IFA was started in 1993 by a group of Indian Americans in Southern California after the devastating Latur earthquake. Concerned about the red tape and corruption involved in charity work, they wanted to explore direct avenues for sending their support. The resulting success of this endeavor and the satisfaction received encouraged them to make a long-term commitment.
The group has since evolved into a solid organization with a well-thought-out charter and clear philosophy. IFA is designed to function as a catalyst in activities that promote the economic empowerment of and self-sufficiency for India’s most underprivileged populations. Increasingly, it is seen by the diaspora as a vehicle to channel their energies and resources into bringing about positive change in India. Learn more at
