ABOUT HELP FOUNDATION

(Registered under 12AA & Approved under 80G(5) of Income Tax Act)


HELP (Human Empowerment & Livelihood Promotion) Foundation is a Not for Profit, Research based Secular Social Service Organization founded by a group of professionals who have excellent track record in various professional arenas. HELP Foundation envisages a fairer, more inclusive Indian society that reflects and supports the dignity, equality and participation of all people, especially the marginalized and backward classes.

HELP Foundation provides independent and informed policy development, advice, reviews and plays a key coordination and leadership role for the non government, social and community services sector in Kerala, India. HELP Foundation works with its members, Local Self Governing Institutions, Government departments and other relevant agencies on current as well as emerging, social and operational issues.

HELP Foundations sole intention is to work towards a better society, so as to be able to bring in positive change by uniting people who share the common vision of a developed India, and pay back to the society through supporting groups, communities and organization that have similar intent & need.HELP Foundation has its origin in a couple of professionals coming forward to contribute back to the society. Having fun and enjoying life is a must. But at the same time we can't turn a blind eye to our surroundings. Once we enter into the posh air-conditioned offices we are in a totally insulated from the real world. There are people still trying to find a ray of hope, which will make their lives less miserable. Some just can't manage to have two square meals a day. There are old peoples for whom there is no one to take care. May be they have become a burden for their children and they are sent to old age homes. Also there is tremendous deficit in understanding of natural issues within the perspective of development. And moreover there are huge environmental disasters in the making. Scientific communities are more confined to creating substandard research papers which are more of documentation in nature than any cutting edge research or findings to state, nor have we seen any worthwhile applications of such research.

Life doesn't treat everyone equally. Everyone has one’s own shares of joys and miseries. But as a responsible human being we can definitely come forward to make a difference in lives of at least few less fortunate ones. It doesn't mean that you should renounce everything. Even a little step taken in the direction to uplift the deprived ones and promoting sustainable policies and developmental initiatives can have long-lasting effects. We all have our personal lives, social and professional commitments to fulfill. But at the same time we should not forgot that we all owe at least some responsibility towards the society and our fellow beings. It's easy to look the other way and lead life in our own pleasures. Or else one can try and come forward to make a difference.With this strong conviction we tied up with the Catholic Church of Quilon to impart professionalism to its activities by volunteering ourselves. But that experience was devastating and shattering. This reminded of our responsibilities towards the society and resolved to create a professional delivery system towards creating a better society and deliver a public service outside of any selfish motives. Thus we came forward to form HELP Foundation outside the ambit of any religious or political patronage truly dedicated ourselves towards professional social service.
