Association for India's Development started at University of Maryland as a non-profit and has spread throughout USA with 30 chapters. The many chapters raise money for grass roots development project which focuses on Children's education, women's empowerment, education for the disabled, rights of backward classes, social equality and many others that focus on clean water and re-usable energy.
All their work is done by volunteers and people who have dedicated their lives full time for the upliftment of communities that are seeking self reliance and security. They are openly battling corruption and prejudices.
It is a great cause for supporting and about 95% of the funds collected go toward the projects.

AID had made me think "solutions" to the interconnected issues that India faces especially the rural India. Having reviewed projects and worked with few NGOs, it has opened my eyes to how issues can be resolved and thus help the needy.
