Our Story

Decades of impact and counting

The backbone of the ADI Foundation is Adil Adi, a man who truly values the word “Family” – he has a passion for being inclusive and cultivating a feeling of family with everyone he meets. The catalysts for this passion are personal tragedies that he has transformed into driving the quality of life for global citizens.

In his early 20’s, while studying in the United States, Adil lost his young mother to breast cancer and his young father to a fatal heart attack within a matter of 3 months in India. This tragic event had a life changing impact on him, as he was the only child and was left with no other immediate family. After completing his Masters of Business Administration and working as a technical engineer for 8 years (to demonstrate a technology background), he founded WorldLink in 1998 to focus on technology transformation in the enterprise.

After starting with 1 employee and scaling WorldLink to a global company that services the world’s most innovative companies, Adi and his family launched the Adi Foundation to provide opportunities for those who need it most. The Foundation maintains the same passion, entrepreneurial spirit, and sense of family that Adi has espoused starting those many years ago.

Adi Foundation: Our History

Squaring the curve by improving our collective quality of life through both longevity and prolonged health.

The foundation focuses on helping others achieve self-sustainability. We believe in helping everyone stand on their own feet by which they can help themselves and their families. The foundation seeks unique solutions for those that need it and do not stop at anything until a promising solution has been found.

Our Mission

It is the mission of The ADI Foundation to create a better future by leveraging the best in technology, collaboration, and community-based solutions to take on the world’s largest challenges. Our work enhances quality of life for global citizens by creating innovation across initiatives related to improving health outcomes, providing educational opportunities, and driving social equality.

A message from our patriarch:

“We aim to improve the quality of life and longevity by seeking unique solutions in life sciences which are augmented by technology. Our approach is done through an innovative lens, which helps remove traditional barriers and fundamentally shifts a nascent mindset. Only when we think out of the box can we find a way to bring positive change to the world, which is so very needed. Challenging researchers, physicians and fellow philanthropists to not give up and not take ‘no’ for answer, is our impetus. Only when we work together, can we achieve ever lasting, positive change”

Our Current Focus

Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on challenges that are dearest and nearest to us: Rare pediatric disease.

We focus on one major issue because we think that’s the best way to have a profound impact.
Why we focus on Rare Pediatric Diseases in particular is because we believe every child should have a fair shot at a long and meaningful life.
