Our Mission: Lending a helping hand to those in need.

Friends of Bijnor, Inc is a charitable organization. As humanitarians our efforts support the Good News of the Gospels in the Catholic Diocese of Bijnor in Uttarakhand, India. Our mission is to help relieve the poverty and suffering of some of the poorest people in the world. The Diocese spreads over the Himalayan ranges of India. Founded as an Apostolic Exarchate on March 1972 by the papal bull “Beatorrum Apostolorum” of Pope Paul VI, the Diocese of Bijnor and its religious priests and sisters serve one of the poorest regions in India.

In our own humble way, Friends of Bijnor help to ease the burden of men, women and children for whom daily life is a struggle to survive by raising financial resources in the USA. Over the years, our contributions have built a well to provide local communities clean drinking water, constructed a home for abandoned, handicapped youths; and provided support for children go to school or learn a trade, among others.

You are invited to become a partner and join our efforts either with a one-time donation or a yearly membership in our organization. Friends of Bijnor (FOB) was incorporated in the State of New York in 1990 as a Charitable Organization. In 1991 FOB became an American tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of IRS.
