A decade ago, New Delhi-based non-profit organization Aman Trust applied to the ministry of home affairs for a licence under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) after foreign donors approached the trust with financial aid. Among them were the Ford Foundation, The Hunger Project and the Tides Foundation.
