Why Trust PaPa?
 
India has the largest population of youth who have been rightly termed as engines of growth of the country. It is also a fact that a large section among them come from socially weak and economically poor layers of the society. They are still not being able to explore and exploit many opportunities which are available to the more advantaged youth because of lack of financial support from their families. Due to this they cannot contribute to the society in the way others can.

A group of like-minded friends got together and thought of these issues. As majority of the trustees of the Trust come from an academic background they are aware of these realities, and of the hardships that many students face due to lack of financial assistance and vocational guidance regarding their career choices and opportunities. If this assistance can be provided to them at a stage which is a very crucial phase in their lives, their life-paths can be constructively altered.

Trust PaPa has been conceived with the aim of helping, guiding and motivating students who come from these weaker and deprived sections of the society in various ways, primarily through financial aid and professional guidance. The Trust has started its activities with ‘A Rupee A Day’ scheme whereby college students have been encouraged to donate a rupee a day to the Trust which will be used to sponsor less privileged students. Even though this amount may seem to be individually quite meager, when pooled it becomes a sum which can change a needy student’s life by helping him/her with his/her education. While education can change a person’s life, the experience of helping someone do so, itself is a life changing experience. The idea is to teach the students that even small contribution/savings can make a difference. The Trust will be launching similar programme for professionals and salaried people soon.

The country is facing similar challenges in the field of environment which plague the rest of the world. Problems regarding climate change, ozone layer depletion, global warming, water shortage, increasing salinity ingress, overuse and possible depletion of energy sources, and ecological degradation pose significant threat to the society. The Trust believes that it is important to not only create wide awareness about these issues, but also take steps at the level of the individual and society to mitigate these problems and reduce their adverse impact. The energy within the youth can be channelised towards such activities.

India is known for its medical tourism but still a lot needs to be done to create an environment of healthy thinking and living, which the Trust feels can begin at the level of the individual. Alternative therapies and traditional knowledge of yoga have proved to be beneficial in even the gravest of ailments. First aid knowledge and competency can still save many lives. The Trust aims to provide services and extend care to the mentally and physically handicapped, and the sick, and elderly through a network of volunteers, dispensaries, emergency ambulance services, pathological labs and clinics.
