About our foundation

Why UP

Uttar Pradesh is by far the largest state in India and would be the fifth largest administrative unit in the world after China, India, USA & Indonesia if it were a country. Being part of the EAG states, UP’s development lags far behind the Millennium development targets fixed for the country. As HDI in UP is one of the lowest, the E&H Foundation will focus its work in the state, thereby building India by developing UP.

Journey so Far

After doing in-depth research, E&H started its journey from Farrukhabad in UP. We have provided quality education from classes 1-5 to over 19,000 children. 80% of students are first-gen learners and over 50% are girls. Since the problem of quality education demands scalable options, we have built long term partnerships with 2 program partners, 8 corporate partners and over 500 committed individuals since inception.
