Who we are
TEAM AIMS started in 2001 by a handful of energetic, motivated, committed individuals in the Washington DC area with the goal of achieving a better society in India and USA. This organization has been formed with this sole goal; we realize the sweeping nature of this grandiose goal, the breadth and enormity of the challenges that faces us. However, it is these challenges that make us realize the imperative nature of the problem and the need for dynamic movement to seek creative solutions.
We are motivated by what we see.
On one hand we see the terrible economic conditions of millions of people, struggling to find work, to feed themselves and their children, and struggling to get health care. On the other hand we see an elite minority who have the lions’ share of the country’s resources. There is a need for leadership, awareness, guidance, and support to enable every citizen of the country to access resources, to use them to improve individual lives.
It is time to open our eyes wide, put a stake in the ground, and start somewhere, anywhere.
We are taking small steps addressing the distress at the grassroots, where the need of the hour is imminent.
Our mission is to work towards strengthening and empowering rural communities, by facilitating access to quality education, better infrastructure, and enabling access to better health in an attempt to bring about socioeconomic development in India and USA.
To accomplish our mission, we bring people together and make them devote themselves to ennoble a healthy lifestyle through the sport of running while enhancing the quality of life in the community. Together, we are raising funds through our running programs and races, which contributes directly to strengthening and empowering rural communities by facilitating access to quality education, better infrastructure, and access to better health to bring about socioeconomic development in India.
