Bihar Diaspora

Time seems to have stood still in Bihar, and it is the children who are the casualties: 3.8 million in the age group6 to 14 years remain out of school, 59 percent of boys drop out before class 5 for economic reasons, and 8 out of 10 girls do not complete primary school. Fifty-three percent of the population is below the poverty line, and 54 percent of the children are malnourished. Children from Bihar and Jharkhand make up the largest number of runaways, 30 percent of slum dwellers in Delhi are from Bihar, and every eighth illiterate woman lives in Bihar.

Given this background and realizing the need to engage much more in Bihar, revive it, and help in the process of recovery, CII embarked on a Bihar Development Initiative in the beginning of 2004, focusing on education.

Bihar Development Initiative
The Bihar Development Initiative (BDI), a program of CII, which, realizing the need to engage industry in a unique Build Bihar campaign, aims to directly intervene in more active development in Bihar while reviving and helping in the process of social and economic development by evolving a platform for cooperation by the vastly successful and talented Bihari Diaspora. CII is associated through BDI with initiating, coordinating, and assisting volunteer efforts for progress in state social and development parameters.

The concept of BDI was introduced on August 27, 2004, at a meeting with people from Bihar based in Delhi, inviting participation in this social initiative. The response was tremendous, and most of the participants were eager to contribute to their home state.
At the meeting, some fields of intervention were identified and participants indicated their areas of interest. Groups were set up for education, crafts, health, and rural development and agriculture. Since then, many further meetings of the smaller groups have been held and strategies are being evolved.

Commitment to the cause of a developed Bihar, which will offer all its people opportunity and growth.

To bring together all the well-wishers and garner all the resources which will help and make Bihar a vibrant as well as a successful state.

BDI's primary strategy is to build a positive perception of the state while working concurrently at the micro level in education, health, crafts, and rural development and agriculture.
