Ambuja Cements Transforms 88-Year-Old School, Wins Rs 14 Lakh Award

Maharashtra, 1 July 2024: Ambuja Cements, the cement and building material company of the diversified Adani Portfolio, is determined to promote and support high quality education for future generations. Through CSR efforts, Ambuja Cements has enabled the complete transformation of Zilla Parishad (ZP) upper primary school, Bhoygaon in Korpana block of Chandrapur, Maharashtra, into an award-winning educational institution. The school recently won first place at the district-level in ‘Mazi Shala, Sunder Shala’ competition by the Government of Maharashtra, along with prize money of Rs. 14 lakhs.


The ZP school was established in Bhoygaon in 1935, and not much had been done to improve its facilities ever since. Looking at its dilapidated state, most of the 1,478 residents here had preferred sending their children to a private English medium school in the area.

Identifying the need for an intervention, Ambuja Cements’ CSR teams got to work on various interventions. Along with the school management committee, they began with a drive to collect funds for a library at the ZP school, and also donated books for the same. Guidance was also provided to students on competitive examinations, vocational education lessons, summer and winter camps, sports promotion as well as stationery distribution.

To encourage the communities and their kids to take ownership of keeping the campus clean and green, the CSR team had organised a cleanliness competition. They collectively even created a beautiful garden and courtyard at the campus, while also promoting good hygiene through the WASH programme.

Various reading classes were also conducted to ensure the students have proficiency with using the English language. The CSR teams enabled the school to also receive an ISO rating. The transformation of the school has led to many other charitable organisations coming forward with financial support for the school.

Ambuja Cements is proud to be an enabler of such an absolute turnaround, as it understands the importance of investing in boosting education through academic as well as infrastructural support, as each student represents a ray of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
