Himmotthan was born out of a desire of Sir Ratan Tata Trust, the oldest private philanthropic organization in the country, to work intensively in the Central Himalayan region. The Trust (Sir Ratan Tata Trust) implements scaled rural development programmes across the country, and had initiated work in Uttarakhand in 2002. In 2004, the Trust's activities in Uttarakhand received due recognition from the Government of Uttarakhand. An MoU was signed between the Trust and the state government in which both parties agree to collaborate on rural development issues in the state for an initial ten year period. The agreement was renewed for another ten years in 2014. The Himmotthan was originally set up to incubate ideas through pilot projects, upscale strategies, data base management, to coordinate works with the state government of Uttarakhand, and to monitor ongoing programs in the state being implemented by the Trust. Registered in 2007, the Himmotthan Society works among the rural mountain communities by organizing and developing sustainable enterprises linked to livestock, agriculture, non timber forest produce, and intervening for better education, access to safe water and sanitation and energy. The reach of Himmotthan's programmes has extended to over 87,000 households.
