Chairpersons Greeting

It gives me immense pleasure to present to you Humana People to People India’s (HPPI) Annual Report for 2018-19.

Continuing our collaborative efforts with the people of India to contribute to the global Sustainable Development Goals, we impacted more than 2 million people during this reporting period.

This year marked the 10th year since the launch of the Necessary Teacher Training (NeTT) Programme in India. In the past decade, the NeTT Programme has successfully graduated more than 9,300 teachers, many of whom are today transforming the way primary education is imparted in our classrooms.

Continuing in our efforts to provide universal access to quality education to all, the Kadam Programme for out-of-school children helped to successfully integrate nearly 16,000 children into formal schools this year. Furthermore, the Kadam+ Programme was launched this year to train primary school teachers in government schools with the aim to improve learning outcomes of the students.

With a focus on poverty alleviation and social inclusion of women, HPPI continued to expand its projects in the areas of women entrepreneurship, literacy and skill development, reaching out to 200,000 women in 2018-19. With a strategic intent to ensure maximum impact on rural women, these projects are often implemented in the same geographical areas as HPPI’s Microfinance programme.

The rising threat of global warming has prompted us to expand our environmental initiatives with renewed tenacity. Nearly 200 farm-level biogas plants were constructed this year to provide low-income households with renewable sources of energy, while over one lakh (100,000) saplings have been planted across the country.

In the area of health, we have continued to work to improve the overall well-being of the communities we work with. HPPI envisions a tuberculosis-free India and being one of the few organisations working on the issue of TB in homeless, we were able to reach out to 17,000 individuals with information, care and treatment.

The relentless and unyielding efforts of all the HPPI teams form the bedrock of all our work. These efforts, however, would not have been possible without the continued support of all our partners, to whom we extend our heartfelt gratitude.

While all of us in HPPI look back at the year gone by with a sense of pride and gratitude, we are mindful of the challenges that lie ahead and understand that we have our work cut out. Even so, with continued support of our partners in all our endeavours, we look forward to continuing our collaboration with the people of India to bring about sustainable development, with optimism and excitement
