradesh across two districts. Through the grant, Antara Foundation is scaling its innovations further (e.g., the AAA platform, nurse mentoring and facilities enhancement), as well as piloting new interventions (e.g., solutions to create active, aware and empowered communities) with the aim to significantly reduce child mortality and malnutrition levels across the state.
BMGF is guided by the belief that every life has equal value, and works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. BMGF is one of the largest foundations in global health, working in areas such as infectious diseases, vaccine development, technology, maternal, newborn and child health, among others.
The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) worked with us on Ayana, a program aimed at improving saliency of nutrition in Rajasthan. Under the aegis of this program, several events such as a nutrition symposium and CSR summit were convened to educate key stakeholders on the importance of nutrition.
CIFF is the world’s largest philanthropy that focuses specifically on improving children’s lives. CIFF works with a range of partners to transform the lives of vulnerable children and adolescents in developing countries. The foundation’s areas of work include improving children and adolescents’ health, nutrition, education, deworming and welfare, and smart ways to slow down and stop climate change.
The H. T. Parekh Foundation have been our partners since 2019, supporting the Akshita program in Madhya Pradesh (MP). Akshita was launched through an MoU between Antara Foundation and Government of MP’s Departments of Health & Family Welfare, and Women & Child Development.
Built around the “1000 days” construct (from conception through the child’s second year), Akshita aims to improve maternal, child health and nutrition outcomes across the state of MP. H T Parekh Foundation sponsors Akshita’s work in Chhindwara, supporting a range of interventions such as the AAA platform, capacity building of frontline health workers, strengthening of supervisory cadre and rationalisation of frontline workers’ record-keeping registers. We are confident of transforming Chhindwara's and ultimately MP's health status with the strong support from H T Parekh Foundation.
The H T Parekh Foundation was established by Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited (HDFC) in October 2012 and is a major contributor to India’s philanthropic sector. HDFC conducts a significant portion of its Corporate Social Responsibility through the Foundation, which works across several development initiatives across the country.
Tata Trusts partnered with Antara Foundation in March 2015, along with the Govt. of Rajasthan, to support our flagship program, Akshada. The program aimed at improving maternal and child health outcomes in Rajasthan, focusing on the critical ‘1000 days’ between conception and age two.
Tata Trusts have truly been enlightened donors and share our vision for a healthier Rajasthan. They are India’s foremost philanthropic institution and have made invaluable contributions to nation building. The Trusts support and drive innovation in areas such as natural resources management, education, healthcare and nutrition, rural livelihoods, among others. They have been working in Rajasthan since 2003, covering a cross section of development challenges.
The India Nutrition Initiative (TINI) was created by Tata Trusts with a panel of leading experts to develop and advocate an informed stand on policy relating to nutrition. TINI supported the scaling up of our AAA platform to ten districts in Rajasthan under the 'Rajsangam' banner.
