Slum Rehabilitation

Slum Rehabilitation

The story of the Sanjay Nagar slum and its residents showcases Arvind’s long-term commitment to the betterment of the city of Ahmedabad and its people.

  • Background

    In 1996, as a CSR project, we envisioned the possibility of rehabilitating the slum dwellers of Sanjay Nagar to safer, better built and comfortable houses. And once the vision was in place, we made it happen, by co-creating these homes in a unique three-way partnership between the people of Sanjay Nagar, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and Arvind.

In 2014, the process of transformation of Sanjay Nagar was completed when Arvind Lifespaces re-developed the area in a commercial manner, giving all residents homes in modern, upscale towers.

Empowering Tribal Women

Gyanda is Arvind’s flagship programme in the field of education. It is a unique supplementary education model designed for primary, secondary and higher secondary school-going children studying in Municipal Schools. It prevents these children from dropping out and helps them complete their basic education from standard V to XII, while focusing on improving their academic performance and overall personality development.


Arvind undertook another initiative in association with Swasth India Foundation to launch Arvind Medical Centres to provide quality healthcare services such as Doctor Consultations, Basic Diagnosis, Quality medicines, Dental Care Services, etc. at affordable costs to the underprivileged section of the society.


Established in association with the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, this 1996 CSR project was envisioned to provide safer, better-built and comfortable houses to the slum dwellers of Sanjay Nagar and majestically transformed the slums of Sanjay Nagar into modern homes and upscale towers.


Women, educated upto class XII are chosen on the basis of their aptitude, Health conditions, dexterity, etc. and all their basic needs are taken care of by the company while they pursue higher education. Also known as CSR in Spirit, this unique residential programme aims at educating tribal women in order to make them self-reliant.
