The principal objective of The India Harmony Foundation is building bridges between different communities and promoting national harmony. Restoring, through a sustained series of confidence-building measures, peace, harmony and genuine fellowship between different communities living in India. The clear intent would be to reverse, across the country, the feeling of alienation that has crept into the psyche, the hearts and the minds of people, so that once again India becomes in every sense truly, ONE NATION AND ONE SOCIETY. Apart from extending direct assistance and succor to victims of communal disturbances, the Foundation shall provide an umbrella to all small NGO’s across the country in their endeavor to bring justice, economic and social security to such families.
