5H Programme – The All Round Care (5H: Homes, Healthcare, Hygiene, Human values & Harmony in diversity)

The 5H programme aims at ensuring that every rural area/village has Homes for the homeless, Healthcare, Hygiene, Human Values and Harmony in diversity. Set up in 1997, the 5H programme acts as a catalyst for social transformation. The programme aims to eradicate poverty, misery, disease and to ensure peace and harmony in rural and tribal areas worldwide.

Young people from the local community undergo the Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP). This gives them the skills, motivation and ability to initiate and lead service projects in their own villages based on local needs.

Only a strong spiritual foundation brings self-esteem and self-confidence that is unshakeable. It is this combination of personal inner strength, as well as skills and leadership training that ensures the long-term effectiveness and sustainability of this programme.

The individuals and communities become self-reliant at the grassroots, both socially and economically, this ensures the effects of the programme are long-term and sustainable.
