  • Bharatpur

    The story of the Lupin Foundation starts with the Bharatpur Centre. The Lupin Foundation was established at Bharatpur in Rajasthanon 2ndOctober 1988, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. In time, its operations spread across India. The Bharatpur centre of the Lupin Foundation pioneered the approaches, strategies and policies followed by the rest of the centres under the Foundation. It developed a replicable livelihood model. It made Bharatpur a leading honey exporting district in India by identifying the suitability of bee-keeping and, in a venturesome-mode, introducing and promoting it. Now the centre has a holistic rural development programme and it still leads the Lupin centres by example, innovation and building models.

    Making Bharatpur a poverty-free district has been a long-term target. Different strategies have been adopted over time to achieve this goal. These include agricultural development, improving breed quality to boost livestock productivity, making the youth employment ready or rural entrepreneurs, forming and strengthening women SHGs and making health services available in the remote areas.
