Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO)
The Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) is an international network and is a non-profit community service organization for people of Indian origin and in particular for those staying outside India. GOPIO has individual, life members and chapters.
GOPIO was founded at the First Global Convention of People of Indian Origin in New York in 1989. The NRI/PIO community of the Netherlands participated actively in the creation of GOPIO. The first Chairman of GOPIO was from the Netherlands. The membership and the activities of GOPIO Netherlands mainly concentrated in The Hague area.
With an aim to revitalize the activities of GOPIO and to actively involve the Indian Diaspora community in the Netherlands, Drs. Rajindre Tewari took the initiative to start a new chapter of GOPIO in Amsterdam. The GOPIO Amsterdam chapter started functioning from 27th November 2005.
GOPIO Netherlands is an officially registered Dutch Foundation with three chapters and the Women's Council. The three chapters are: Amsterdam Region, Enschede region and Rotterdam region.
