At Peepul, we believe that creating an
environment for meaningful student teacher interactions, is key to transforming the system.
What’s in our name?
Our organization is named after the Peepul tree, which holds great significance in Indian culture. Lord Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment under a Peepul tree. Perhaps because of this reason, it is considered the tree of wisdom and its shade has served -and still does in some regions - as a setting for open classrooms.
Peepul trees have deep roots and foster a nourishing environment around themselves. As an organization, we aim to be exactly that for our children: a steadfast presence around which they can thrive and learn.
We believe it is fitting that our name resembles "people", considering we are a people-centric and people-first organization that empowers teachers to transform classroom learning and puts children's interests at the centre of everything we do.
All our actions are driven by what is best for the children we work for.
