Pledge 1

CEPTES has taken a Pledge to Bring Change in Education

Even after decades of reforms & government initiatives, a huge number of students couldn’t complete their high-school because of the lack of quality education facilities. This clearly indicates that we need a notable approach to achieve the goals of providing quality education to the children. Availing quality education is the foundation of changing the lives of many. Major progress has been made to achieve the goal of giving quality education, yet India requires major educational reforms. 

Pledge to Bring01

The best part of being in a connected ecosystem like Salesforce is that we always lookout for opportunities to volunteer our time in order to support a cause that can really help the community. This certainly improves our lives, brings us closer to the community, and connects us with people and ideas that really inspire us. Giving it back to the community not only helps us grow as individuals but also makes us realize how we can fit into the world around us. 

As a proud member of the Pledge 1% global movement, we are committed to giving 1% of our Profit, Product, and Time. We often look for different ways to bring change in the society, be it in participating in go green campaigns or setting up community fridges where people can keep their extra food to feed the needy, CEPTES always tried to help the community. 

In a massive country like India, there are various social challenges & nothing is more important than basic access to education or improving the educational standards. Often many of us are intrigued when it comes to learning new things and with growing age, this interest also develops. Education has changed many of our lives and this is the basic right of each & every child. If we see around, there are many children who either do not have the opportunity to avail of the best education or the education they have don’t have the best of the infrastructures. 

It’s always been a motive for us to support to the best of our abilities in order to improve the educational standards, and this was our first step towards our mission. To make education more convenient for the kids in a nearby government school ‘Ramagondanahalli Government High School’, we have taken a pledge to support them. To begin with our mission, this week we had a ‘back to school day’ for some of our employees when we visited the school and spent some time with the kids and the teachers. We tried to understand their challenges & how can we support them.

Pledge to Bring02

In our mission to bring educational reforms, we have provided some study materials as well as stationaries which can help the school in making education engaging for the kids. The motive behind this initiative is, we wish to see a world where there won’t be any hurdles to avail of basic education. Children often need guidance which can help them see there’s always hope for their future. And what all they need in achieving greater heights is a little bit of support & guidance. We will keep on supporting them in the future and will try our best to at least be a small support in reshaping the future of a few children. 

Make a Difference

It’s a great feeling to realize that sometimes even doing the tiniest things can have a huge impact on others. Rather than one-time support, it is important to have a long-term commitment which can really help at least a few young scholars shine. Impactful education initiatives are essential. Together, we can try to make a tremendous difference in the communities.

Community Fridge
General, Pledge 1

CEPTES pledged to give back with an initiative “Feed every hungry soul”

We often wonder “How tough my life is?” But if we look around, there are many people who are facing tougher challenges than us. It is not always about food, shelter or clothing, but also getting the right education to stand on your own feet so that you can offer a helping hand to someone tomorrow. Giving back is not an act, it is a feeling which is beyond words and the biggest reward is the realization that you’ve made a change in someone’s life.


When CEPTES joined the global pledge 1% movement, we had only one thought in our mind, “Let’s try to feed every hungry soul”. There are hundreds of families who go to bed on an empty stomach. Every human deserves food, shelter, and clothing with education & healthcare. So in order to give it back to the community 1% of our time, profit and product, we started an initiative called “Community Fridge“. This initiative is being led by our co-founder Mr. Priyaranjan Panigrahy for CEPTES.


Community Fridge

A community fridge is a small initiative which is enabling allies in and around the Indian city of Bengaluru to join hands in order to offer food to poor and needy people. We have placed a public fridge which have opened an avenue for those having surplus food can keep them inside it. This way we can feed them who are unprivileged without hurting their dignity. Needy people can come and get food from this community fridge. This initiative soon caught the eyes of many local residents and nearby restaurants who are now keeping food inside the fridge. Initially, our community fridge was feeding 20-30 people every day, but with time the number of food donors has significantly increased, and our community fridge is serving around 80-100 people every day. Whenever we see someone needy having food from our community fridge, it gives us great motivation and belief that we are really giving it back.

Community Fridge

Sometimes the tiniest generous act can ignite change and spread a positive impact in the society by offering a revived sense of hope. A small community fridge which started serving food is now offering free books as well as toys to unprivileged kids. Every month, we conduct an event in our office for all our employees, where each one of them contributes their time in collecting food as well as books, clothes, and toys for our community fridge.


We all want to feel that we added value and had some kind of purpose in our lives. Giving back to the community helps us to feel that we’ve helped to mitigate the challenges in somebody else’s life. The potential for empowering others through giving back is tremendous and something that we all need to consider. In coming months, we are planning to contribute more in our pledge 1% initiatives in the fields of education and healthcare. We are hoping that you are inspired to give and contribute to the community in whichever way you want.
