Bihar Government has set up Bihar Foundation to connect and leverage the large network of Nonresident Biharis who are willing to contribute towards development of Bihar.
The main objectives of Bihar Foundation is :
• To provide a forum for and to facilitate communication and interaction between Non-Resident Biharis (NRB’s) and the state of Bihar.
• To facilitate the participation of Bihari diaspora and other Indians in the development of the state of Bihar by involving them in the process of state building and by leveraging their strengths and resources in the fields of Agriculture and allied sectors, Agro based industries, Industries, Tourism, Education, Power, Social welfare, Medical and Healthcare sectors, Infrastructure and other areas of development.
• To unite and form Self Help Groups / local chapters of NRB’s in areas which have substantial Bihari migrant population and to aid them in developing the state of Bihar through strategic interventions in various fields.
• To take steps for improving the vocational training and skill capacity of migrant Bihari labour and to improve their wages and conditions of work.
• To set up libraries, reference and information centres and systems, promotion centres and bodies, demonstration and common service centres relevant to the objectives of the Foundation.
• To provide inputs and suggestions to the GoB regarding policies and schemes designed for the development of the state and to create such funds and endowments as necessary for their implementation.
The foundation has initiated various chapters in different parts of India and abroad. It’s a great initiative for Non resident Bihari people to come together and join the forum and work together to promote investment and collaborate with state for various initiatives.
