Mission Statement

The American India Foundation (AIF) is a leading international development organization charged with the mission of accelerating social and economic change in India.

Description

By mobilizing people and resources across the United States, AIF has raised over $30 million since its inception in 2001. AIF awards grants to education, livelihood, and public health projects in India - with emphases on elementary education, women's empowerment, and HIV/AIDS, respectively.

AIF also administers four programs: (1) the Service Corps, which develops young American leaders by placing them with Indian non-profits based on skills and need; (2) the Digital Equalizer, which bridges the "digital divide" by providing computers, Internet, and training to under-resourced schools; (3) League of Artisans, which creates sustained livelihoods for underprivileged artisans - particularly tribal, rural and women artisans - and thereby improve their economic and living conditions; and (4) Donor Education, which trains donors to become strategic philanthropists.

AIF works out of New York and Silicon Valley in the US, and New Delhi and Bangalore in India. President Bill Clinton serves as Honorary Chair.
