nonprofit, non-political, and secular organization supporting economic and social development in India.
IDS supports small, grass roots development projects under various categories, like Income Generation, Education, Health Care, Environment and Disaster Management across India. These projects emphasize self-reliance, accountability of project coordinators, and a strong sense of ownership for the beneficiaries. The projects IDS adopts are initiated and carried out by the community members themselves ensuring that they are responsive to local conditions and needs. Careful prior monitoring and ongoing dialogue with the project has been the mainstay of IDS project support. We also support activists who are striving to change attitudes and fight prejudices in society. IDS believes in efficiency, transparency and research. Our annual reports are available. Since 1974 IDS has acted as a catalyst/supporter to over 150 projects all over India with over US$ one million and continues that work.
