In line with our vision to be the ‘most respected company in the financial services space’, we recognize the importance of contributing to and sustaining social transformation. With this end in mind, we have setup the IIFL foundation, which will work for the support and upliftment of the underprivileged sections of society.|
The IIFL Foundation focuses on specific areas of need such as healthcare and education, the foundation will screen and select institutions and developmental agencies which are working in these domains and will provide necessary aid to improve the lives of the underprivileged and help them in achieving their potential.
Some of the activities undertaken by the IIFL Foundation:
We sponsored an Eye and Dental
camp, from Jan. 31st to Feb. 3rd, 2012, conducted by
expert Doctors and Surgeons from the Bhaktivedanta
Foundation in the village of Barsana near Mathura.
Pandharpur Medical Camp
We also sponsored the
Pandharpur Medical Camp, held by the Bhaktivedanta
Hospital in July 2011 at Pandharpur. Free medical
treatment and food was given to approximately 60,000
pilgrims who had come to Pandharpur during Ashadi Ekadashi. The pilgrims were treated for fever, injuries,
fractures, gastroenteritis, myalagia, headache, epilepsy,
malaria, respiratory infections etc, during the camp.
Blood Donation Drives
We organise blood
donation drives at camps all across India. Over 800
employees have participated in these camps so far.
Adopt a Village
To expand our initiatives, we are now
exploring the best ways to take education in rural and
tribal areas beyond the key basics of ‘abc’. In our ‘Adopt
a Village’ scheme we hope to impart knowledge about
water conservation, waste management, sanitation,
corruption prevention, and many other essential fields.
