PP Foundation was established in February 18, 2011 as a tribute to Late Prajapati Prasai, popularly known as PP. The Foundation was established with the main intention of keeping alive aspirations of PP particularly in developing and promoting the education and tourism sector of Nepal.
PP Prasai, born in the eastern hills of Athrai, Terhathum by profession was a tourism entrepreneur (Owner:Natraj Group of Companies including Natraj Tours & Travels). But he has left an equally strong impression of being a true social entrepreneur by touching lives of people in need and inspiring people to achieve their dreams. He was a man with a vision. A vision for the good of human being, of changing lives of the people for the better and contributing to the development of the nation.
PP’s sudden death in an air accident on 5th of September, 1999 left many of his dreams to serve the people in need unfulfilled. Therefore, to give continuity to his dreams to serve the people in need and his works much appreciated by all the Foundation was established.
