About Us

Trivenikalyan Foundation (TKF) was established by Shri Balvant Bhai Parekh of Pidilite Industries in the year 1981. Its basic objective is to ensure the region's socio-economic upliftment via its natural and human resource development. It concentrates on socially responsible, technologically appropriate, economically viable and environmentally sensitive development for the benefit of the community. The projects are executed in collaboration with community, NGOs with similar vision and government agencies.

Our activities include water management, agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry and skill development etc.. With major emphasis on community upliftment with several livelihood interventions, we try to reach to as many farmers as possible to assist them in adopting latest techniques and methods of cropping, irrigating, pest management and storage management.

We work with well known experts belonging to their respective field of interest and act as a node between the farmer and the agency for creating impacts by implementation, monitoring and evaluation processes. Extra ordinary farmers’ case studies are used by us to motivate several others in and around them to constantly boost their spirits and morale and lift their risk taking abilities to go for technical advancements in farming.
