About AID Minnesota

AID Minnesota was formed in 1995. In recent years, there had been some lull in activity as students graduated and moved to different cities. Some of the members also returned to India to work at the grass roots level. The chapter was resurrected in 2015 with much passion and energy and has been back in operation since then. Currently, our team consists of about 20 active volunteers and nearly 50 event volunteers. Our volunteers work on fundraising ideas, help review project proposals, initiate and provide support for projects, review and monitor progress of projects, campaigns and other activities of AID. Volunteers also have the option to visit project areas during their trip to India and share their experience of AID's work in villages with the NRI community. We also provide volunteer opportunities with our partner organizations to interested volunteers.Join Us
