Global India Fund (GIF) is a U.S.-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization aimed at inspiring philanthropy and service across the globe to support innovative programs and interventions in India. GIF raises awareness and supports health, education, and livelihood programs through partnerships with individuals, corporations, and government agencies. In addition, GIF has been implementing global communication campaigns to raise awareness and spark action for issues related to girls and women in India.
In 2015, GIF co-funded and co-produced the Girl Rising India film and campaign with corporate, media, and celebrity partners including Priyanka Chopra and Freida Pinto. As part of this campaign, GIF also collaborated on the We Dream, We Rise social media campaign reaching 25 million people, and Girl Rising India’s ‘gender-sensitization program’ in over 250 schools across India.
Most recently, GIF has joined forces with the Samhita-CGF to launch the Together for India Campaign to support immediate healthcare needs during the COVID-19 crisis (medical supplies, oxygen concentrators), and to implement a vaccination program to ensure vaccines are equitably distributed among low-income and marginalized communities.
