Ma Foi Consulting Solutions Limited, a subsidiary of Ma Foi Management Consultants Limited, bagged the prestigious Human Resources project with United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Jharkhand. Among the several projects undertaken by UNICEF in India, one of the projects is providing support to the state Government of Jharkhand for 8 of their flagship programmes that include Child Development & Nutrition programme, Education, Child Environment, Children and HIV/AIDS, Social Policy, Advocacy and Behaviour Change Communication programmes, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Child Protection and Monitoring & Evaluation. UNICEF is committed to work on human development initiatives across the world especially in developing countries like India. Ma Foi's scope of work in this project includes meeting UNICEF's HR management and consulting needs.
Finding qualified professionals in Jharkhand for these flagship programmes has been a challenge given the current state of affairs in the state. UNICEF India felt the need to hire a Human Resource management firm for its manpower and engaged Ma Foi which won this contract amongst stiff competition from other leading industry players in this space. Speaking about the project bagged, Ajay Mallapurkar, CEO, Ma Foi Consulting Solutions Limited said, 'We are very proud of our association with an international organization like UNICEF and look forward to playing a key role in providing strategic and structural support for their developmental projects.' He added, 'There is a need for more such collaboration between the private and social sectors that will help bolster the community development initiatives in the country.'
