Our Story

Dealing with the challenges of globalization today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. GLOBAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION INDIA emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the research and educational activities by organizing academic activities in the form of seminars, conferences and workshops, publishing research journals, books and other relevant materials on the one hand and engaging in action projects  related to health, education and helping the poor community both in the rural and urban areas on the other. Established in 2018, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
