Bansidhar & Ila Panda Foundation (BIPF) was established in 2011 as the social development arm of Indian Metals and Ferro Alloys Limited (IMFA). BIPF believes that transforming individual lives, amongst the most marginalized communities in Odisha, will have a cascading impact on the regional development of the state. Working in close collaboration with the central and state government, local and international organizations and other strategic partners; BIPF drives results in five core areas of transformation: healthcare, livelihood, education, water & sanitation, and advocacy and appreciation.
The foundation’s approach is built on collaborating with partners, embedding community ownership in all programs, focusing on women and youth, changing mindsets by driving behavioural change communication. This approach is integrated into all the projects.
