Rajesh Goyal
The Man Behind Garbage To Garden

Rajesh Goyal, a man of many talents with a vision unmatched. More than anything else, he is a man of Creative Arts and photography. With humble beginnings, Rajesh started as a keen photographer. Talent and hard work, earned him the title of a scholar in BFA and the number 1 position in the Punjab University 1991 batch. In his over two decades of experience as a Specialist in Marketing & Communication and also as a photographer, he worked with clients from almost all around the world such as USA, UK, Holland, Australia, Italy and Germany among others.
“Life feels enriched with myriad experiences but my passion for photography has rewarded me with a new perspective to look at life and the world. It is my mission to impart this knowledge to the upcoming ardent photographers; they too need to look at life with a newer perspective”
- Rajesh Goyal.
With this pledge, it was time to give back to the art and to the country that fetched him worldwide accolades. Rajesh Goyal wasn’t content with being an artist among photographers. Instead, he made it his mission in life to pass on this legacy to the coming generation; to make photography the art of the masses. He believed that one needs to capture precious moments so that they do not slip away from them.
Photography is about love and appreciation; it makes families come together and celebrate life. It is about embracing the beauty of nature. It simply immortalizes life! And this is where the dream of imparting world-class photography education on both regular and online modes started taking shape
In the absence of avenues to learn photography in a mainstream way, Rajesh Goyal began with his regular and unique online courses under the wing of indianinstituteofphotography.com. With an immensely talented team, he set off on the path to make photography accessible to the common man. People from varied walks of life, of different strata, irrespective of gender and age could now easily opt to learn photography from the best. With the exceptional blend of Creative, MARCOM and Entrepreneurial skills of Rajesh Goyal, Indian Institute of Photography has broken barriers. As the no.1 teaching portal for photography, it has successfully completed 70 batches and is still counting. Spanning its network around Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon and now all over India, it has not limited itself but has reached over 31 countries internationally through its online courses.
The use of social media and the advent of Internet have also contributed to this vision of photography in a big way. Innovation indeed has been the most attractive move. Apart from regular courses, the online courses have been accepted with startling success. With great pride it can be said that the vision of Rajesh Goyal has paid off. Everyone can learn the art of photography now sitting in the comfort of their homes, at their convenient timings and can stay connected with the attentive faculty of IIP any time.
“Come and fall in love with the camera; the world awaits you!”
There are indeed miles to go; IIP under the tutelage of Rajesh Goyal has achieved a lot but continues to reinvent itself with the modern times and strives to fulfil its passion- Photography. IIP can boast to be the one and only endeavour in the nation that has united people with their hobby and has revolutionized the concept of teaching photography through its weekend courses. The herculean efforts of Rajesh Goyal and team continue.
His vision has captured the future, the tomorrow that awaits us, a darker tomorrow which needs immediate attention. He has always focused his goals to three key factors: Environment, Education and Culture. Through his vision he has achieved excellence and has started legendary institutions concerning the three sectors and curbing the curse of the same.
He has started IIP Foundation with a grand vision to give back to the nature, to inspire education and to involve in the cultural activities of our society, of our eastern culture. He has encouraged his students to love education by involving innovative ways to teach and making education more appealing to students with one prodigal idea, we call it IIP Foundation. He has inspired them to love the nature to take a step back and contribute towards our collective growth. That’s when it occurred to him.
Garbage to Garden, a vision this vast can only be perceived through the eyes of a genius. Rajesh Goyal, the genius, the true leader, the founder and a wise visionary— It was him who first conceived the idea of a garbage free Noida and thus, one step at a time, a garbage free nation. He truly has the soul of an artist, a creator, an inventor who connected the dots between the various ‘impossibilities’ to culminate into one great possibility- a healthier and hygienic Noida. That’s what Mr. Goyal has taught us to dream about. He has pre-calculated the gigantic mess we are stepping into going forward, he has opened our eyes to the massive health hazards and economical challenges related to Garbage and finally he has motivated us all to join, work for and manifest, THE GREAT INDIAN GARBAGE REVOLUTION under the brainchild of his own Garbage to Garden project.
The brain child of the legendary visionary Mr. Rajesh Goyal, the Founder and Trustee of IIP as well as the Director and Creative Director of Sepia Advertising Pvt. Ltd. Garbage to Garden is an initiative like none other talking about a 360 degree plan for a sustainable lifestyle with absolutely no garbage in landfills and a 100% eco-friendly living in the city of Noida. Our mission is to achieve our goal by 2022. It’s a five years challenge and we have already taken it up with the patronization and inspiration of Mr. Rajesh Goyal, the man behind the movement.
He had it all worked out: The idea, the blue-print, the plan, and the execution. He is one genius of a person with not less than 26 long years of his experience in the advertising and marketing domain with the apt creative background who has a brilliant and intricate mind to plan every step and micromanage every little detail in his domain. He is a perfectionist and with his experience in social work, supporting and patronizing the NGOs, and other reformative actions he drives the dream wheels of his grand endeavours like a master. He is the sole source of inspiration and courage for everyone associated with Garbage to Garden. With his vision and knowledge we sail our boats, to glide in the waters of a great grand ocean, to make the impossible happen, to materialize the GREAT INDIAN GARBAGE REVOLUTION, we rule the waves.

