Our Founder

Late Mr. Kapoorchand M. Chandaria was a visionary leader who began
the effort to empower villages in the 1970s. Mr. Chandaria recognized
the significance of water and resources to be retained in a village

With a strong belief in building self-sustaining village communities
he established Anarde Foundation. His ideology was simple – rural
resources must be exploited by rural masses themselves, as they own them.
This continues to be the guiding principle for Anarde Foundation.

He was also involved with several other charitable activities for rural
development of India. The Chandaria Charitable Foundation Trust
runs 4 Uttarbuniyadi schools in Jamnagar for underprivileged rural children.
