  • Bharatpur

    Operations of Lupin Foundation began with the establishment of a center at Bharatpur in Rajasthan on 2nd October 1988, which gradually spread to the other areas of the state and beyond. Lupin had no business interest in Bharatpur, but only to address its backwardness as well as to tap its potential to adopt and accept innovative solutions and evolve sustainable, dynamic district development model.

    Since its initiation, the center focused on extreme poverty to date and was able to lift considerable number of BPL families above poverty line in the district through this poverty eradication approach. During the course of action, villages adopted by Lupin Foundation have turned into livelihood hubs with bustling rural entrepreneurial activity. Bharatpur, which never heard of bee keeping before Lupin intervention, has now emerged as the second most honey producing district in India. Building on the years of operation, the centre was able to develop distinct models of livelihood development and the district development. These two models have wide potential of replicating in other backward areas. The beginning of the centre was very humble. In the first year of operation, the centre covered 33 villages. Today, it is the biggest in terms of outreach which covers 1,836 villages, 14 blocks and 5 districts.
