IIPM leads by example when it comes to Corporate Social Responsibility. IIPM’s CSR initiative is the world’s largest CSR initiative undertaken by any B-School globally. All IIPM students compulsorily as a part of their programme, have to spend two weeks working for GIDF in various slums/villages of India. Therefore just like IIPM students are given the No 1 global exposure amongst all B-Schools in India, they are also given the No 1 social work exposure in India.
Aurobindo Chaudhuri Memorial Great Indian Dream Foundation (GIDF)
The Aurobindo Chaudhuri Memorial Great Indian Dream Foundation (GIDF) is one of the largest and perhaps the most diversified not for profit organization based in New Delhi, India. Modelled as a developmental organization that carries out development projects in remote and inaccessible parts of India and the urban regions alike, we have made a difference to millions of lives across 14 states since our establishment in 2002.
GIDF is a developmental organization with a difference. We integrate various development initiatives together to develop sustainable and self-reliant communities. With a sharp focus on education, health, employment generation and caring for the environment, we have a team of over 150 enthusiasts who work with us to design and implement our projects. We believe that for a disadvantaged community to survive, develop and prosper, providing basic needs of education, health and employment are the key criteria. This belief led us to engineer our flagship projects such as the e-SHIKSHA initiative where we provide IT skills to the youth to better their chances of gaining employment or the TARA project where there is special emphasis on providing a good quality learning and development environment to young children. GIDF’s Mobile Health Outreach programme and projects in partnership with UNICEF, WHO, MPSACS and DSACS have radicalized the way development projects are designed and implemented and we continue to push these boundaries under the support and patronage of individual and corporate supporters.
