About Mindtree


MindTree Minds are guided by MindTree's CLASS values. CLASS stands for Caring, Learning, Achieving, Sharing and Socially responsible.

The Mindtree Foundation

MindTree is committed to the pursuit of better living for people with disabilities and enhancement in the quality of primary education. Working on the leading edge of technology innovation, MindTree firmly believes it can add significant value through assistive technologies in achieving these goals.

MindTree Foundation provides the platform to channelize these initiatives.

Formation and History
MindTree Foundation was officially incorporated on 20th November 2007 under section 25 of Companies Act.

MindTree Foundation Charter
The core mission of this non-profit organization is to ‘Support primary education and the cause of differently-abled people by leveraging MindTree’s leadership, values, and resources’.

Our Five-year Vision is to:
a) Be an acknowledged global leader in assistive technologies
b) Build sustained social sector engagements in 4 different parts of the world
c) Pioneer at least 3 innovative engagement models in the Social Sector

What this charter does
The charter is designed to empower and motivate MindTree minds to actively contribute to social causes through their understanding of best in class technology systems and solutions.

Our Initiatives

MindTree Foundation’s charter supports 3 broad initiatives:

  • People with disabilities (with specific focus on Assistive Technologies)
  • Primary education
  • Mindshare

People with disabilities (with specific focus on Assistive Technologies)
As a company at the forefront of technology innovation, MindTree appreciates the benefits that technology can deliver to people with disabilities in any form. These assistive technologies are envisioned to support differently-abled people to interact better with their environment.

The foundation aims to support the development and dissemination of assistive technologies to address the needs of people with different types of disabilities – muscular, visual, hearing, mental and learning disabilities.

The initiative was launch last year with an engagement with Spastics Society of Karnataka (SSK). The foundation will also work closely with educational institutions like IITs, identify promising technologies available in their labs and help bring these technologies to the market by leveraging MindTree’s engineering capabilities and partner ecosystem.

Primary Education
By focusing on primary education, MindTree believes that a higher impact can be achieved in building a better foundation for future. The charter provides a formal platform to execute such an initiative. We’ve been supporting schools for their infrastructure, curriculum development, employment of additional teaching staff and training of teachers.

Mindshare is an initiative across MindTree’s global footprint. Wherever we are on the map, this initiative will help identify specific areas where MindTree Minds can contribute to the society.

Each location is anchored by a Catalyst who will identify and connect MindTree Minds to volunteer with social sector organizations. The significant aspect of this program is that this will ensure each MindTree Mind who volunteers for this program personally interacts with the beneficiary. The objective is to share time, attention, and affection with these people to make them feel special.

The mindshare program provides MindTree minds the opportunity to interact with people who are different from those with whom we normally interact in our work life, for example, differently-abled, senior citizens and destitutes, terminally ill patients, primary school children, orphaned children, prison inmates, and children living in economically weaker localities. These people face challenges of a far greater magnitude in their real life and the program helps MindTree Minds to appreciate these challenges with their personal interaction. Along with helping the beneficiary, this experience will also contribute to the personal evolution of the MindTree Mind.

MindTree has also contributed to address the impact of various calamities across the world including the Katrina, the Indonesian Tsunami, floods in Bihar, etc.
