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.
- CHIP Kolkata was founded in 1997 by a group of doctors, educationists and industrialists with a common goal of serving the society and improving the quality of lives of needy children and their families.
- CHIP Mumbai was launched on the 5th of February 2004 in partnership with the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) school system. The chapter was founded by Dr. Sunita Banerji, Ms. Poonam Jaju, Ms. Ruby Bhatiya and Ms. Kunicka Sadanand in an effort to work with these schools that cater to some of the most disadvantaged groups in Mumbai
- CHIP Nagpur was started by Mr. Sukesh and Sudha Gandhi in 2013. Since its inception, we have achieved great milestones in afforestation, education, rural welfare, and ecosystem restoration.
