We introduce ourselves as Humana People to People India, a Non Governmental Organization established in India in 1998, under the Companies Act 1956, for promoting objectives of the nature specified in Section 25(1)(A) and registered under Foreign Contribution Regulation Act 1976.

Humana People to People India (HPPI) is a member organization of the Federation for Associations connected to the International Humana People to People Movement. The Federation works in 28 countries across 05 continents. It was founded on the precept that the Organization should be secular, people oriented and with the fundamental understanding that it is the people themselves who have to understand and make changes towards social development and economic growth. As a response to the call from the world summit on children in 1989, HPPI decided to start a number of Projects under the headline “Child Aid” where the child is at the heart of all our activities. The Child Aid projects targets the whole community with all aspects of development through the 10 lines which are as follows:-
Line 1 : Strengthening the economy of the Family
Line 2 : Health and Hygiene
Line 3 : Preschools
Line 4 : Children and youth as active in the political, social, cultural and economical sphere of society
Line 5 : People in difficult circumstances
Line 6 : Education
Line 7 : District Development
Line 8 : Environment
Line 9 : Women Empowerment
Line10 : Partnership in Development

We also implement specific projects on HIV/AIDS, Environment, Vocational training, Academy for working children and Training centre for global development.

The faith entrusted by the communities where we work, the society in general and your belief that HPPI can be construed as a trusted partner for developmental work is something that keeps us going

Organization Background

It is about fostering new generations with golden hearts and heads and hands, well educated and with a personal ethic of such proportions that humanized relationships of all sizes can serve as substitutes for all sorts of dehumanised phenomenon.
It is about improving democracy, advancing production, building up trade relations, generating services and it is about scanning all brains to create new portions of know how. It is about concentrating on the important task of transferring the results of efforts from places where development is well ahead to places where it is dawning or even absent. It is about establishing capable institutions for education and health. It is about improving human relationships on a contemporary basis and to modern standards. It is about emancipation of every single human being on the level of personal happiness and, at the same time making each human being responsible for the happiness of his neighbors through practical methods. And as always in the question of development it is about promoting and preventing.
Preventing the dehumanising of society, of institutions and of you and me. Promoting the humanization of mankind, the only art form that contains the seeds to the flowers of happiness for all. From black-white to all colours at random. From the struggle for liberation to the struggle for development” (from the charter of Humana People to People).

Humana People to People India’s mission is to create development in the broadest sense. Especially through the establishment and implementation of projects that aim at transferring knowledge, skills and capacity to individuals and communities that need assistance to come out of poverty and dehumanized conditions.
Humana People to People India works with the people as partners in finding solutions and in creating the necessary conditions to improve their living standards and to achieve their aspiration for a just and humanized life for themselves, their families and their communities.
It is further Humana People to People India’s mission to promote humanization of man, and to protect the weak and the outcast and to go against all forms of discrimination, oppression and exploitation.
