Welcome to AADHAAR

AADHAAR is a Hindi word meaning 'foundation' or 'base'. AADHAAR is a non-commercial / non-governmental organisation seeded in August 1997, which provides support for grass roots-level development in India. It was started by students from India attending post-graduate studies at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. We are a registered group at the KVK Netherlands with dossier Number: 08099671. The group functions with the help of voluntary workers and seeks to incur practically no costs in organisational activities.

AADHAAR bridges the gap between the haves and have-nots. It serves to connect those who wish to support the underprivileged, with the needy to whom this support can bring about an improvement in their standard of living and can lead them out of poverty.

Our Objectives
At AADHAAR we believe that real progress will be achieved only when economic prosperity leads to social development at all levels. Uniform social development can lead to the elimination of poverty, illiteracy and other ills that plague the Indian society today.
