Azim Premji, Chancellor of Azim Premji University, announced during the 11th convocation of the university that they are initiating new projects to support rural areas.

Over the past 13 years, the university has laid a strong foundation, with many of its 3,500 graduates actively engaged in the social sector nationwide, contributing to various areas such as education, healthcare, livelihoods, governance, and sustainability.

The university plans to expand its financial grant support to non-governmental organizations (NGOs), reaffirming its dedication to creating a fair, equitable, compassionate, and sustainable society.
