Itendra Medtiyan is small post at Khor village in Pali district of Rajasthan with a population of 6800 people. The Sarpanch of Itendra Medtiyan raised the issue of no street lights in the village. The Sarpanch, also addressing environmental issues and setting an example for neighbouring villages, identified at least 75 locations and asked for support in setting up solar lights at these locations to solve the issue.
ChandraMohan Foundation, with the CSR support of Sanjay Chemicals (India) Private Limited, supported in installing 83 solar street light poles at the identified locations covering the entire village. A short survey using FGDs (Focussed Group Discussion) with important stakeholders was done and the stakeholder group represented by the Sarpanch gave a very positive feedback for this initiative.
Masti ki Paathshaala is concept that fosters creative thinking and initiative, collaboration as against competition, diversity as against standardization, and most importantly, empathy for fellow beings. Therefore, it follows a problem solving model, where they throw real life problems at kids.

A Dialysis unit requires an entire system to be functional. IT needs an RO plant, a storage tank, a transfer pump, UV system, filter and finally the Dialysis Unit.
Keeping this in mind, CMF supported installation of RO plant for Dialysis Unit at Anand Niketan, King George V Memorial, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai where a Dialysis machine was available but not operational due to absence of RO plant. CMF supported this installation making the unit fully functional and useful.
With an objective to spark, develop and encourage entrepreneurship skills that would help individuals to hone their analytical abilities and strategic competencies necessary to become successful entrepreneurs someday, ChandraMohan Foundation took the initiative to give a few students a taste of entrepreneurial thinking in a safe controlled environment.
This is was not a business plan or a venture competition but a program to spark entrepreneurship. The program saw enthusiastic participation from students in various colleges.
The responses received by the teams during the four days of the activity were extremely encouraging. The students said that they never thought they could do any entrepreneurial activity in the time they had after classes or on weekends. This activity led them to understand how to utilize the time and direct their effort for such entrepreneurial activities and has encouraged them to choose entrepreneurship as a career path.
ChandraMohan Foundation supports the Balnandanvan Nisarg Shala, Palghar, a school for tribal children.
All the students are children of below-poverty-line migrant laborers who hail primarily from the Warli and Katkari tribes. Migrant laborers do not have permanent jobs, nor do they have a permanent home. As a result, the children never get education and they therefore grow up and become migrant labor like their parents. It is to break this vicious cycle that this school has been set up. The school is residential, so the laborers can leave their children behind when they go in search of work. There is no fee charged to the students. The education, food, clothing everything is free of cost.
Thus, ChandraMohan Foundation supports the school through donations to continue the meaningful work done.
