The Pipal Foundation

SLA’s sister charity, creating sustainable futures

Central to its role as a funder and capacity builder, SLA aspires to work with its past, current and future partners towards their independence and sustainability.

To achieve this goal, SLA has constituted a sister charity, The Pipal Foundation (TPF).TPF are partnering with the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School for Veterinary Studies in this innovative initiative.

The main aim of The Pipal Foundation, through a private limited company in India, is to develop a sustainable and socially responsible dairy farm to serve as a centre of excellence and to benefit the community in which it will operate in India. It is the intention that this will provide sustainable funding for Indian grassroots organisations and will also provide an additional source of funding for SLA’s partner projects.

On behalf of The Pipal Foundation, the dairy farm will be operated by an Indian company,
set up by the Indian partners in the project, who will oversee the implementation and
management of the initiative.

The farm location was in the process of being confirmed in early 2020 but the advent of the coronavirus pandemic has led to that element of the work being put on temporary hiatus.
