The Villoo Poonawalla Foundation supports and manages several schools, an ultramodern multispecialty hospital, a city wide sanitation & waste management project called 'Clean City Initiative' as well as provides clean drinking water to more than 35 locations in several villages neighboring Pune.
Villoo Poonawalla Memorial Hospital is a tertiary care multispecialty hospital in Pune providing ethical and affordable medical services to all its patients at the highest standards of medical care. The Villoo Poonawalla Foundation in association with the Welfare Medical Foundation and Serum Institute of India have constructed, equipped and commissioned the Villoo Poonawalla Memorial Hospital inaugurated by legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar in December 2016.
The Villoo Poonawalla Foundation and Serum Institute of India believe that education is a game changer in the lives of the underprivileged in India and with this aim have constructed and supported various schools and welfare educational institutions. We believe that an education in English is essential for our students to have a successful career and brighter future, hence all our schools are English medium schools.
