At Nidar, nation-building comes first. Our profit and competitiveness have always been secondary, as our business verticals continue to be guided by a vision and strategy which drive people and the nation as a whole through sustainable and transformative ventures, be it in real estate, energy, or infrastructure.
Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, every sector where Nidar has a presence, saw value-addition through its conscientiousness and adaptability.
At the Nidar Group, our constant endeavour is to offer all our customers an elevated sense of living. All our initiatives are focused on this core value, as we spread the net beyond geographical boundaries, creating global communities.
Our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiatives under the aegis of the Hiranandani Foundation are an integral part of our business agenda. We are continuously expanding our CSR reach through several programmes, the most notable of them being in the area of Healthcare and Education.
To contribute to India’s on-going development process, the Nidar group provides competency-based skill-oriented training and capacity-building to create a sustainable community of skilled workforce, and enhance livelihoods.
These initiatives are aimed at creating livelihood opportunities to the youth from challenging backgrounds, by training them in market-related skills to boost their employability. We have established various Centres of Excellence (CoE) in the following areas to facilitate this:
Students are tutored in practical courses such as English Speaking, Basic Beauty & Hair Dressing, Computer Fundamentals Networking; and Primary Health Assistant training. We have partnered with several NGOs across multiple locations in and around Mumbai to conduct these programmes. From a modest 235 students trained in FY2012-13, a total of 5,353 individuals were trained during FY2018-19, along with the HSNC Board.
Some of our candidates have become skill development trainers themselves, advancing learning and employment for the next wave of students. Our aim is to scale this further and upskill at least 8,000 individuals and enable them to enhance their livelihoods.
