Andheri-Hilfe Bonn is a free and independent organisation promoting development cooperation in India and Bangladesh. It originated from a private initiative supporting poor children in an orphanage at Andheri near Mumbay (then Bombay). Since 1967 it is registered as a non-profit association.
We are actually supporting more than 150 projects in India and in Bangladesh. Thus, we contribute to the social and economic development of the poorest groups in these countries. The focus of our activities is on social work, education and health as well as agricultural and village development (more about these subjects under "Sectors" and "Target Groups"). In order not to create new dependencies or not to maintain old ones we offer "help for self-help".
The financing of our work is based on donations from about 20.000 private persons and companies as well as on public grants from the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and from the Commission of the European Union.
The German Central Institute on Social Questions (DZI) has granted to Andheri-Hilfe its quality seal thus confirming that this organisation is making economical use of financial means reveived and that, therefore, it is regarded a serious partner worth receiving donations for its goals. If a donor wishes, Andheri-Hilfe will issue a receipt which can be used for tax deduction.
On other pages we wish to introduce Andheri-Hilfe to you in more detail. You will learn more about the history and the evolution of Andheri Hilfe, about its staff members as well as about the various fields of work and the philosophy behind this work.
