  • The decision-making authority in aaghaz foundation vests with an Executive Council. But it doesn't imply that aaghaz foundation belongs to an individual or a group. We are all cogs in the machine. So you can be as much a part of aaghaz foundation as we are

How do we manage our expenses?

We  don't have  any  expenses...

In keeping up with our guiding principles, aaghaz foundation doesn't spend a single penny on itself. It doesn't pay any salary/allowance to anyone, as it doesn't have any staff in the conventional sense of the word. All office expenditure, including stationary, postal expense, setting up a website etc. are borne by the members voluntarily.
