Based in the UK, we have teams in Africa and Asia who have local knowledge and insight into the relevant issues. We forge connections that create impact and support the scaling of innovative projects. Pepal was founded in 2009 with support from Fondation Hoffmann.
We are a charitable group, based in the United Kingdom, comprised of Pepal Foundation and its wholly owned trading subsidiary Pepal Ltd. All profits from Pepal Ltd will be returned to Pepal Foundation to be used for charitable purposes.
The Pepal tree is the longest-living tree in the South Asian sub-continent and can survive for over a thousand years. The tree is sacred to the followers of Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism; Siddhartha Buddha was sitting under a Pepal tree when he was enlightened.
