Home-grown charity and philanthropy has been central to India’s culture since the ages. Today, as the world’s largest democracy boasts of over 100 billionaires (consistently ranking in the top five with the likes of the United States, China and Germany), one in five Indians is poor and an estimated 27 crores citizens (out of the 130 crores) live below the poverty line, lacking basic sanitation, healthcare, education and drinking water. However, compassion alone cannot be the primary driver of a solution. Building a sustainable social delivery model, not just a portfolio of projects, driven by a common purpose, has called for investments in building a talent pipeline, strengthening governance mechanisms and a robust operational backbone. Our approach to philanthropy - providing risk capital to promising ideas and incubating them to achieve scalable results - has provided a new model for this sector in India. Indeed, change is permanent. So is transformative impact. Today, as 2018 draws to a close, we believe development is the new normal. We believe that considerable positive change can occur when we collaborate with like-minded partners and nurture projects that are scalable, ensuring a long-term impact. We are focused on transforming the life chances in the most backward of India’s districts, universal primary education, empowering women, democratising healthcare and improving access to safe drinking water. Not just information, but this is also the age of transparency. The brisk clean-up of the sector has brought to the fore an earnest and accredited brood of social delivery organizations. The history of goodwill today is powered by innovation, social sector projects of yesteryears are life-improvement must-be-done public policy essentials -- the muscle behind nation-building has acquired fresh velocity. This transformative approach is now a magnet for the development-inclined and an approvable approach for the youth -- discerning, diffident or depairing. Our decadal journey in the focus areas of education, healthcare, drinking water solutions and youth empowerment has swept up a remarkable number of statistics in its unhesitating march -- 22 states, xxxx beneficiaries. The one which we cherish the most, however, is the infinite and incandescent circle of goodness. Keeping the teachings of the Bhagvad Gita at the core, Piramal Foundation’s mission is to create sustainable positive impact and improve the life chances of the underserved and unserved population of India. Towards this, we innovate and develop the best solutions that are replicable, have high impact and will transform India’s economic potential. We are driven by purpose. Together let us transform India. #AaoBadleinBharat.
