THE HANS FOUNDATION ENDEAVOURS TO MAKE A QUALITY IMPACT THROUGH IT’S PASSION AND WORK

Ms. Shweta Rawat

The Hans Foundation is forever indebted to Mata Shri Mangla ji and Bhole ji Maharaj for being a source of inspiration and guiding spirit. It is a privilege and an honour to have their patronage and work towards their grand vision for humanity.

The Hans Foundation is forever indebted to Mata Shri Mangla ji and Bhole ji Maharaj for being a source of inspiration and guiding spirit. It is a privilege and an honour to have their patronage and work towards their grand vision for humanity.

The Hans Foundation, established in 2009, is a Public Charitable Trust that provides funding support to Not-for-Profit organisations in India. The main areas of intervention for the organization are; Education, Health, Livelihoods and Disability. THF’s Strategic planning focuses on key areas of its work with the aim of addressing the key issues of poverty alleviation, economic inequalities, and 360° impact on the quality of life through social development programs

THF’s programmes are majorly implemented in the most rural and under-developed areas in the country. Over the years, THF has expanded its charitable activities in collaboration with State and Central Governments, institutions, corporates, academia and non-government organizations for sustainable interventions to achieve scale and economy. The interventions implemented by the foundation range from grass root level to national level programmes.

MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER AND CHAIRPERSON

In August of 2018, the southern Indian coastal state of Kerala experienced intensive monsoon rains that resulted in the worst floods in over a century. More than 9 million hectares of arable land were destroyed. There were approximately 200 fatalities and over a million people lost their homes. As soon as this crisis could be attended to, The Hans Foundation (THF) immediately began working on an action plan, which included reaching out to partner organizations that specialize in Emergency Response.  These relationships are invaluable to us as they helped us to provide quick, critical care to distribute essential health and hygiene supplies to over 1000 families. THF also pledged to rebuild 250 damaged homes in the worst hit villages. Situations like these remind us, that oftentimes a philanthropic

MESSAGE FROM FOUNDER AND CHAIRPERSON

In August of 2018, the southern Indian coastal state of Kerala experienced intensive monsoon rains that resulted in the worst floods in over a century.

As soon as this crisis could be attended to, The Hans Foundation (THF) immediately began working on an action plan, which included reaching out to partner organizations that specialize in Emergency Response.  These relationships are invaluable to us as they helped us to provide quick, critical care to distribute essential health and hygiene supplies to over 1000 families. THF also pledged to rebuild 250 damaged homes in the worst hit villages. Situations like these remind us, that oftentimes a philanthropic organization can implement programs and action, and ensure support arrives when it is truly needed.

THF’s core belief system can be seen in the programs that receive its attention. Empowering men and women to achieve economic freedom through innovative means will bring progress and development to their families, and also to the communities in which they live. Quality education and healthcare are necessary steps to poverty alleviation.

With that in mind, THF has engaged in some ambitious educational initiatives.  A MoU has been signed with the Government of Rajasthan and the Organization for Early Literacy Promotion (OELP) which focuses on strengthening the foundational teachings of reading, writing and learning for early grade school students. 14,000 primary schools will have this program implemented at their school.

In the Northeast state of Nagaland, with partner Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), THF has funded the Mahatma Gandhi Academy for Human Development (MGAHD). This school is the first in the region to offer diploma courses in livelihood innovation and social entrepreneurship.

Another achievement that THF is proud of is The Hans Foundation General Hospital.  This facility is the first 150-bed, multi-specialty hospital in the mountains of Uttarakhand. Located in Satpuli, Pauri district, the hospital sees patients from as far as western Uttar Pradesh and Nepal. I am happy to say that the hospital has become a leading center for medical care across Uttarakhand.

This year The Hans Foundation and Rural India Support Trust also committed support to a great strategic partnership between CSIS (Center for Strategic and International Studies) and Duke University. This partnership spawned The Indian States Health Innovation Project, which plans to study the gaps in healthcare services in 15 states. This is an exciting venture that I hope will yield great partnerships.

The Hans Foundation will be ten years old in 2019. A decade’s journey seems short when the goals are lofty and ambitions are high. I am hopeful that our work will positively impact the quality of life for our target communities and we will continue to be an impactful foundation for years to come.

The year 2018 has been a very significant one for The Hans Foundation. To scale up our nationwide approach, we forged major alliances and entered into partnerships with the governments as well as with some of the biggest Trusts and Foundations in the country.

A nationwide study has been initiated with nominees from Central Government Ministries, government mental institutes and NGOs working in this field to provide succour to thousands of inmates who have recovered and are still stuck in 43 mental health hospitals for years.

This year we also signed a historic MoU with the Nagaland

The year 2018 has been a very significant one for The Hans Foundation. To scale up our nationwide approach, we forged major alliances and entered into partnerships with the governments as well as with some of the biggest Trusts and Foundations in the country.

A nationwide study has been initiated with nominees from Central Government Ministries, government mental institutes and NGOs working in this field to provide succour to thousands of inmates who have recovered and are still stuck in 43 mental health hospitals for years.

This year we also signed a historic MoU with the Nagaland Government, first since independence by any Foundation. It envisages implementation of a massive livelihood programme with an outlay of Rs 100 crores. THF is starting a mid-day meal scheme with nine central kitchens in Uttarakhand, with capital outlay of Rupees 70 crores. These kitchens, once ready, will provide nutrious hot meals to an estimated 3,90,000 children in schools and anganwadis.

Capitalising on the success and experience of our Integrated Village Development Programme (IVDP) in Bhageshwar district of Uttarakhand, THF has signed an agreement with the Government of Maharashtra to participate in their 1000 Village Social Transformation Programme. It is the biggest initiative of its kind which aims to bring the cities development at the doorsteps of these villages without disturbing the basic village fabric that binds them to their roots.

THF narrative is in-complete without the mention of Uttarakhand 2020. There is a tsunami of progress impacting lives of millions in this Dev Bhoomi, Uttarakhand.

Though, still in its infancy, THF’s latest drive to eradicate corneal blindness from the country stems from its remarkable beginning with its first state of the art eye bank in King George Medical University, Lucknow and now with our partnership with LV Prasad to set up a chain of such eye banks all across the country.

Billions in Change 2, launched Hans power pack, an engineering marvel, Shivansh Khad and Rain Maker made a splash all over the world in October 2018. These innovations are likely to usher in transformation in the lives of millions. State of the art hospitals in Satpuli and Haridwar continue to cater to hundreds of thousands of BPL families to provide quality health and eye care every year.

As we enter our 10th year anniversary, we are prepared to embrace all-encompassing dimensions of our vision ‘’enhancing quality of life for all through empowerment of marginalised and underprivileged communities in India’’.
