Human Development Society (HDS) was established in 2003 in Delhi. The focus areas include health, environment, capacity building and welfare of women. Its projects are in Delhi, Odisha and Haryana.

Their activities include:

  • Targeted Intervention (TI) for Injecting Drug Users (IDUs): HDS has implemented this program with special focus on IDUs since 2010, under the National AIDS Control Programme (NACP) which is now in the IV phase. Drug users are more susceptible to HIV infection due to their drug injecting behaviour, poverty, and lack of education.  HDS runs this program in collaboration with the Delhi State AIDS Control Society and Government of National Capital Territory-Delhi. The aim of NACP IV is to intensify and consolidate prevention services, with a focus on High-Risk Groups (HRGs) and vulnerable population. The key objectives of the intervention is to ensure proactive screening for HIV and quality health services to HRGs, increased use of condoms, registration of all HIV positives, and strengthening community participation. In FY15, total coverage of IDUs under different project components was 4,688.
  • Promotion of Organic farming: HDS promotes eco-friendly organic farming to conserve soil fertility, water, and bio-diversity, strengthen livelihood capabilities, and reduce dependence on harmful pesticides and chemical residues. Since mid-2013, over 100 farmers have been practicing organic farming with little handholding support from HDS, which is indicative of the project’s sustainability.
  • Monitoring of Mahila Panchayats (MPs): These panchayats help resolve crimes against women. HDS monitors these panchayats with the help of women in the community. In FY15, HDS monitored activities of 89 MPs which were managed by 59 partner NGOs.
  • Academy: HDS Academy was conceptualised keeping in view the need of skill development in the country. The Academy offers online and offline courses. While offline courses include classroom training on computer software, the online courses initially include two courses, viz. Community Health & Social Care and Non-profit & Social Enterprise Management.
  • Evaluation of impact of CSR projects: HDS has entered into a seven-year agreement with Indian Oil Corporation’s R&D Centre for conducting various activities under the company’s CSR plans. HDS, as a part of the assignment will conduct baseline surveys for projects to be implemented during FY12-FY19. The study covers Primary Health Center, Anangpur and schools for disabled children.
