The schools are located in Ahmedabad, Bhadreshwar, Surguja, and Krishnapatnam. They reflect the Adani Foundation’s commitment towards benefiting underprivileged sections of society. The schools offer students an education that is a perfect blend of traditional values and modern technology.
The schools are spread across three different states and accommodate around 3,000 students. The number of schools operating under Adani Vidya Mandir is expected to increase over the years.

The initiative was taken up in collaboration with the Godda district administration and Eckovation Private Limited. It is aimed at offering cutting-edge interactive curriculum to students through smart classrooms.
The Gyanodaya project has been able to successfully bring down dropout rates of students in Godda district. Over 316 smart classrooms are operating under the project. The classrooms focus on contextualised learning. Over 80,000 students are a part of this initiative. The operations were active even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This initiative aims to improve numeracy and foundation literacy among students by adopting various government primary schools and focusing on enabling their holistic development. A Utthan Sahayak, who acts as a facilitator, is appointed in each of the schools. The project is meant to make the process of learning joyful by offering the desired resources to students.
Utthan focuses on transforming government primary schools for the better so that they become a primary choice of schools for parents from lower middle-class families. The schools also train selected students for JNV entrance examinations and NMMS scholarships. Currently, the project is operational in around 236 schools in 3 states.
