welcome to gidf

ACM GIDF, a not for profit organization that branches out of New Delhi, India, believes in the creation of an all-round and inclusive growth atmosphere. We work across India, and integrate in all our projects all four key sectors that lead to growth – education, health, livelihood and Environment.

Comprehensive surveys and in-situ research has firmed our belief that real growth happens only when these key sectors start performing together. Frankly speaking, it makes no sense concentrating just on health while neglecting education that’s crucial to develop health consciousness, or trying to imbibe and inculcate lofty ideals of environmental sustainability even while the respondents do not have enough employment options to sustain their homes.

Any intervention aiming to reach out to these respondents, thus, has to factor in all their key concerns – education, health, employment generation as well as caring for the environment. Our focus, therefore, is towards stringing together multifaceted development initiatives covering all these aspects to help create sustainable and self-reliant communities. We believe this is the only approach that would work.

Through innovative projects that reach out to the un-reached, and through effective utilization of donor’s funds, ACM GIDF carries out development projects in remote and inaccessible parts of India and the urban regions alike. Looking back at the journey that began in 2002, we can now proudly claim to have made a difference to millions of lives across 14 Indian states where we operate. Our target now is to expand the scope and reach of these model projects and to continue to push the boundaries of development under the support and patronage of individual and corporate supporters.
