The Indo-American Institute for Rural Empowerment (IAIRE) is a not-for-profit corporation organized in order to raise funds for charitable purposes empowering the rural poor in India and to provide technological assistance aimed at income-generation for the poor in India.
IAIRE is not organized for the private economic gain of any individual, nor is it organized for the explicit support of any particular individual.
Goals and Purposes
The main objective of IAIRE is to promote self-reliance among the rural poor in India through empowerment programs. The primary activities toward this end will be two-fold:
Fundraising to support Sri Vidya Trust, a registered public charitable trust in Andhra Pradesh, India, and related charitable organizations working for the holistic development and empowerment of the poor in India through social, religious and spiritual activities. We view education (with a special emphasis on women and girls), medical support, and religious and spiritual training as three important pillars of our charter. The support of schools, medical infrastructure, and religious and spiritual activities that promote harmony among entire rural communities, will be some of our key activities in this regard.
Providing consulting and technological assistance to charitable organizations, to help create income-generating opportunities and wealth for the poor in India. Our activities in this regard will include supporting the development of educational software in local languages in India and involving college-level students in India in this process, imparting of software skills, and the promotion of local arts and crafts.
