For over three decades, HHWS has been creating a positive change by providing education opportunities, relief and community development activities through ongoing sponsorship programs and development initiatives for disadvantaged children and their communities across India.
HHWS focuses on a two-pronged approach to deliver opportunities for the marginalized groups; firstly, providing financial assistance towards the education of disadvantaged children through a network of private English medium schools, colleges and vocational training centers; and secondly, through the implementation of development initiatives and projects focused on building teaching staff capacity, infrastructure, resources, and long-term sustainability within the schools and surrounding communities.
Today, HHWS sponsors over 5,000 students in more than 50 High Schools and 30 colleges across India. HHWS extends assistance to needy students till they complete a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, HHWS funds 4 children’s homes and 2 special schools to support the Orphans and Vulnerable children.
