Yearbook 2021/22

TOGETHER,
BETTER.

SCROLL TO CONTINUE

At Cognizant Foundation we are building a sustainable ecosystem at the intersections of technology, inclusion and collaboration.

Our programmes are designed and implemented with a core focus on inclusion. We believe that inclusion does not mean exclusion; inclusion for us is promoting equity and enabling participation of people who are disadvantaged by enabling opportunities and access to resources.

Our Interventions have a strong focus on child and women welfare, gender equality, prevention of disability and supporting persons with disability and our interventions are primarily in the thematic areas of Healthcare, Education and Livelihood

Cognizant Foundation. Together, Better.

"In 2021, the Foundation realigned its goals and launched initiatives focused on the welfare of children, women, and persons with disabilities. We are pleased that the Foundation’s ‘Preventing Childhood Blindness’ initiative was selected as the winner in the ‘Healthcare (Large)’ category at the 7th CSR Impact Awards."

N. R. KRISHNAN, IAS (Retd.)

"Pan India projects with substantial financial commitments from Cognizant Foundation have recorded notable success not only in urban areas but in rural locations as well. Credit for this achievement goes largely to the institutions that the Foundation is associated with."

K. BALAJI

Director, Cognizant Foundation
