Inspiration

Swami Vivekananda

 Let new India arise-let her arise out of the peasants' cottage, grasping the plough; out of the huts of fisherman, the cobbler, and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop, from the oven of the fritter-seller. Let her emanate from the factory, from marts and markets. Let her emerge from groves and forests, from hills and mountains. -Swami Vivekananda

Let us work together to inform, inspire, and Impact India positively for poverty eradication and climate change mitigation/adaption.  

What We do ?

IDCA promotes Networking and Collaboration between non-profit organizations, non-governmental
organizations and individuals that are engaged in betterment of the lives of village
and urban poor through scalable sustainable development initiatives. Some of the
issues we are focussing can be expressed by the acronym WEALTH as shown
below:

W ater, Waste/Sanitation
E ducation,  Energy, Environment,
A griculture, Attitude,  Administration
L ivelihoods,  Leadership
T echnology,  Trade, Transportation
H ealthcare, Housing, Harmony

For the present our focus will be on four core needs of Water, Education, Livelihoods, and Healthcare.  We will also work on climate change mitigation  because poor are most affected by the adverse climate related events.  We will work on other issues with our members here and partners in India as and when necessary and feasible. We also intend to  address the larger global issues like global warming and climate change, poverty, population, alternative energy which are important to achieve our Mission.  We think that merely working at the grassroots  level is not enough to achieve our desired goal of a prosperous, peaceful India and the world.  We need to learn about the policies and help change  them in the best interest of the masses and the planet.

We  also aim to work with and support  successful NGOs in India brought to our attention by our members, corporate sector, and government bodies whenever necessary.
