About the Organization
EdelGive Foundation (EG) is the strategic philanthropic arm of the Edelweiss Group. EdelGive offers both financial and capacity building support to Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) by working closely with them to help them overcome organisational development challenges. Apart from providing financial and capacity building support, EdelGive also acts as a catalyst between NPOs and potential funders. EdelGive Foundation primarily works in 3 areas - Education, Livelihood and Women Empowerment.
Since inception, education has been a major focus area for EdelGive Foundation. It supports multiple education programs which include Primary & Secondary School, Early Childhood Care Education and Remedial Programs, Life skill Development and Research and Advocacy. The EdelGive Coalition for transforming Education (ECE) is EdelGive’s Public-Private Partnership that aims to transform education in rural Maharashtra.
The project is a public private partnership between Edelgive and the Govt of Maharashtra. The crux of the project is onsite support and coaching to teachers, creation of peer learning communities and cluster and block level intervention.
This is a five year project in total and is expected to impact 44,000+ children, 600+ schools, 2000+ teachers and 100+ school managers. Great Eastern CSR funds are going towards supporting this project
