I appreciate how IDRF has come up with thoughtful ways to help Indians in impoverished areas to better care for themselves.
Hi, I am Durgesh Gupta, a resident of New Jersey since last 18 years. I was introdued to this charity organization by my cousin Arun Gupta who is using its services since long time.
My experience has been amazing. Working with Vinodji ( The head of this organization ) and his team has been pleasant. He always responded to my phone calls, emails without delay. I felt like having a guardian and a big brother.
I have all respect for his dedication and efforts to run IDRF. I am looking forward to have long lasting association with IDRF.
As the Director of a charity in India, I had very pleasant experiences working with IDRF as a development partner. IDRF has supported various causes in India to serve the tribal communities and slum-dwellers in cities. The documentation and monitoring process is thorough and their staff veru compassionate and responsive.
Look forward to long term association with IDRF.
I have worked with several non-profit organizations, as a donor, volunteer, or as a supporter. IDRF stands out when it comes to professionalism. Absolute transparency to the public is the key for any non-profit organization, and IDRF consistently proved it to its donors and volunteers. I know IDRF for more than 15 years, and the founder Dr. Vinod Prakashji. His consistent dedication to this organization has benefited the downtrodden and oppressed people in the Indian society for the last twenty years. And, behind the success of IDRF, the support he got through out the journey from Saralaji is noteworthy.
We are a village school near Pondicherry,India located next to an international township called Auroville.Our relationship to IDRF extends to over ten years.Our school offers very good facilities for sports,extra-curricular activities and academics.Naturally we seek the support of Non-Profit organisations like IDRF as fees cannot possibly cover the expenditures involved.We find IDRF extremely supportive of our requests.They trust us.They trust that the need we project is genuine.They trust that the budget requested is reasonable.They give to us in the spirit as if it is their own project.What else can one expect?The founders of IDRF Sh.Vinod Prakashji and Sarla behn have infused the organisation with a spirit of supporting projects with love rather than in a charitable attitude.This is unique.Over the years IDRF has helped us build a very long compound wall,staff quarters,sports equipment store-room and many other things.
we could talk with the concerned person directly. The contact person - coordinator - was very polite and listened to our requests. They accommodated our requests.
We have had the privilege of donating funds thru IDRF to many of our favorite projects in India. We get excellent support, prompt communication and all our money sent to the NGO of our liking.
We have been working thru IDRF for over 6 years now and have nothing but great things to say.
I have been absolutely thrilled with my association with IDRF. It is very rare to find somebody like Dr. Vinod Prakash , the founder of IDRF, who has totally devoted last thirty years of his life to the uplifting of the poor and needy in India. Undaunted by the huge problems facing these people, Vinod and his wife Sarla have tirelessly worked to improve their lives on multiple fronts, taking care of their medical needs, education, water and sanitation to name just a few, especially for girls and tribal people. I feel very grateful to Vinod and Sarla for letting me be a part of their great endeavor which has profoundly changed for better the lives of so many people. The work that IDRF has accomplished has an enduring effect for generations to follow. However rare Vinod as a person is, I still wish there were more people like Vinod who would follow his model in other parts of the world to make our earth a better place to live for millions of people.
I have know India development and relief fund for past 20 years. They have been supporting projects run by Seva Bharathi and other grass root NGOs in India with minimal overhead expenses. Beneficiaries of these projects are the most needy people in slums, rural areas and tribals areas. IDRF funded sanitation projects in Adilabad district to mobile medical can in Kurnool to vocational training centre in Warangal. Kudos to Vinod Prakash and his team.
My experience with IDRF is a memorable one. When Chennai, India was reeling under heavy floods and devastation, I approached IDRF for relief assistance. Without hesitation, immediately, Dr. Vinodh Prakash transferred 40,000 USD for relief work. We were able to provide relief material to 1800 affected families. They have assured to continuously help for our Swacch Bharat Abhiyan project and other charity work of Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society for which I am the secretary. IDRF is doing a wonderful job to reduce the sufferings of fellow human beings.
My regards to Dr. Vinodh Prakash and other members of IDRF.
