Mission Statement

My Himachal joins hands with Indian and foreign physicians to provide child health care and nutritional education in remote villages of Himachal Pradesh. My Himachal also provide scholarships to poor and deserving students every year. Besides these activities My Himachal has also been instrumental in providing basic health care and nutritional training to local women in rural Himachal. My Himachal in association with students from SP Jain Institute of Management of Research (Mumbai) has carried out studies on various issues like "health of the traditional Kullu weaving industry" revealing startling facts on these issues. My Himachal makes recommendations to the local government on the bases of these studies, leading to a swift action by the government.
