Problems in India are interconnected, so are the solutions. This is the theme behind work of Association for India's Development where we work on several interconnected small projects to make a difference. In the last 22 years of its formation AID has supported 1000+ projects and worked with 250+ partners in India.

The area of work range from environment, forest restoration, agriculture, waste management, women empowerment, child and maternal health care, education, right to information movement, anti-corruption, natural disaster relief, and many more. Apart from supporting projects, AID is also involved in campaigns. 

AID is a voluntary organization and driven by students, professionals, and concerned citizens of the planet. The amount of work and outreach by AID is at the grassroots where we work with poorest of the poor in India.

India Beckons is annual donor dinner event of Association for India's Development where we get together on wonderful Indian Classical Performances and listen to wonderful speakers to the developmental issues in India.

Srinivasan C started his journey in environmental efforts as the only participating Indian corps member of King County World Conservation Corps, Seattle, USA in the year 1997. He is currently Tamil Nadu State Planning Commission Steering Committee Member for Solid and Liquid Resource Management.

Through his pioneering work and vision, Srinivasan is responsible for initiating SLRM projects in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Meghalaya, among several other states of India. Srinivasan C’s association with Association for India’s Development dates back to his pioneering work in Vellore Hill Restoration project. This project was later adopted with his help in Payvihir Eco Village which won United Nations Development Program award in 2014. Srinivasan’s work was highlighted in popular TV series Satyamev Jayate and his work in Jodhpur was inaugurated by Mr. Aamir Khan on August 15, 2014.
