AID is an effective top international organization as rated by Charity Navigator. We seek to create self sustainable development.
AID addresses underlying causes by using powerful tools to bring out change. We campaign against corruption. We are constructive and creative with our various projects. We recognize interconnected problems, and support holistic solutions that address the root of the problems, not the symptoms. Our success stems from our local-export support, people that come in for a few years and others than have become Jeevan Sathis (life-time) volunteers. We have built relations with reputable NGO's and people's movements in India. Our three pillars of Sangharsh, Nirmaan, and Seva have evolved over the years. Working closely with people in India we stand by them in their struggles and efforts to find sustainable solutions to their multi-faceted problems.
We are not religiously or politically affiliated.
