(We are including links of some of the coverage that our projects have received in the various publications, national and local).

Help: Not many have the resources to meet the potential they have. To Help them is to Help their families, Help the community, Help the City and Help the Nation. To reach out with an unselfish motive is the first but important step in our Vision.

Educate: Knowledge is power. There is no denying the fact that the greatest favor our community needs is to up the literacy rate. Education will be on the forefront of every strategy we undertake for our society.

Associate: Joining hands with other individuals and organizations is a way to move forward. Unity is strength. We are looking forward to Associate with as many entities that operate in different ways for a common good.

Rehabilitate: Going further there is support needed for individuals where we plan to rehabilitate people who need help.Teach: To mentor, counsel and transform people to live the purpose for which they are on this earth is the end product we want to achieve with Heart Foundation.
