NRIF came into existence in Sept when Deepak & Surbhi Kavadia met our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in Sept 2014 at a Dinner Ceremony in New York just after the historical speech of PM Shri Modi Ji at Madison Square garden. PM Shri Modi Ji magical and inspirational words touched the heart of everyone and there after we promised him to commit ourselves to create this non-profit organization that strives to represent all overseas Indians living across the globe and create a united, safe and secure world. Our Honorable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Pm Shri Modi Ji as well as Our Home Minister of India Shri. Rajnath Singh Ji has personally assured Deepak & Surbhi to support NRI Federation’s cause and we appeal to all Overseas Indians to join hands and collectively work with the current Government not only for the growth and prosperity of India but for overseas Indians as well.NRI Federation was founded as a nonpartisan organization with the Indian Government so that we can not only represent ourselves, but simultaneously resolve the issues that Indians who reside globally are constantly affected by.
NRIs have a lot of potential in terms of intellectual and skill knowledge, donation in kind that can add a lot of value developing these rural areas. These villages are in significant need for infrastructure development for a better quality life. NRI’s have seen potential personal and community development and that expertise and experience can be valuable and instrumental in developing these villages.
NRI Federation also seeks to aid and develop India our motherland, for we must never forget the roots that brought us to become the successful individuals we are today. We are initiating several teams and committees for several programs intending to assist NRIs including Adoption & Donations for Smart Village, Health & Medical Cultural Heritage Fairs, Preserving Vedic Cultural Heritage & Education, Youth Development & Education Program, Disabled & Underprivileged Child Support Program, Senior Center & Programs, Women Empowerment & Safety, etc. These programs are not only for Charity Projects in India but also for NRI Charity Projects in their Residing Countries. 100% of the donations that we collect for NRI Federation will go towards these programs, our administrative and overhead costs will be assumed by our Founder Contribution fund, Committee & Sponsors Contribution and Income generating programs.
As we also know every community has role models who strives and excel in their respective fields by their foresightedness and broader vision. We all see Success and achievements but the hardships, dedication and sacrifice behind the success is unseen.
NRI federation is taking rapid and aggressive steps towards its goal. We have taken initiative for medical fairs and large events will be organized this current year, thereby rapidly expanding our horizons across the globe. Starting with the tri-state area, 6 large events are under planning throughout tri-state community in various locations Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania for the current year, 2015. We welcome organizations and community leaders in these areas to come forward and partner with us thereby helping expand our initiatives as early as possible. We invite everyone to join arms for our accomplishable vision: and that is to unite the NRIs as a powerful, influential force that will lay the foundation for equality and fair treatment of NRI’s in India as well in their Residing Countries. It will only be through our joint and collaborated participation in the organization and dedication to the causes that we will be able to make this goal a reality.
