Our success is rooted in our communities. As individuals and as an institution, we benefited from the contributions of those before us. We are here today because they have opened doors of learning and carved out new paths of possibilities.
In turn, we seek to enrich the community by widening portals of knowledge and extending pathways of opportunities, be it.

Beyond corporate goals, the Wadia Group has also been on the forefront of Corporate Social Responsibility. Their community welfare began with the efforts of Bai Jerbai Wadia, who determinedly set out to construct low cost baugs or housing colonies in Bombay for lower and middle-class Parsis. Between 1908 and 1956, a total of five baugs were built on more than 35 Acres of prime property, with over 1500 Apartments built in 64 buildings.
These Baugs are Nowroz Baug, Rustom Baug, Bai Jerbai Baug, Cusrow Baug and Ness Baug. Even today, they stand testimony to the magnanimous spirit of Bai Jerbai and her sons.
The Wadia colleges in Pune provide higher education to 11,000 students. Another significant achievement in the academic field is the Neville N Wadia College of Business Management and Research.
Inspired by her commitment towards quality healthcare her sons Ness and Cusrow set about building much needed hospitals in Bombay. The Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital grew out of the passion that Sir Ness Wadia had for improving the condition of the society and ensure healthcare for all.
Sir Cusrow Wadia joined his brother Ness to build the Bai Jerbai Wadia womens Hospital in the memory of their mother. Today, the two hospitals have some of the best research facilities and the most distinguished medical practitioners in attendance.
Successive generations of Wadias have replicated the generosity of the founding fathers, with equal enthusiasm. The Sir Ness Wadia Foundation, a charitable trust set up in 1969 has disbursed a large amount of funds to a wide spectrum of causes ranging from Medical needs of the less fortunate to scholarships for the disabled to drought relief in different parts of the world.
In many ways, the human factor has been the cornerstone of the Group’s success.
