Wipro Cares – a not-for-profit trust is an earnest initiative by Wiproites to make compelling and channelized contributions in
the areas of education, community service projects and social development, continually.
By acquiring 18 new projects and 15 new partners across different domains of work (education, environment, primary healthcare and disaster rehabilitation) the year 2014-15 has proved to be a significant time period for Wipro Cares. All this was possible because of the active participation and engagement that we received from Wiproites.
