Work and Achievements
CHIP, a Registered Society for supporting needy children and young adults, is a charity with a vision. Our vision states that we provide a robust platform to give children and their families an EDGE – to Educate, Develop, Grow and Empower.
Since its inception in 1997 in Kolkata, CHIP has expanded its reach to other Indian cities. We now have active chapters in Mumbai and Nagpur and a new chapter is opening in Delhi.
Our mission is to enable innovative change in the lives of children. Our focus is on learning and skills and helping foster good health, leadership, and choice. We are driven by a common goal of imparting quality education and overall growth to children and young adults and also taking care of their basic health and vocational needs.
Since our inception, we have constantly endeavored to implement a transformative model of ‘Total Child Care’, which involves improving the infrastructure of the schools, developing a more child-centric and innovative curriculum, and improving student health.
CHIP engages government, corporate and individuals in India and all over the world for constant support and expansion.
