India Foundation for Humanistic Development (IFHD) came into being as a response to the situation of food landscape crisis, depleting water availability and ground water contamination, increasing pesticide residues, genetically modified foods, changing weather patterns, and low returns, causing farmers to leave agriculture to migrate to cities.
IFHD aims to provide solutions to the above challenges in the most effective way through platforms that act like a drawing force to bring together different resources and stakeholders and enable transformation on the ground.
It acts as an enabler for providing services across the following domains:
It rolled out and executed the ProCIF (Producer Entrepreneurship Catalyst and Incubation Facility) programme with the aim to provide customized handholding and technical assistance to small and marginal farmers in India to collectivize, register Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs), and operate as self-reliant enterprises. ProCIF is a social innovation programme currently present in 9 Indian States, which seeks to transform asset poor Producer Organisations into commercially viable, sustainable, socially and environmentally responsible enterprises. The ProCIF programme has so far covered 14,000 families.
IFHD was selected to partner International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) for providing technical support to their Leaders for Nature programme in India.
TATA Trusts sanctioned an amount of Rs1.98 crores for two years to the ProCIF programme.
Income Rs2 cr
Expense Rs1 cr
