Thank you for visiting the ADRA India web site! Our organization is part of a global network of independent humanitarian organizations established in 1984 by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church now with presence in 125 countries. ADRA provides individual and community development and disaster relief without regard to political or religious association, age, gender, or ethnicity.In India, the gap between the rich and the poor is maybe more prevalent here than anywhere else in the world. It is true that India is a growing economic power, however we cannot hide from knowing that more than two thirds of India’s 1.2 billion people, live close-to or below the poverty line.

Many people don’t have ready access to clean water, education, safe & suitable habitations, affordable healthcare, employment/business opportunities. The challenge is great but we are here to face it with the support of the generous partners and in coordination with other NGOs.

ADRA India was officially registered in 1992 under the SOCIETIES REGISTRATION ACT OF 1860. ADRA India has being growing rapidly since then, striving to meet the massive needs that India’s undeveloped and developing communities have. The Tsunami in 2004 was a big challenge for us and we were forced to expand quickly to help as many affected communities as possible. Since then we are expanding our development program both geographically and thematically in the sectors of Health, Livelihood, Education and Refugees to name a few.

We hope you will enjoy your visit and as you learn more about who we are and what we do. May this experience touch your heart in a way that you will be willing to support our cause with generous actions that will enhance us to continue working for the least and the poorest and make the world a better place for all.
