This grant is a call to arms for projects that actively promote and implement universal design concepts, creating a tangible impact on inclusivity.

Project UDita is not just a project; it’s a call to action, an invitation to break down barriers, and a commitment to a more inclusive future. UDita is brought to you by Mphasis F1 Foundation and Avas with Ethos Foundation as the knowledge partner. We envision a future where every person can flourish, irrespective of their ability, age, or background.

We trust in your capacity to bring this vision to life!

Goals of the Grants Program:

Design Challenge: Crafting Inclusive Spaces for a Barrier-free India

Imagine your design challenges finding solutions not only in public buildings but also in the tapestry of our residential communities, bustling campuses, offices, NGOs, and beyond. The UDita Grant empowers you to address design challenges at a neighbourhood level, making a tangible impact on the lives of numerous users you may interact with personally. Start small, but envision great impact. Think of apps, products, small space renovations, small units/prototypes, and public space inclusions that will be built/brought to life with the Rs. 50,000 funding.

However, let’s not forget the practicalities of turning vision into reality. The execution of these projects demands collaboration and permission from concerned authorities, ensuring that your designs materialise as tangible, impactful changes in our communities. The next segment invites you to close your eyes and imagine…