I positively hope that I can do something to help the society become a better place - if not for everyone, at least for the people who live within my social work field and the capacity of endeavor."
His drive to the social work
t takes a very special person with nerves of steel, lots of emotional stability, and a heart of gold to go into social service. There can be no single motivation factor that drives people to social work. Some people may go into social work, because they have been helped by social workers in the past. Others might go into social work for reasons of faith. The principal motivation simply lies in the innate desire to help others and this very motivation drives Mr. Goyal to enter into social work: To uplift the downtrodden by sharing his knowledge and vast experience
To help others with compassion and desire
To empower the underprivileged by imparting professional skills
To facilitate programmes and activities for better livelihoods
To save the girl child and empower women
To work for the causes related to the protection of the planet. Mr. Goyal is of the view that the vicious cycle of poverty and other deep-rooted social discriminations can be broken or wiped out from the society only through the holistic developmental programs and activities for the marginalized sections. He is of the view that the aim of a healthy and flourishing society can be achieved only when the developmental parameters are addressed properly with focus on the equation.


Archana Chharia ( Executive Member )
Educationist & Philanthropist

The Executive Members are an essential part of the governing body of a non-governmental organization (NGO). The decisions that the organization takes and the policies that it executes leave an impact on the people it serves. Therefore, the role of Executive Members in the Governing Body is vitally important. It’s a privilege for IIP Foundation that Mrs. Archana Chharia has graced its Governing Body as an Executive Member.
As a resourceful and highly imaginative Art Educationist, flawlessly trained in a wide array of artistic mediums, Mrs. Chharia possesses a blend of exemplary talents for instilling art appreciation and promoting creativity and open mindedness with her proven ability to maintain a well-disciplined and highly motivated classroom. Her career as a versatile Art and craft Educationist spans over 2 decades in which she has been dedicatedly providing high quality education to the students with commitment to raise the standards of artistic education.
Art of any form is the most interesting, interactive and involving communication, specially the art and craft. The colors, the papers, the waste material, the forms, the shapes, the texture are few raw materials thru which Mrs.Chharia creates wonderful art pieces. Graduated from College of Arts, Delhi in 1994 Mrs.Chharia worked with creative agencies and packaging units of repute. The urge to teach was always her final ambition and thus served schools for more than 18 years.

She makes a very smart use of hands-on approach to help children understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thinking skills making them prepared for success later in life.
“This definition of art may seem quite broad; however at the elementary level, art begins with drawing some curly or crossed lines on the paper (or walls). My aim is to introduce students with the fundamentals of art philosophy and the Basics of art. Once the students are clear about the philosophy and ideas behind art creation, they can set their own art approach towards all objects”. - Archana Chharia

It is significant to add that he has wide network all over India and abroad.
Settled in East Delhi and engaged in various social activities, he could create a distinct niche for himself within a short span of time of his debut in the social arena. His ardent aspiration to establish a noble path and kindle a new light aiming at the welfare and progress of the masses in the country ultimately led him to form a unique organization on 8th August 2006 under the name and style of CONFEDERATION OF COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATIONS OF INDIA with a view to work in tandem with the Government for equitable economic development and alleviation of poverty.
