Who are we?

For 20 years, OFI has accompanied the sustainable development projects set up by seven Indian NGOs. The OFI team consists of volunteers and is dedicated to the coordination and monitoring of projects and the procurement of research funding. In addition, the team offers volunteer assignments that provide operational support for some key programs.


An “Association” under French law (loi 1901)—created by a group of friends in the Toulon region to support NGO development projects of NGOs in South India. For project selection, OFI relies on Benjamine Oberoi’s expertise in sustainable development. She lives in India since 30 years.

valeursA human-scale team composed of motivated volunteers

All the members of OFI are volunteers. The altruistic dimension of our actions motivates the volunteers joining us. OFI gives them an opportunity to experience project management within an intercultural environment. Volunteers have the chance to work independently and are supported by a competent team. It is an intimate discovery of charming rural populations— fascinating because of their generosity and Indian traditions.
