Welcome and thank you for visiting us at the Freedom from Poverty Foundation.
The Freedom from Poverty Foundation brings together a huge cross section of humanitarians ranging from doctors, to accountants, to students, who wish to make a significant difference in the daily lives of the less fortunate, and help them build for a better future.
Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for the impoverished people of Uttar Pradesh, one of the poorest states in India, by providing access to education and healthcare to the less fortunate so that they can break out of the cycle of poverty. To be more specific, we provide education for children and adults, as well as health-related services for all ages, and run mobile clinics in the remote areas of the region. Since 1988, we have succeeded in building two schools with 10,000 graduates as of 2004 and our mobile clinics have treated over 200,000 patients.
Over the years, The Foundation has relied on the generosity and talents of many individuals from around the globe and who work in many different professions. They all donate a variety of skills, services and help us with fundraising all with one single goal – to “educate, heal and elevate” the lives of those less fortunate. Our team serves in one of the most disadvantaged regions of India – eastern Uttar Pradesh – by providing access to education and health care.
The Freedom from Poverty Foundation is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors and is run by a wonderful group of local volunteers for our fundraising and awareness campaign, and a dedicated group of professionals (medical, financial, educational etc) who ensure that our annual missions are planned, managed and completed in the most efficient and cost effective manner.
Our Mission is ever-expanding each year, through the grace of the collaborative efforts of extraordinary people around the world, who are driven by their shared desire and limitless love to help those in need.
