Support Our Cause

AIFO India maintains a portfolio of interconnected initiatives, each of which commits to specific, measurable goals within a projected time frame and incorporates rigorous monitoring as work progresses, while remaining flexible enough to seize unanticipated opportunities, shift tactics when necessary, and recalibrate as needed.

For over 18 years, AIFO India’s mission has been to enable opportunities for people suffering from leprosy and related disabilities, people with disabilities, and those from backgrounds of poverty, vulnerability, and exclusion to lead a better quality of life.

Today we pursue this mission through the dual goals of supporting healthcare initiatives for people suffering from leprosy, and fostering sustainable community development initiatives.

Our healthcare projects focus on the use of the latest, innovative and empathetic solutions to the challenges posed by leprosy and disability. While, our community development initiatives focus on expanding opportunities and building inclusive economies for people from marginalized and vulnerable backgrounds with the aim of creating broadly shared prosperity.

Together with partners, we strive to catalyse and scale innovations, create unlikely partnerships that span sectors, and take risks others can not – or will not. 

Your help is much appreciated.

Rebuilding communities affected by Leprosy …
​​​​​​​means a better quality of life for every child, woman and adult.


Leprosy Control

Help people around the world

AIFO is a health and development organisation working to restore health, hope and dignity to people affected by Leprosy and other allied diseases, particularly those with disabling consequences, and children’s welfare programmes.


Community Based Rehabilitation

Equalization of opportunities

Community Based Rehabilitation [CBR] is a strategy within community development for rehabilitation, equalization of opportunities and social inclusion of all people with disability. It is multi-sectoral and dimensional. 


Child Care

Education for children

Children are provided with good education, nutrition and medical treatment at our projects. As a result, these neglected and deprived children grow into models not only for their parents but also for the community.

Our Impact

AIFO India works both directly and in partnership with value-aligned partners across 14 states in India: Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Tamilnadu, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Tripura, Nagaland, Manipur, and Mizoram.

We are on a dual mission: to eradicate leprosy in India and to support people with disabilities in our country.

Our work involves rebuilding communities affected by leprosy through educational, leadership, and healthcare initiatives focused on the needs of men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds. We also supervise monitoring and training programmes for the disabled and assist in identifying and addressing healthcare needs. Our overarching goal is not only to improve the lives of the people we help, but to enable them to become welcomed, respected members of the communities in which they live.
