Ishanya Foundation (IsFon)
Founded in 2006, Ishanya Foundation (IsFon) is a registered Trust under the provisions of the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950. What started as a small project has today been transformed into a driven Non-Governmental Organisation that practices and promotes inclusiveness and provides solutions and opportunities to the socially and economically weaker sections.
IsFon has been driven around the conviction that ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’. IsFon empowers individuals through employable skills that generate sustainable livelihoods, enhancing financial and emotional independence.
Headquartered in Pune, IsFon conducts several empowering initiatives across urban and rural areas of Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Foundation’s urban initiatives comprise Vocational Skills Development Project (VSDP), Livelihood Enhancement through Entrepreneurship Development (LEED), Income Generation Program (IGP), Muskaan, the Yellow Ribbon NGO & Artisan Fair (YRNF) and Ishanya Restoration & Exhibition of Art, Culture & Handicrafts (IREACH). IsFon’s rural initiatives comprise Wadi Project, Dairy Development Project, Vocational Skill Development, and Community Development & Social Welfare (CDSW), among others.
IsFon adopts a systematic approach to the development and execution of its projects. The team conducts extensive assessment study regularly. The objective of this research is to collect primary and secondary sources of information. The findings from these research activities form the basis of IsFon’s impact initiatives. To expand its reach and add further value to its offerings, IsFon also associates with other credible NGOs and international social organisations, and also with the Central and State Governments.
