Resolving to fulfil its mission to be a responsible corporate citizen, the ICICI Group established the ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth (ICICI Foundation) in early 2008, to lend its efforts and focus to promote inclusive growth amongst low-income Indian households.
We believe our fundamental challenge is to create a just society where everyone is afforded the equal opportunity to develop and grow. With this end in mind, the ICICI Foundation is dedicated to making India's economic growth more holistic, allowing every individual to participate in and benefit from the growth process.
The foundations of the ICICI Group's approach towards human and social development were established with the Social Initiatives Group (SIG), a non-profit resource group within ICICI Bank, in 2000.
Instead of building departments within a large, monolithic foundation, we have chosen to collaborate with and foster independent, responsive organisations, each equipped with valuable expertise in one of the five areas that we believe are the essential elements for inclusive growth: primary health, elementary education, comprehensive access to financial services, a strong civil society and environmental sustainability.
