HAI is an Indian CSO registered under the Indian Trusts Act and the FCRA. HAI has been
founded by a team of Indian humanitarian and development professionals with a collective
national and global experience of over 300 years. While as of now, HAI’s activities are
exclusively confined to India, it strives to expand its work outside India, too, particularly to
complement our government’s bilateral support to developing and least developed
countries on poverty alleviation and humanitarian programmes.
The western world has largely defined the models of development and humanitarian architecture for the developing world. HAI aspires to evolve development and humanitarian paradigms, which remains informed of western architecture, but remains independent to promote and strengthen localised humanitarian and development model, leading to an efficient South-South cooperation.
