Who are we?

India’s public education system often struggles to enable the teacher or create a meaningful teacher-student interaction. Typically, it offers neither a conducive environment for teaching, nor enough resources, nor avenues for pedagogical development. We believe that creating an environment for meaningful student-teacher interactions is key to transforming the system.


That’s why we exist.

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. All our actions are driven by what is best for the children we work for.
