Vivek Canada is a registered Canadian non-profit.
To improve health, sanitation and education services, we
work with villagers in remote and disadvantaged regions of
Uttar Pradesh, India by encouraging their participation
in rural development projects.

In Sanskrit, vivek means knowledge and/or wisdom.

Our Story

In 2006, Vivek Canada became an incorporated and registered charitable society in British Columbia, Canada. The Foundation member volunteers at that time, nearing retirement from their professions in Canada, India and the U.K., wanted to help those less fortunate. 

As an experienced professional group, we are committed to an integrated and grass-roots approach towards rural development projects.

We believe that vibrant rural economies are vital not only to eradicate poverty but also in the foundation for global peace, security and quality of life
for all.

Our Accomplishments

Since 2006:

We have 4 elementary schools in Puranpur Tehsil, Pilibhit District, U.P. India in operation: Dhaka Chant, Khirkia Bargadia, Ramcot, and Katkwara.

1120 boys and girls have completed elementary schooling.

Since 2013, we have subsidized 250 solar lamps.

Our Goal
