India Vision Foundation (IVF) is a 24 year old voluntary, nonprofit – governmental organization born out of the Ramon Magsaysay award (equivalent to Asia Nobel peace prize) conferred to Dr. Kiran Bedi, India’s first lady police officer. Foundation aims to contribute towards a crime free society by initiating reformation programs for prison inmates and reintegration opportunities to released inmates for the reduction in recidivism/reoffence; also facilitate welfare programs for their children/children of prison inmates to save them from becoming victims of their parental incarceration. With a mission to Save The Next Victim the foundation runs its five major programs: Inside Prison Project; Education for Children of Inmates; Training for Prison Officials; E- redressal & Grievances & Rural Development. IVF presently is working with prison of 3 states: New Delhi, Haryana & Uttar Pradesh.
Foundation’s reformation activities in every prison are based on a 3S model of Shiksha (Education), Sanskar(Value Education ) and Skills (Training and Development).This helps to rebuild the lives of the prison inmates inside the prison. IVF aims to transform lives of children through its Children of Vulnerable Families Project (CVF) from the age of 5 years onwards. This is a process from “Cradle to Careers’ for the young lives from incarcerated families where the foundation gives them HOPE, and helps to bring about a progressive change through positive reinforcement, education and instill values in them to help them become responsible citizens- an asset to society in their later years.
Foundation aims to nurture these lives by providing them:
· Boarding and Lodging
· Books and Stationery
· Exposure Trips
· Mother and Child Meet every quarter(this includes transportation from school to the prison)
· Birthday Celebrations
· Counsellor Fees
· Transportation Fees.
Total expenses per year per child is INR 40,000/- or USD $635
The foundation looks forward to extend support to 50 children through this campaign.
