WELCOME TO
AHMEDABAD COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Ahmedabad Community Foundation (ACF) was initiated as a pilot project in October 2000. It follows the broad principles of Community Foundation elsewhere in the world. The pilot phase was used to ascertain whether such an organization had relevance in the Indian context.

ACF is formed in the spirit of bringing communities together, raising resources for the long-term future, nurturing relationships and connections that build a sense of community. The ACF hopes to inspire people and communities to build funds and resources and distribute the same in the spirit of community for good and forever...

HERITAGE

Ahmedabad Community foundation aims to enhance citizen’s participation in issues of importance to city of Ahmedabad . Heritage has been the focus area of attention since its inception in October 2000. ACF is of the view that conservation is not just about architectural up gradation but it also means preserving the essence of the monument.

 
 

SARKHEJ ROZA CRAFTS & WOMEN’S COLLECTIVE

The people living the Roza were mainly migrants who had come and settled around the Roza at different points in time. It was a fragmented community. Most of them were daily wage earners. In an effort to reach out to the people living around the Roza, ACF decided to commence education classes for children living around the Roza.

 

TREE PLANTATIONS

As an addition to the efforts by AUDA to improve access and infrastructure, ACF undertook massive tree plantations. These were held for consecutive years in the monsoon season. The opportunities provided by these events were used to involve the community living nearby the monument to feel part of the development.
