Head Held High Foundation
Head Held High Foundation is a Bangalore-based non-profit on a quest to tackle humanity’s oldest and most persistent problem: poverty. Along with a passionate team and many committed partners, we work to reduce inequity in all its forms.
Our story began with the stories of eight young people from rural Karnataka who were part of our first youth transformation batch. These individuals had not had a chance to finish their schooling or explore possibilities beyond their immediate environment. At the end of six months, however, they had transformed into more confident versions of their former selves. They have since gone on to build fulfilling lives and to emerge as changemakers in their communities.
Since that powerful beginning, we have grown into one of India’s topmost non-profits driving youth transformation, women empowerment and livelihood development in rural communities. Our poverty alleviation efforts in these locations include assessment, expanding social protection, financial inclusion, skills-based training, job placement support, mentoring and more.
