AADHAR was registered as a Society in the year 1987 under the Societies Registration Act of 1886. It was formed to Interact with and NOT help the underprivileged, the primary stakeholders artisans, unorganised workers, women and youth. We believe in going to the people, learning from them, planning with them, starting with what they know, (and) building on what they have.
In the year 2008 AADHAR was transformed into a Public Charitable and Educational Trust under the Indian Trusts Act of 1882, retaining, however, previous Members, Experience, Records and Operations.
In the year 2006 – 2007 AADHAR took up a challenging task of Enrolling 64000 Footwear Artisans of Agra to develop a database of Footwear Artisans with their Geographical and Skill Mapping. In a period of 11 months Photo ID Cards were issued to 60000 Footwear Artisans of Agra. This card bore not only the photo ID but also Geographical location and Skill – Specialisation – Experience of the Footwear Artisans. This Card was fondly called AADHAR CARD since it was issued to the Footwear Artisans by AADHAR, a Society then. This statement is for records and to assert that we are the precursors as we came into existence in 1987 and not followers of the popular brand.
