Peepul is an education-focused non-profit. We dream and work towards creating an education system in India that enables ‘every child to realize their potential.’
We work closely with governments at the national, state, and local levels to transform government schools and government systems. The poorest children in India study in government schools and too many of them are falling through the cracks. We are determined to ensure that they receive a high-quality education to help them succeed in life.
We are restless, resilient, and reflective. We aim high, we innovate, we work smart, we work as a team and we use rigorous research to inform our work. We run systemic education programmes that, together, ensure that we adopt a holistic view towards improving state education systems. We are a fast-paced organisation that aims high.
Towards creating exemplar education ecosystems, some of what we do includes:
Run Exemplar Schools: we run exemplar schools in partnership with the government to show what ‘great’ looks like. Starting with one school with 9 children in 2015, we now have a network of 3 schools that directly impact 1,000 children.
Systemic Interventions: we create systemic influence through large-scale interventions such as teacher training, capacity building of government education officials, working with district and state-level training institutes and advising on policy reform.
Government Policy and Advisory: we advise state governments on improving governance and accountability structures through our work on quality assurance, levers for school improvement and knowledge as practitioners of quality improvement.
Thought Leadership: we recognize the criticality of institutionalizing and codifying our best practices, content, and processes so that they can be standardized, scaled, and can be adopted by government systems to improve government schools as well as shared more widely with the education ecosystem in India.

More about Peepul
One principle unites us in all our endeavors: we put children first.
We believe that all children should have choices in life. And we must fight to make this happen. Sometimes that means making difficult decisions – we will have to say or do things that are hard for us and for other people.
All our actions are driven by what is best for the children we work for.
When we work, we:
We have the highest expectations. We ask everyone to give their best in everything they do. The children at our schools are expected to aim high, and the staff at Peepul does the same. We do not accept excuses, and we do not make excuses.
Use rigorous research
We use the latest research and data in all our work, and we scrutinize our results. Our approach is evidence-based, and we direct our resources to those projects that we are sure will make a difference.
We work hard to achieve our aims. But, more important, we work smart.
We are systematic, seeking models that are already successful and finding ways of building on that success. We share our expertise – between teams, between schools, across the world. This way, we maximize our results.
Work as a team
Tough challenges take grit and determination, and teamwork too. None of us can succeed on our own. We need to support and learn from each other, and we work best when we work as a team.
Together, we make the biggest difference.
