About Himmotthan

In 2001, Tata Trusts initiated Himmothan Pariyojana (HMP) to target the root causes of under development in the Central Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. Himmotthan Society, an associate organization of Tata Trusts, was set up to oversee, manage and implement the Himmothan Pariyojana's programme. It co-ordinates and implements the programme and has begun taking up larger programmes and wider coverage through other funding sources. The Society currently works in the state of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Leh region and is focused on working among the rural mountain communities by developing sustainable community owned enterprises linked to livestock, agriculture, non-timber forest produce, and intervening for better education, access to safe water, sanitation and energy.The current Aim (Year 2020) of the programme is to enhance the quality of life of over 100,000 Households through self-sustained community institutions and resilient livelihood interventions. Himmothan Pariyojana has reached over 87,000 rural households across 1600 villages in these three states.
