About Our Organisation

Peepal Foundation

Peepal Foundation began as the
brain-child of a few altruistically
inclined professionals from
different walks of life.

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.

We began with the estab­lish­ment of a bal­wa­di, a day­care cen­tre for chil­dren of con­struc­tion work­ers and labor­ers at Hadap­sar and slow­ly expand­ed our out­reach to sev­er­al groups across Pune, Mum­bai and Lonavla.

Begin­ning 2007, our des­ig­nat­ed year for Child Edu­ca­tion, Devel­op­ment and Empow­er­ment (CEDE) and see­ing the con­se­quent need for sus­tained inter­ven­tion; we decid­ed to con­cen­trate our efforts towards edu­ca­tion of the under­priv­i­leged children.

With a vision to spawn a wave of trans­for­ma­tion, hav­ing received an over­whelm­ing response to our first Devel­op­ment Cen­tre (DC) and its sub­se­quent suc­cess inspired us to broad­en our approach and out­reach to for­mu­late a whole new mod­ule that would tar­get younger chil­dren. Thus was born the idea for CEDE, a holis­tic approach towards devel­op­ing a child’s per­son­al­i­ty, knowl­edge and skills, there­by mak­ing him a more con­fi­dent individual.


To work for the empow­er­ment of the under­priv­i­leged groups (chil­dren, aged, abused women and AIDS afflict­ed) by direct inter­ven­tion, edu­ca­tion, aware­ness, skill build­ing and knowl­edge training.


To spawn a wave of trans­for­ma­tion, a mass move­ment that would bring about con­tin­u­al improve­ment in the lives of the needy.

  • CEDE (Child Edu­ca­tion, Devel­op­ment and Empow­er­ment) Inter­ven­tion through ‘CEDE’
Outreach has grown from
30 children in 2001 to over 35000
underprivileged children and over
200 senior citizens at present.

We have spon­sored more than 3000+ chil­dren and pro­vid­ed them with books and uni­forms as well as school fees for spe­cial cases.

From the time we began 10 years ago, up until now, our pro­grams have under­gone tremen­dous meta­mor­phoses in con­tent as well as in involve­ment. But the aim has always been the same “Empow­er­ing the under­priv­i­leged”.
