A Glimpse into our Past
AVSAR was founded in late 2003 through the initiatives of Dr. Ashish Goyal. Inspired by the service experience he had in the slums of Mumbai in December 2002, Dr. Goyal made a bold journey back to Mumbai by taking a year off after medical school to start his own non-governmental organization (NGO) in India. Through his perseverance and drive, AVSAR India was established to help community-based non-profits working to improve the healthcare of the underprivileged, especially children. In January 2004, AVSAR became a recognized 501 © 3 organization in the United States of America. After the organization was founded, the AVSAR team established the infrastructure and created a support system in India. Volunteers came from all over the world (US, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, and Pakistan) and had all different backgrounds (medicine, business, public health, sociology, marketing, engineering, and more). On its 2nd birthday, AVSAR celebrated over 55 volunteer experiences in India. AVSAR now has an established its local team and runs a complex support system for inspirational NGOs and passionate volunteers. The AVSAR USA team is responsible for all senior level decision making as well as fundraising for the offices based in India.
In January 2006, we will be recognized as a charitable trust by the Government of Maharashtra, India.
