A team of young social entrepreneurs, having left our lucrative jobs, came together and formed Odisha Rising Foundation (ORF) to advance the growth stories of Odisha to the globe.
ORF is a social enterprise that incubate entrepreneurs and innovators. It helps the mediocre communities of Odisha to be self-reliant and autonomous through innovative projects and technological intervention so that everyone may live a life of self-worth and dignity through direct intervention and partnerships.
ORF partner with different stakeholders to curate, connect, catalyse and communicate the idea of new Odisha that is emerging beyond its big cities and facilitate the change process by focusing on rural & tribal development. It is currently working in thirty districts, having its Head Office in Bhubaneswar and Zonal Offices in Sambalpur & Koraput respectively. ORF is informed by the Sustainable Development Goal(SDG) and NITI Aayog, thus committed to make this planet a better place to live in for ALL.
We are an impact-driven organisation focused on scalable & sustainable solutions for social impact.
We partner with local Administration, CSR, Corporations, Philanthropists, Foundations, Social Organisations, Universities, FPOs, SHGs & Cooperatives – achieve their social impact goals effectively and maximise the return on social investment. We offer end- to-end support covering research, training, strategy CSR consulting, , programme management, impact assessment, social audit, talent solutions, direct implementation and more.
Our focus is on solving critical socio-economic problems locally through solutions that are: S.P.I.E.R.S. – Sustainable, Practical, Innovative, Effective, Replicable, Scalable.
At the heart of our work is our ability to collaborate with companies and organisations and leverage the strengths and capabilities of all involved stakeholders to maximise the impact locally.
ORF’s operations are active across all the districts of Odisha with its partners and village volunteers.
We can’t bring a change alone therefore we collaborate with local communities and design together the action plan for a sustainable ownership and impact.
