Happy Birthday Gandhiji

Democracy is an impossible thing until the power is shared by all…let not democracy degenerate into mobocracy -- M. K. Gandhi

On October 2, AID commemorates our beloved Gandhiji on his 149th birthday.

AID has been guided by Gandhian ideals of truth and non-violence, the path of satyagraha and struggle for social justice, and the focus on villages and sustainable development. Gandhiji’s profile is the AID logo. Gandhiji’s words are relevant today as they were decades ago – the threads of violence, marginalization and mobocracy have to be removed from the democratic fabric of India.

Thanks to your steadfast support, AID has been working for over 27 years in ensuring that the most disadvantaged voices are heard amidst the clamor of the privileged. In 2017, you supported 130 projects, including watershed development in Jharkhand/Odisha and the rights of sanitation workers in Karnataka.

Your continued support enables AID to work towards the mission of empowering all people to be full-fledged, equal citizens. One convenient way to donate is to designate AID as the recipient of funds through United Way. Details can be found in this pdf (DOWNLOAD PDF)

Thank you for joining us in celebrating Gandhi Jayanti and in honoring all the people of democratic India!
