Wipro Applying thought in schools

Wipro Applying Thought in Schools is Wipro’s social initiative in the area of school education in India. Setup in 2001, this initiative had originated from Wipro’s idea of Good Citizenship, which states/holds/affirms/believes that a corporation’s ‘power to do good’ must manifest in a thoughtful and deliberate set of initiatives towards a social purpose. Education was chosen as the sphere of work because of its potential to be a fundamental enabler of social change. Within education, our focus is on school education.

About

Our strategy is to support civil society organizations engaged in school education to work towards systemic reform in school education. We support organizations to build capacities to engage deeply in issues in school education and work with schools and the larger education system to improve the quality of teaching and learning that happens in schools.

Over the past 15 years, we have supported more than 50 organizations through over 100 educational projects and initiatives in diverse areas of education and built an active network of organizations working in school education across India. See our annual updates to know more about the work we have supported.

Drawing from the experience over these years, we are currently aiming to significantly expand the number of organizations we support in the coming years. We offer organization grants as well as fellowships to individuals to setup education organizations.

Financial initiatives

We support civil society organization to build deeper capacities to work for school education reform in a long-term and sustained manner.

Forums

The annual partners’ forum is a three-day retreat for all partner organizations, held in April/May every year. It has evolved into a unique gathering of the educational community, where various topics of interest and perspectives are discussed and debated. These forums and discussions become a space for our partners and us to explore, reflect and deepen our collective understanding of issues of relevance to education and society.
