What is HFF???
HFF popularly known and easily remembered, in its elaborated form is Humanity First Foundation, an NGO licensed and registered under Indian Government in Feb 2012 involving in social projects and also to voice the human rights of the less privileged and weaker sectors. The HFF Member is empowered all over the country to fight for the human rights for bettering the system in the country (India) and the living status of its citizens. The vision of the institution is “To teach the youth nationwide about Human Rights and promoting social welfare thus helping them to become valuable advocates for the promotion of Tolerance and Peace.
This country spread organization was primarily established in Jan 2011 by a young noble Indian Sri Naved Shaikh as one man army. The inception of HFF was initiated instantly when Sri Naved Shaikh encountered a helpless and a hopeless situation of an Indian 10yrs old child suffering from hunger trying to satisfy from a smelly dirty garbage bin at the roadside and the story is truly a heartbreaking one.
Since then, the Founder and the National President HFF Naved Shaikh had no turning back, who built his army countrywide with a force of 30,000+ members today, making noise at every corner of the country with one and only dream ‘EMPOWERING PEOPLE’, thereby accomplishing several novel and enormous size projects. The outfit ‘HFF’ is thriving in the country through sincere humanitarian services involving the people from all sectors, communities, castes and status. ‘Indian / Hindustani’ is the religion of HFF. The journey from 2011 have seen many phases of services towards humanity and for its rights through various projects such as Project Ahaar, Pj Child Support, Pj Udaan, Pj Know your rights, Pj Umeed, Pj Women Empowerment, Pj Helpage, to name a few. The current ongoing social project is PROJECT SHIKSHA, primarily to fight against the illegal donations and corrupt education system, executed through Save India Human chain campaign at Mumbai on 24th April, which will be a great turnaround as thousands of human join arms against the system.

In the recent past, HFF Muscat team comprising of Indian activists and leaders from different walks of life and communities generously supported the noble cause of ‘Blanket Drive’ distributing to the homeless sleeping on the streets on the cold winter nights, help offered to the ailing child’s treatment, feeding the hungry on the streets under Proj Aahaar, “Adopt A child” to educate children under ongoing ‘Project Shiksha’. All the projects executed under the banner of HFF are approved by HFF Head Office, upon scrutiny covering the legalities, intricacies and requirement.
