About The Organization

Since 2000, Pardada Pardadi Educational Society (PPES) has been improving the lives of females in rural India. Its mission is to empower community women from the poorest sections of society. To do this, we provide free education for girls and job opportunities for women, thereby creating a new generation of self-reliant and educated females who will break the cycle of poverty in the region.

PPES is based in the tehsil (territorial division within a district) of Anupshahar, which is in the Bulandshahar district of the state Uttar Pradesh, India. Bulandshahar is infamous for its poverty, crime, and child marriages. Moreover, it is one of the least educated and literate sections of India.

PPES was founded by Virendra (Sam) Singh, a retired head of DuPont South Asia. Sam grew up in Anupshahar and although he left many years ago, he moved back in 1999 to use his success to uplift his childhood community.

Sam knew that to break the cycle of poverty, he had to first focus on improving the quality of life for the weakest members of this society: rural female children. Female children here are considered an economic and social burden. Forgotten and uneducated, they are forever dependent upon their husbands or male family members for their livelihood. This leads to a cycle of repression, abuse, and neglect that can only be broken with the self-reliance and enlightenment that education brings.

PPES believes that education will break this cycle of violence and poverty. Girls graduate from the school at an age far more appropriate for marriage. Additionally, as a result of the daily stipend program, they have a greater degree of social and financial independence. As such, these girls are able to control their lives to a much greater degree and are not reliant upon a husband for their self-worth. Furthermore, the school teaches the girls about family planning, thereby encouraging the girls to have fewer children at a later age. All of these factors will hopefully contribute to the development of a society in which women are not only tolerated but valued.

How we are helping

PPES is a social and economic empowerment initiative. Most importantly, it attempts to eradicate female discrimination and provide gender equality. This will allow women to have an equal share in the continual growth of their country. To do this, PPES is providing an education that will allow women to become economically dependent and socially enlightened which, in turn, will create a society in which all children will have an opportunity to grow to their fullest potential.

PPES provides girls with a value-based education. However, what makes it unique is that it provides both job guarantees and incentives for families to send their girls to school—not the least of which includes paying each girl ten rupees (about US $0.20) per day of attendance after class five.

PPES has become integrally involved with the surrounding communities in the past three years. From our Rags-to-Pads initiative, to building community hygiene centers and toilets, to distributing solar powered lanterns, PPES is proud to announce what will hopefully be the beginning of a long partnership with the communities of Anupshahar. We firmly believe that while the girls will be able to effect change at a grass roots level, the most effective changes come from working with the girls and larger communities synergistically.
