Peepul is an education-focused non-profit. We dream and work towards creating an education system in India that enables and supports every child to realise their potential.
We work closely with national, state, and local governments to transform government schools and government systems. Currently, we work with governments in Delhi and Madhya Pradesh, to meaningfully have impact across 300,000 teachers and 9 million children, across 100,000+ schools.
We have received many accolades for our work, including the Commonwealth Education Awards for Innovation (from ~2500 applications across 32 countries). One of the schools we deeply support in Delhi was shortlisted as the Top 10 Schools in the world for Innovation. Our work has also been featured in reports and publications by the Education Development Trust, the UN and the national Ministry of Education, India. The impact of our work has also been verified by third-party assessments.
Within a period of three years, we have grown tremendously to now reach a team size of 150 employees, across the geographies in which we operate. We are fortunate to have many supporters fuel our growth journey such as the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, Mulago Foundation, Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, SBI Foundation, The/Nudge Foundation, Dovetail Impact Foundation, Maitri Trust, Amazon India, Bank of America India (full list on website). Impact at scale is the core of our work and this approach has been profiled in the media by Business World, The Economic Times, Nexus of Good Foundation, FICCI, Niti Aayog, among others.
We are a restless, resilient, and reflective organisation. We aim high, innovate, work smart, work as a team, and use rigorous research to inform our work.
With regard to our talent, we work towards keeping our people first and offer a compelling compensation and benefits package, to ensure our high-quality talent is appreciated and remunerated competitively.
Peepul has partnered with the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) to strengthen learning outcomes, through the Exemplar Schools as well as a Teacher Training and Development programme. Through this partnership, we have also developed a deep understanding of the municipality context, education landscape, and administrative support structures at the ground-level.
In the Exemplar School Network, we test, demonstrate, and continually evolve our high-engagement classroom practice toolkit, supporting 1200 children from the poorest families in Delhi. These innovation labs of ours are also bright spots for the country’s government school system, with 85%+ of our students meeting or exceeding grade-level expectations. They showcase the excellence that is possible in the public school system, at a cost model comparable to normal government expenditure.
Building on the learnings from the schools, we are building the Capacity of Teachers and Education Officials (Parivartan Programme), Delhi, India. Specifically, we are supporting the teacher capacity building of 2,800 teachers across ~600 Delhi primary schools in partnership with the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi), to build their capacity to implement the toolkit in their schools and classrooms. We use a three-pronged strategy which includes: (1) bite-sized modular training sessions, (2) professional learning communities, and (3) in-classroom observations and support to build the capacity of teachers.
We are looking for a Project Manager to play a critical role in our Technology in Governance workstream, who would work across our MCD System transformation programme in Delhi to support the design of Technological reforms and collaborate with the MCD IT team to build technology tools to strengthen education ecosystems.
