About AADHAAR (An Association for Development Harmony and Action Research)

AADHAAR- An Association for Development, Harmony and Action Research came into a formal existence on Jan 29th, 2011 as a nationally registered not for profit organization. Realizing that only strong models of community engagement could bring necessary changes at the grassroots and can be point of references for policy advocacy, a group of like minded, development professionals got together and after much discussion and deliberations, AADHAAR came into being.

AADHAAR believes that the most important resource that one can share with rural masses is ones time and presence. This belief led AADHAAR to remote districts of Uttarakhand, (Dist. Tehri) where AADHAAR has started its first field implementation office and Dist. Solan in Himachal Pradesh where AADHAAR is working primarily with the government.
