Who We Are
SCIENCE INDIA FORUM, BAHRAIN (SIF Bahrain) is a voluntary, non-profit organization formed by professionals in the fields of education, science and technology; businessmen and philanthropists to promote science among students in Bahrain. SIF Bahrain operates under the patronage of by The Embassy of India, Bahrain and is supported by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
India faces critical challenges as a nation in its march towards a welfare state. Considering the nature of the challenges which are so unique, only rapid strides in the sector of science and technology, in resonance with India’s heritage can meet those challenges. In this context National Science Movement, India (popularly known as VijnanaBharati), a science movement with patriotic spirit has a greater role to play. It is an NGO supported by Government of India. It was founded in 1982 by a group of eminent scientists from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. VijnanaBharati has already earned its niche as a trendsetter in imparting knowledge to the young generation across India and lately abroad.
SIF Bahrain hope to foster scientific excellence by capitalising on the scientific & technological synergy of India and the Middle-East.We firmly believe in the Indian thought, that the whole world is one family and serving humanity is the primary responsibility of each individual. We sincerely believe and aspire that the young population of this great nation of Bahrain, should benefit from science and technological interventions in every walks of life. We are also sure that the knowledge shared by India and the valuable contributions of Indian children would considerably aid Bahrain in its onward march.
