Celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, Tata Trusts is amongst India’s oldest, non-sectarian philanthropic organisations that work in several areas of community development. Since its inception, Tata Trusts has played a pioneering role in transforming traditional ideas of philanthropy to make impactful sustainable change in the lives of the communities served. Through direct implementation, co-partnership strategies and grant making, the Trusts support and drive innovation in the areas of education; healthcare and nutrition; rural livelihoods; natural resources management; enhancing civil society and governance and media, arts, crafts and culture. Tata Trusts continue to be guided by the principles of its Founder, Jamsetji Tata and through his vision of proactive philanthropy; the Trusts catalyse societal development while ensuring that initiatives and interventions have a contemporary relevance to the nation.
Tata Trusts considers agricultural development and sustainable livelihoods for communities as one of the key focus areas. In conjunction with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Trusts is supporting Centre for Spatial Analytics and Advanced GIS (C-SAG), established under NIAS, for “empowering” farmers with timely advisories from real-time satellite images, GIS processing, beneficiary-level data analytics using advanced Spatial Analytics and Artificial Intelligence capabilities. Tata Trusts envisions that C-SAG will help Indian farmers and enable them to better plan and manage their on-farm and off-farm activities, thereby improving their agricultural income and their overall quality of life.
