Overview: Project Nanhi Kali was initiated in 1996 by the K C Mahindra Education Trust (KCMET) with the aim of providing primary education to underprivileged girl children in India. It is believed that empowering the girl child with education would result in huge benefits for the nation in the long term as it is felt that there is a strong correlation between the existing societal ills in India such as spiralling population rate, dowry deaths, caste system etc and no education of the girl child.So it was with the dual objectives of impacting the nation’s development through education of the girl child & encouraging Indians to “give back” in a focussed manner that Anand Mahindra began Nanhi Kali, a sponsorship program, where individuals could support the education of a girl child in India.
