Learn that the whole of life is giving. Give What you have to give. It will come back multiplied a thousand-fold. But ask nothing, want nothing, in return. Do not think of that while giving.

IDCA appeals you to donate generously to support one of our members or NGO of your choice in India or general fund to support projects in Education, Health, Water, Environment, and Livelihood area. Together we can make changes for better lives of millions who still need our help to be able to stand up on their own feet. IDCA is a 501(c)(3) Tax exempt Not-for-profit organization registered in Illinois. Your contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Who are true lovers of humanity? Those who, forgetting themselves,
bring sunshine to the lives of others.–

"Let new India arise-let her arise out of the peasants' cottage, grasping the plough; out of the huts of fisherman,the cobbler, and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop,from the oven of the fritter-seller." - Swami Vivekananda
