Chairpersons Greeting

Humana People to People India (HPPI) is celebrating its 20th birthday as I am writing this note. 

Starting with implementing the first community development project in Alwar District, Rajasthan, with seven employees and reaching out to 2,400 people in 1998, HPPI has grown to having implemented 74 projects across 14 states and benefiting around two million people in 2017-18.

On behalf of all of us in Humana People to People India, we send our heartfelt greetings to all partners: Government of India and State Governments, international government departments, foundations and organisations, private companies who have contributed through CSR initiatives, individuals; and last but not least, member organisations of the International Humana People to People Movement.

Through support and collective action, we have been successful in transforming millions of lives across the country. The stories of courage and inspiration of the people impacted are constantly shared verbally and through our digital platforms (website and social media). Do visit our channels to read and share these stories.

I would like to highlight some achievements of the past year: The first is the expansion of the Kadam Programme and the e orts to bring Out-of-School Children back to school, and to prevent in-school children, especially girls, from dropping out of school and securing them equal opportunities. More than 50,000 children were benefitted by Kadam during the year. The Kadam programme has also met with widespread appreciation from the Ministry of Human Resource Development and several State Governments, and will now be further scaled up to more states through Private Public Partnership models in the coming years.

I am also very proud to share that we directly engaged with more than 250,000 women across our project initiatives for gender equality and women empowerment. These include large-scale projects that train women in functional and financial literacy, entrepreneurship and skills training and support women to start their own enterprises and income-generating activities through microfinance. All these activities contributed towards the UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 5, i.e. “achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls”. It also contributed to improving the lives of the families of these women, translating to more than 1.2 million people.

Let me also men on HPPI’s contribution in 2017-18 to make India TB-free by conducting awareness campaigns and providing household information to 1.1 million people living in slums across 11 districts of Delhi, and supporting those affected by tuberculosis with test and treatment.

Lastly, I want to emphasise that HPPI is committed to continue the efforts of expansion in both quantity and quality of the five broad areas of development work – education, health, livelihood & community development, environmental sustainability and microfinance – all aligned with the global Sustainable Development Goals.

Operationally, all HPPI projects are people-centric and build on engagement and ownership of the activities by the people benefited and with an administrative and organisational framework that ensures the highest level of accountability and transparency.

We look forward to working together with all stakeholders and partners in many years to come!
