Brief Profile of HEARDS


HEARDS was initiated and registered in the year 1999 under the Societies Registration Act., 1860, reg. No. 363/99. Eminent persons in the field of education, social work and developmental interventions initiated it.  Concerned about the marginalization and poverty of a large section of our people especially in rural areas the society initiated its work in Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh.  Eradication of illiteracy is the sole aim of the society to eradicate poverty and to have a better future.  It caters to the socio-economic, educational, cultural, health and medical needs of the poor and the most backward people of the District.  It extends different developmental programmes to all the age groups of the target population, both common and specific developmental oriented, in nature.

The range of programmes extended by the Society is listed as follows:

  • Rehabilitation Programme for exploited children.
  • Program on awareness of eradication of child exploitation.
  • With this background we have ventured into non-formal education programme in 2001 through 5 Adult Literacy Centers in Chittoor District.  
  • Formation of youth and women self help groups to promote Income Generation Programmes.
  • Non-Formal Education and Awareness Programme for the whole village population.
  • Food and education program for the Government school children.
  • Self-Employment Training Programmes for women and youth groups in the target areas.
  • Assistance for the promotion of Self-Employment, Self-Reliant activity.
  • Vocational trade training for the deserving village women and the youth.
  • Widow and stranded women rehabilitation programme.
  • Vocational training for the disabled youth.
  • Safe Drinking Water Programs.
  • Drip Irrigation Program.

With all the above mentioned programs being under successful and positive implementation, the Society is exploring into new areas of development, thereby widening its ‘helping hands’ to the easy reachability and accessibility of the most poor and the downtrodden people of the District. With the ‘learning and practical’ experience in the field, the Society has began to concentrate on specific developmental programs for various target groups, based on their ‘need of the hour’, in addition to this, the developmental programs extended for the benefit of the entire target population.
