To have lasting sustainable impact through our CSR we incorporated AU Foundation.

We at AU Foundation, identified our core focus areas after assessing various fields related to social development sector and sustainable development goals set in 2015 by United Nations General Assembly which together comprises Health & Sanitation, Education, Skill Development, Financial & Digital Literacy, Women Empowerment, Rural Development, Sports, Environment & Sustainability and so on.
At outset, key objectives were recognized for the assessment and basis that we work to check the effectiveness of programs through our detailed framework which includes crossing various stages such as - How best we can do to excel? - How is it impacting social development? - Will this sector touch lives and add to the growth? - Will there be any impact on business? - Is this sector getting neglected? - What will be the loss, if we don’t intervene? - How to communicate to get impact on social media? Working carefully and ethically, we will continue to embed the evaluation process for sustainable projects.
