The Parivartan Foundation for Socio Economic Development is a Non Profit Organization registered under the Indian Societies Act by a group of committed students who have a passion to be changemakers and a vision for a better India.
The Foundation aims at empowering people to effect a wholistic change. By combining the dynamism of youth and the knowledge of the more experienced, it aims to make a sustainable difference at the grassroot level using market driven approaches.
It all started when five friends at Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani decided to put this quote to action. With two other like-minded individuals, we started our journey with an aim to bring the energy and dynamism of youth to development of villages.
Our present project won the prestigious Goldman Sachs Social Entrepreneurship Fund, for which two of our founding members were eligible. This award triggered our energy and ignited our passion for community service. Our current area of operation is a group of 9 villages in the Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, India. These are the lanka villages located in the delta of the River Krishna.
Our working philosophies make us unique. We believe that development projects need a strong receiving mechanism and have two guiding principles:
Treat people/communities you are serving as equal partners in progress and not as beneficiaries.
Teach someone how to fish rather than give them some fish.
These principles make our projects well oriented with the needs of the people and ensure effective utilization of all our resource.
Parivartan Foundation has various programs for different groups in the society. Primarily focusing on development, it also has well defined welfare activities. For farmers, productivity and income improvement are the goals. For youth and students, exposure to new methods of teaching, increased awareness about opportunities and access to financial resources for continuing education are the priority areas. For women and elderly, access to quality yet affordable healthcare is an issue. Widows also face destitution owing to circumstances.
