Aarohi is a not-for-profit grassroots organization, involved in integrated rural development in the Central Himalayan region of Uttarakhand with a vision to create a more equitable society. Our mission is to create development opportunities for rural Himalayan communities through quality education, healthcare, promotion of livelihoods and any other development interventions. Our work extends through Nainital and Almora districts and activities relate primarily to HealthCare, Education, Livelihoods, Energy, and Forest Management.

Aarohi started basic healthcare services in 1992 to meet the desperate need of people in a remote village in the Nainital District of Uttarakhand. The small clinic today is a modern hospital (Aarohi Arogya Kendra) with outpatient, inpatient, pathological laboratory & advanced diagnostic services like radiology, X–ray, E.C.G., dental and surgical care services. The clinic continue to respond to medical emergencies and to provide appropriate referral services.
