Our Goals, Activities and Partners

"IndiaCare" is a charitable trust which promotes social, medical and scientific projects in India.
The Trust informs the public about useful projects and relief efforts. Volunteers and members are on site and undertake the coordination and implementation of planned measures.

Since November 1992 IndiaCare is recognized as "Relief Agency" with  the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1993 the Trust was registered with the Ministry of Welfare in New Delhi under the "Indo-German Agreement". This enables us to send donated goods duty free to India. IndiaCare organizes regularly the transport of medical supplies to India and is responsible for the effective distribution.

Solar Energy
The Trust promotes the development and demonstration of appropriate solar technologies in  India. Together with our local partners we are building off grid photovoltaic systems and solar powered kitchens. Among other things, the association developed a number of solar steam kitchens, which can prepare up to 35,000 meals per day. Due to the successful demonstration of the solar kitchens,  the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy Sources( MNRE)  is supporting such systems with up to 50% of the cost. In the meantime many similar solar powered kitchens are coming up everywhere in India.

Medical relief projects
In the field of primary health care, the Trust cooperates mainly with the Global Hospital and Research Centre (GHRC) in Mount Abu, Rajasthan . The hospital was inaugurated in 1990 and provides primary health care towards the rural population of the district. In 1994 the GHRC  was recognized by the World Health Organisation (WHO Euro) as "Health supporting Hospital". In addition to the latest medical treatment, the hospital offers traditional Indian medicine, develops community outreach  programs, caries out medical research and promotes  health awareness.
