Aegis is a proud sponsor of ANARDE FOUNDATION, which was established in 1979. The mission of the Foundation is to help in eradicating poverty in rural India through a program of integrated rural development. ANARDE operates in nearly all AEGIS import terminal locations and extensively in states of Gujarat and Maharashtra, where, through its network of regional Centres and field workers, it is involved in several initiatives such as the management of village water resources, skills development training, setting up of self-help groups, empowerment of women and entrepreneurship development. ANARDE also works closely with banks to promote the inclusion of the rural population in the formal financial sector. A number of low-cost rural housing projects have been coordinated by the Foundation in collaboration with international agencies such as Habitat for Humanity.
The Foundation operates as an independent charitable foundation under the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950 and receives substantial donations from Aegis Logistics Ltd. to carry out its mission.
