It is this simple, yet empowering philosophy that determines the essence of DEEP Foundation.
What had started out as a one woman's dream has now taken the shape of a full-fledged movement that pulls several like minded people and organizations together.
In June 2009, DEEP Foundation ((Development through Empowerment and Education Programs) was established with a view to empower the underprivileged of our society with a deeper understanding and application of what they were taught in their schools, enabling them to imbibe the benefits of education in the true sense.
We aspire to incubate villages and work towards their overall economic and social development. As a central project coordinating agency, DEEP is poised to steer integrated growth amongst the weaker sections of society. We see ourselves leveraging the strengths of several other developmental agencies, citizens, bureaucracy and politicians to help achieve our goals.
In order to develop self sustaining societies, we see a large part of our work in the sphere of education—i.e awareness sessions, basic education, practical tools and techniques.
We try as far as possible never to assist in currency form, but rather prefer to investigate what people, especially children, need and to deliver that item directly into their hands. This avoids many of the pitfalls that exist in the world of giving.
No member of DEEP Foundation receives financial gain of any kind but the true satisfaction of knowing that, at the very least, we are attempting to make a difference.
Our team consists of like minded professionals from the Corporate sector, driven by a common passion of bringing forth inclusive growth in our society.
