A Step Towards Education.  Support for the Educational Institutes.

Bharat Forge has collaborated with different engineering colleges as industry partners to bridge the skill gap between academics and industry. Bharat Forge provides teaching expertise, coaching & training to the educational institutes. The Talent Pipeline Program is part of our educational initiatives.


By establishing the 'Pratham Pune Education Foundation'(PPEF), Bharat Forge began the challenging task of making primary education accessible to the less fortunate. Over the past 16 years, since its inception, PPEF has touched the lives of over 150,000 children in Pune and has become an important catalyst for women empowerment.

Pratham works with an objective to develop the educational skills of the children belonging to the most underprivileged section of the community, to clear basic concepts of Mathematics, Science, English & Marathi to help them learn with fun & therefore motivate them for further education.

Projects under Pratham:

  • Learning Camps
  • Shishu Wachan
  • MES high competency program
  • Science Library
  • Science Program

Kalyani School

The company has been contributing significantly in the field of education by starting an Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Pune, India. We have also adopted two Industrial Training Institutes in order to uplift the standard of education and infrastructure of the institutes.

Bharat Forge promotes education through Akutai Kalyani Trust, a public charitable trust, since 1993. The trust supports educational foundation, thereby carrying out educational activities indirectly. From 2014, the Trust decided to directly carry out educational activities with support from The Kalyani Group Companies.

The Kalyani School was started with a vision to provide children with a harmonious and stimulating environment where they can strive for all-round excellence and emerge as responsible citizens. The Kalyani School provides children with an environment, which is conducive for holistic development. Academics and co-curricular activities are well balanced to ensure that every aspect of the child’s growth and development is catered to. Facilities for both indoor and outdoor games have been provided, keeping in mind diverse interests and aptitudes of children.
