About Us

AIF New York Young Professionals Chapter (NYYPC) is the New York area youth chapter of AIF. With the goal of accelerating social and economic change in India, NYYPC has focused on engaging and educating young professionals about the work AIF is doing in India.

As a group, the NYYPC organizes activities targeting young professionals in NYC. These activities include fund raisers, social mixers, cultural celebrations, and speaker series, providing a common arena to interact and exchange ideas. The core team meets every week to plan these activities. The NYYPC also supports AIF - by building awareness of AIF and fundraising for some AIF-supported initiatives.

For the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2008, the NYYPC invited area young professionals to voice their opinion on the 2008-2009 AIF funding Initiative. Based on consensus, NYYPC identified the Apna Clinic, an Urban Health Center for sustained improvement in reproductive, maternal and child health in the slums of Mustafabad in Delthi.
