About AID India
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 underprivileged 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.
About AID India - Delhi Chapter
• The Delhi Chapter of AID came into being on a cool 26th
January morning, in the year 2004. The Delhi Chapter and
its various initiatives and projects have since journeyed
down a memorable path.

• AID has touched not only the lives of the
underprivileged, but has also carved a niche out in each
and every volunteer’s heart and soul.

• Delhi is the capital of the country and therefore the Delhi
Chapter is not only strategically important but also vital
for the growth and effectiveness of the movement.

Be the change you want to see in the world - Gandhiji

children, and their parents.
AID India - Delhi Impact
The children under different projects are of migrant
workers who keep on moving from one location to other
and have no access to educational facilities.

AID Delhi Volunteers visit these places, talk to the
parents of the children and motivate the children to study
and attend school and classes at our projects.

Volunteers regularly do basti visits to inform every parent
about their child’s progress and interact with the children
and their parents.

Significant improvement has been observed
in the learning, reading, writing and eating
habits of the children.

@ Unnati

Under this program, we identify the most deserving
students in our project and get them admitted into
regular good schools in Gurgaon.

This is designed to give them a very good environment
for growing and learning so that they have a chance
to look beyond the current horizons set by their
family, peer group and community.

School in Gurgaon and this year 12 Students
are going to be admitted.
