Our Project Processes


Supporting projects is the primary activity of an AID chapter. The project review process is very intensive. We usually receive project proposals directly from non-governmental organizations (NGO) in India or through our full-time, part-time volunteers or directly from the NGO.

The review process involves, among other things, establishing the credibility of the NGO and understanding the issues that grassroots organizations are trying to tackle in India. A visit by an AID volunteer is a compulsory step before approval of any project. This visit is very essential in understanding ground reality and also in building a working long-term relationship with the NGO.

In AID, we look at the NGOs we work with as our partners rather than focusing on a charity mode. The NGO usually comes up with its original ideas and we act as facilitator and catalyst of change.

We believe that it is important to focus on holistic development to bring about change for the most marginalized in India:

  • Education
  • Livelihood Generation
  • Community Empowerment
  • Women's Empowerment
  • Environment
  • Agriculture
  • Human Rights
  • Public Health
  • Social Justice
