About DLF Foundation

A charitable organisation under the leadership of Mr. K.P. Singh, Chairman, DLF, the Foundation has made valuable contributions to change the social landscape. From striving for a clean sustainable city through the Gurugram Rejuvenation Project, to setting up skills training centres to train 1 million youth in emerging sectors, the Foundation also lends financial support to meritorious underprivileged students.

DLF Foundation aspires to continue changing lives for the better by setting new benchmarks in rural education, health, and employment conditions.


In the face of global paucity of skilled human resources, the DLF Foundation finds immense scope in polishing the skill sets of the underprivileged. In India, due to rapid industrialisation, the need for human resource development and NGO agencies for the poor arises. It helps the individual in discovering opportunities, capabilities, inner strengths and weaknesses, skill-set as well as interpersonal skills.


DLF Foundation envisions building India’s human and social capital by nurturing and ensuring healthy, educated, enterprising, and sustainable communities.


The DLF Foundation fulfils its obligations to society through the various initiatives listed below:

  • Opened 42 employability linked vocational training centres so far under DLF LIFE (Learning Initiative for Employment) to train 1 million youth.
  • Rural unemployed youth are the primary beneficiaries of the initiative.
  • Prepares young people for the job market, training them in emerging sectors such as hospitality, customer relations and sales, IT enabled services, electronics, and construction.
  • Not just limited to training but also ensures employment.
  • Executed successfully in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Delhi.
  • Plans to add more skill training centres to extend outreach.

  • It is expected that by the end of the year we will be able to showcase our Cluster Village Development Programme as a model to replicate more widely.

Sustainable Urban Mobility

Public Transport and Safety are a major concern in Gurugram. To address the issue, the DLF Foundation joined hands with eight corporate offices, research organisations, RWA, and Government Authorities to conduct a workshop on ‘Building Lives by Ensuring Sustainable Mobility’. As a result, two MoUs were signed with ABInBev and Mobike to enhance road safety and last mile connectivity.

    GRP has installed AQ Monitors in collaboration with Atlanta Healthcare in four phases of the DLF City, Gurugram, to promote low carbon mobility.

  • Solid and liquid waste management

    GRP has joined hands with RWA and organic waste management company Green Bandhu to implement decentralised liquid and solid waste management strategies. The pilot project has been started in residential area of DLF Phase I by Green Bandhu.

  • Transforming Najafgarh Basin

    Gurgaon’s fast-growing population over the years has created ecological pressures. GRP has collaborated with various private and public organisation and stakeholders to tackle the issue. A key highlight was the launch of a white paper on ‘Transformation of Najafgarh Basin’ on December 14, 2017. Prior to the launch of the paper, a workshop was organised in August 2017, which brought multiple stakeholders, research organisations, and corporates together to formulate wetland conservation and a regeneration strategy for the area.
