What We Do
HUMANITY FOUNDATION campaigns for a conducive legal and fiscal environment for the Indian voluntary sector in the national and state levels. Certain provisions of laws governing voluntary organisations like the Societies Registration Act of 1860, the Indian Trusts Act (1882), the Charitable and Religious Trust Act (1920), Section 25 of the Indian Companies Act (1950), Foreign Contribution Regulation Act of 1976 (FCRA) and 35AC Registration by similar legislations of the states have become obsolete or redundant. These laws impede rather than enable the work of Voluntary organisations. There is a greater need for the promotion of voluntarism than for its regulation.
HUMANITY FOUNDATION, in consultation with other voluntary organisations, calls for the assessment and amendment of these laws in order to secure policies that enlarge rather than restrict the space for voluntary action in India. It is pushing for the adoption of a National Policy for the Voluntary Sector. This alternative policy seeks to simplify Voluntary organisations access to funds and the process of Voluntary organisations registration, and to make Voluntary organisations more involved in designing, managing and monitoring development programmes.
Being an independent voice of the sector, HUMANITY FOUNDATION raises these concerns at different levels - from the local to the international. HUMANITY FOUNDATION continued its ongoing advocacy on new emerging issues in addition to the older ones.
Humanity Foundation Educational Program
To love and serve the poor presupposes something that has nothing to do with giving them our leftovers, or giving them the food we do not like, or the clothes we no longer wish to wear. The order of the day happens to be one of talking about the poor without choosing to talk with them. It is therefore a rare human virtue to mingle with the poor and help them. Our works of charity are nothing but only overflow of our love of God from within. Therefore the one who is most united to Him loves the neighbour most. As W.B. Yeats rightly said, "Education is not the filling of a Pail, but the lighting of a fire", the Foundation aims to bring up the students as energetic, influencing leaders than being followers. Since majority of the people are marginalised in India, educating those people becomes a crucial phenomenon. Though their children have higher potentials, economic poverty, social backwardness, ignorance, lack of schools in their locality make many children dropout from schools.
As the Foundation believes in empowering the marginalised through quality education it has started to give financial assistance to the poor and needy students studying in different schools as day scholars.
We properly identify their skills and interests and help them to pursue their higher studies in colleges and technical institutions and shape their future.
Humanity Foundation Health Programs
Even after decades of freedom, India is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhoea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases. The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women.
Humanity Foundation Health Camps is one such special initiative of Humanity Foundation to provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Customized health camps are organized extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.
Multi-disciplinary projects include gynaecological, paediatric, ophthalmology and surgical services etc., whereas other interventions can be general in nature. Duration of Humanity Foundation Health Camps vary between one day and 15 days with frequencies ranging between a month and a year.
The uniqueness of the model lies in its comprehensive approach where health promotion and prevention are given equal importance while curative care is administered. Medical care is one area, which needs urgent attention at right time to save lives. Lack of affordability by the poor deprives them of immediate medical attention resulting in avoidable casualties.
In order to provide immediate medical aid to the poor, as Humanity foundation dedicated herself to save thousands of lives from the jaws of death, the Humanity Foundation launched Ambulance Services.
The ambulance is equipped with all emergency facilities for the accident victims and cardiac patients. Generally, the rich reap the benefit of these facilities and poor are denied. Humanity foundation offers these facilities to the poor around the clock at free of cost. and Coordinate With Local Organizations Under this program conducts regular free medical camps and health awareness programs in villages with the help of a team of doctors and nursing staff

Humanity Foundation Information Collection, Analysis & Dissemination
Central to HUMANITY FOUNDATION 's advocacy work is providing information on policies and programmes of the Government and donor organisations to its members. HUMANITY FOUNDATION gathers information and provides perspectives on issues that affect the voluntary sector, for its members especially those that work at grass-roots level and do not have convenient access to mainstream media and national government offices. Information is disseminated through its bi-monthly newsletter E-Humanity foundation and also publishes books, monographs, conference proceedings and primers on themes concerning NGOs and civil society in general. The purpose is to educate, update and form an interactive platform with our members and associates which would cater to the myriad of issues they face in the operation of their organizations.

Humanity Foundation Computer Training Program
In the modern world, the computer plays a major role in economic development. It is imperative for the younger generation to fully equip themselves with the computer knowledge to enable them to earn a decent livelihood.
While the urban youth have sufficient avenues to learn how to use a computer, the rural youth (either for want of well equipped infrastructure or economic constraints) are denied such facilities and therefore lag behind in the social structure.
The overwhelming response our foundation received from the rural youth and their parents for Humanity foundation Educational Program prompted us to launch The Humanity foundation Rural Computer Education Program as an extension to promote the technical knowledge of the rural youth and reduce the urban-rural divide. faculties. In due course such training centers would be launched in more rural areas under this program.
Humanity Foundation Counselling Program
In the society there is much suffering in the world beyond quantification. Such material suffering includes suffering from hunger, suffering from homelessness, diseases. Nevertheless, in our thinking the greatest suffering is being lonely, feeling unloved, just having no one caused due to social exploitation. Even though the rapidly changing scenario on the social front has brought about welcome transformation among urbanites, its impact on the living condition of the rural folk is yet to reach the desired level. The exploitation of the vulnerable by the creamy layer continues to haunt the rural community. Hence, to retrieve them from the clutches of poverty and social discrimination, Humanity Foundation has established Counselling Centres for them. This creates confidence in their mental framework to overcome the barriers and live with dignity and honour.
