NGO Profile :
An Association for Development, Harmony and Action Research (AADHAAR) was established to engage the communities of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh for their developmental needs.

Some of their 2013-14 activities were as follows:

  • Field Intervention: AADHAAR helped construct around 50 water tanks during the year in their effort to help the community in rain water harvesting and the conservation of water for domestic and agricultural purposes. It built check dams and an infiltration well. It carried out plantation activity with community participation.
  • Women Empowerment: The organisation organised monthly meetings to help women’s groups develop an understanding on the objective and need for formation of collectives and becoming more articulate. It organised several meetings and worked with other organisations to prevent violence against women.
  • Relief and Rehabilitation: Incessant rains and cloudburst in June 2013 had resulted in landslides and flash floods in many places in Uttarakhand and led to damaged roads, collapsed bridges and widespread loss of life and property.  Volunteers from AADHAAR and partner organisations took part in relief and rehabilitation work. AADHAAR also conducted a rapid assessment of the area in Rudraprayag and Uttarkashi with the help of partner organisation, Shri Bhuvneshwari Mahila Ashram (SBMA). AADHAAR pooled financial resources from Sehgal Foundation and individual donors to provide goods related to immediate needs of the villagers like temporary shelter (tarpaulin tents), basic utensils and blankets. 
  • Support to Other Organisations: AADHAAR carried out several activities in support of other civil service organisations during the year such as: evaluation of the Ekta Parishad’s national campaign on land rights; study to assess the training needs for climate change adaptation; and market feasibility study for workers to form a cooperative in Uttar Pradesh. AADHAAR prepared a script for 12 episodes on different aspects of Panchayat Raj for Sehgal Foundation to air on the community radio in Mewat, Haryana.
