About This Project

Ennovent was the India management partner for phase 1 of the Healthy Cities for Adolescents (HCA) program, supported by Fondation Botnar and led by the International Society for Urban Health (ISUH) globally. The program aims to enhance the health and well-being of young people in secondary cities through multi-stakeholder, community-centered programs.


Ennovent co-designed and managed demonstrator projects in India through implementing organisations selected jointly with ISUH and Fondation Botnar. Local, youth-driven solutions to strengthen local governance and create healthy, vibrant, and safe areas for young people were tested in Jaipur (Rajasthan) and Bhubaneswar (Odisha) with adolescents. Simultaneously, discussions were held with state and national stakeholders to engage them in developing a shared vision for healthy cities for adolescents.


Youth well-being was advanced through projects across governance, life skills, and healthy environments. Young people participated in the process of strengthening city environments to meet their needs while interacting with other key stakeholders at the community and government levels.

Dear Friends,


Thank you for your interest in Ennovent! We closed down Ennovent’s operations at the end of March 2024.


We had been deliberating about continuing our work in the changing overall market and impact space during the last year. The decision to close came after careful consideration of major policy shifts, changing funding priorities and market challenges that have significantly affected our business model.


Reflecting on our journey since 2008, we are filled with great pride in the legacy Ennovent leaves behind. We have been a catalyst for more than 250 ventures across 40 countries through our involvement in 90 projects. Our mission has always been to promote businesses with sustainable solutions for low-income markets, a goal that we pursued with unwavering commitment. As we move forward, our team members remain dedicated to pursuing lasting sustainable impact through their future endeavours.


We deeply appreciate your support and patronage over the years.


Warm regards,
Team Ennovent
