Shiv Nadar Foundation
The Shiv Nadar Foundation was established in 1994 by Shiv Nadar, Founder of HCL - a US$ 8.6 billion leading global enterprise. The Foundation is committed to the creation of a more equitable, merit-based society by empowering individuals through transformational education that bridges the socio-economic divide. To that purpose the Foundation has established institutions and programs in the underdeveloped disciplinary areas in India related to rural and urban education and art.
The Foundation believes that education is the single most powerful tool that has the power to not only transform an individual but create ripple effect which impacts an entire group, community and country at large for centuries to come.
