Over the past 20 years, OFI has chosen to create partnerships with quality Indian Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), recognized for their professionalism.
The relationships that unite OFI with these NGO partners are long-term relationships built on trust. OFI and NGOs coordinate on the project methodology, the consistency of the actions carried out and the relevance of the intervention methods chosen.

Vonisha Service Foundation
