About Infosys Foundation
Infosys Foundation was conceived with a simple goal: paying it forward by creating lasting, intergenerational change and helping people across the country. Our projects and grants have been instrumental in changing lives and developing the future leaders of the country through better access to resources and opportunities.
The Foundation's major focus areas include healthcare, education, sustainability, and women empowerment. It also prioritizes support for rural development, art and culture, and unforeseen events. And in 2023, we are proud to have extended our legacy of empowering marginalized communities to all 28 states of the country. Explore stories from our journey below.

Stories of Success
Infosys Foundation Initiatives
Discover how we're building a more equitable, safer, and better nation for marginalized communities, one initiative at a time.
Breaking the barriers to STEM Education
The pandemic caused a huge disruption in the grade-appropriate learning levels of rural children who had no access to internet service. eVidyaloka and Yuva Unstoppable bridged this gap with a well-designed STEM education program in 300 schools across states by setting up digital classrooms and teach-through-television programs, so that no child gets left behind.
Smarter investments for a healthier nation
After surpassing China as the world's most populous nation, India's healthcare industry faces an unprecedented demand that requires timely intervention. Infosys Foundation rose to the task by partnering with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi to rapidly operationalize its Mother and Child Health (MCH) block and build an imaging data system, unlocking critical healthcare access.
Championing women in sports
Women athletes have traditionally been on the backfoot due to lack of safety, facilities, expertise, opportunity and equality. The Girls for Gold program, conceived by Infosys Foundation and GoSports Foundation, gave female athletes a much-needed boost by facilitating world-class sporting expertise, sports science centers, and technology-enabled academies across multiple sports.
Keeping the city running and breathing
As Bengaluru's traffic woes increase with more people getting their own vehicles, Infosys Foundation came to the rescue. It joined hands with Namma Metro to construct a first-of-its-kind metro station in Electronic City that not only helps commuters travel smoothly but also helps the environment breathe more easily by harvesting rainwater and solar energy.
