Be the change you want to see in the world - Gandhiji
Association for India's Development (AID) is a worldwide volunteer-driven movement. AID started in University of Maryland at College Park in 1991 when some graduate students of Indian origin decided to make a difference to lives of unpriviliged sections of society in India. Since then, the movement has spread to more than 50 universities in the US and India. Over the past years AID has undertaken numerous projects across the length and breadth of the country.
Delhi is home to most of the central government machinery and therefore a chapter in Delhi is not only strategically important but also important for the growth and effectiveness of the movement.
AID Delhi also aims to act as a conduit between different AID projects and Delhi based technical organizations like IIT Delhi, Center for Science and Environment, Development Alternatives etc. essentially organizations that have excelled in one or many issues related to holistic development.
Compassion wherever there is suffering
Conviction that the compassion is strong enough to eliminate suffering
Courage to make this conviction a reality
This is AID...
