Our Mission

Breaking the cycle of poverty in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka by empowering marginalized people with skills, services and infrastructure grounded in sustainable development.

Our Philosophy:

We believe a lasting change in impoverished regions can happen only when local people take charge and lead the change. Our Approach  puts power, not charity, in hands of the poor. We steer our programs to produce benefits for children and women who are powerful players in the fight against poverty.  We empower marginalized people with education, livelihood skills and self-governance capabilities so they are equipped to make changes to their lives and their children’s.

We also believe every person has the right to survive and prosper with dignity.  IDRF’s programs serve the disadvantaged without regard to race, religion, caste or creed.
