Addressing the

multidimensional problems

We Provide Care

Peo­ple at Peepal Foun­da­tion came togeth­er inclined to Make The World A Bet­ter Place. It did­n’t mat­ter that they were pro­fes­sion­als from dif­fer­ent walks of life.

There were mul­ti­di­men­sion­al prob­lems to address. Yet through it all, car­ing was supreme.

When a few altru­is­ti­cal­ly inclined pro­fes­sion­als from dif­fer­ent walks of life, resolved to mobilise their com­pas­sion for the under­priv­i­leged, things moved from just being ideas to actions, which in turn start­ed mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the lives of the needy. Peepal Foun­da­tion start­ed mak­ing inroads into the lives of peo­ple they wished to serve.

Why choose Peepal

  1. A Journey That Has Been Impactful

    The mod­est begin­nings in 2001 soon grew in both scope and out­reach and we are proud to be where we are at the end of a decade, hav­ing impact­ed approx­i­mate­ly 35000+ chil­dren and over 200 elder­ly Take a peek at the chil­dren who’ve been with us. (Tes­ti­mo­ni­als, pica, videos)

  2. A Helping Hand For The Marginalised

    With so much devel­op­men­tal work in towns and cities, it is com­mon to have labour­ers at con­struc­tion sites leave their lit­tle ones and new­borns in the care of their slight­ly old­er off­spring. Risk­ing their children’s safe­ty in order to earn their liveli­hood, is cer­tain­ly not the best solu­tion. Mar­gin­alised peo­ple too have feel­ings and aspi­ra­tions and wish to give the best care to keep their chil­dren safe and would like to edu­cate them if pos­si­ble. Even if it was a drop in the ocean, Peepal began with the estab­lish­ment of a bal­wa­di, a day­care cen­tre for chil­dren of con­struc­tion work­ers and labor­ers at Hadap­sar, and slow­ly expand­ed the out­reach to sev­er­al groups across Pune, Mum­bai and Lonavla.

  3. Handholding towards a life of dignity

    Begin­ning 2007, our des­ig­nat­ed year for Child Edu­ca­tion, Devel­op­ment and Empow­er­ment (CEDE) and see­ing the con­se­quent need for sus­tained inter­ven­tion. (Some details of the CEDE programme)

Sudarshan Madabhushi

“Peepal Foun­da­tion has done so much for the elder­ly — orga­niz­ing work­shops, health checks, OPDs, but the most sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion was to reju­ve­nate us into action and cre­ate a strong, cohe­sive sup­port group amongst us. Its thanks to them that our senior cit­i­zens forum is gain­ing momen­tum in Yerawada.”

Sadanand Avchare President, Prerana Jyeshtha Nagarik Sangh

“Peepal Foun­da­tion not only helped us improve infra­struc­ture and over­all stan­dard of teach­ing in the school but also brought our school into the lime­light by bring­ing it to the atten­tion of NGOs and corporates.”

Shri Bhojane Principal, Samata Balak Mandir Shikshan Sanstha, Yerawada

“It has been an amaz­ing and reveal­ing expe­ri­ence to work with Peepal for chil­dren and the elder­ly. To bring a smile was the best award indeed. I tru­ly respect Vineet and his team for their self less ser­vice to soci­ety and my best wish­es to Peepal Foun­da­tion for a flow­er­ing future.”

CEDE stands for Child Educa­tion, Devel­op­ment and Empow­er­ment

CEDE uses a three-pronged approach where it aims at -

  • Holis­tic devel­op­ment of chil­dren by coach­ing them on a vari­ety of aspects as well as devel­op­ing their over­all per­son­al­i­ty, enhanc­ing their knowl­edge and work life skills, there­by empow­er­ing them to become more con­fi­dent and respon­si­ble individuals.
  • Enabling teach­ers / change man­agers with the right tools and mod­ern teach­ing tech­niques through a vari­ety of ‘Teach­ers Train­ing’ workshops.
  • Reg­u­lar ‘Empow­er­ment Work­shops’ for par­ents, school author­i­ties and teach­ers as well as change man­agers and vol­un­teers who are impor­tant enablers in a child’s devel­op­ment process.

Our coun­try has pro­gressed eco­nom­i­cal­ly and major steps have been tak­en to enhance edu­ca­tion stan­dards but some­where along the way, we seem to have lost sight of our tra­di­tion­al val­ues. The time has come when we must start mould­ing the char­ac­ter of stu­dents to become good cit­i­zens and retain our eth­nic­i­ty. With a huge expan­sion of the edu­ca­tion sys­tem, the stan­dard as mea­sured by the per­cent­age of marks obtained in exam­i­na­tions has been ris­ing to unprece­dent­ed lev­els. But, unfor­tu­nate­ly there is a marked decline in the char­ac­ter, moral val­ues and gen­er­al behav­ior of stu­dents com­ing out of schools and col­leges. In most edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions, there is a total lack of the con­cept of human devel­op­ment and nation build­ing in the edu­ca­tion process. The empha­sis instead, is on achiev­ing max­i­mum per­cent­age in aca­d­e­m­ic results, mon­ey-mak­ing and mate­ri­al­ism. This has result­ed in the grad­ual ero­sion of val­ues among peo­ple and the body politic. This trend needs to be reversed if India has to sur­vive as a nation and acquire its due place in the world. The only way to arrest this decline is in pro­vid­ing val­ue-ori­en­ta­tion in our edu­ca­tion­al system.

Under­stand­ing the above chal­lenge at hand, the need is to take con­crete action of fram­ing cur­ric­u­la and devel­op­ment and adap­ta­tion of inno­v­a­tive meth­ods to incul­cate val­ues and ethics in children.

Our hum­ble attempt is to bridge this gap using a three pronged approach by intro­duc­ing CEDE (Child Edu­ca­tion, Devel­op­ment and Empow­er­ment), a holis­tic devel­op­men­tal pro­gram to enhance a child’s per­son­al­i­ty, knowl­edge and skills, there­by mak­ing him a con­fi­dent and respon­si­ble indi­vid­ual; as well as Empow­er­ment Work­shops for teach­ers, par­ents, change man­agers and volunteers.
