The Unitarian Universalist Holdeen India Program (UUHIP) works with organizations of India’s most vulnerable groups as they seek to advance empowerment and promote equity. The Program is committed to enabling these groups to transform their social and economic conditions in directions of their own choosing. Rather than provide grants for sectoral, discrete, or time-based projects, UUHIP supports long-term organizational partnerships in a spirit of solidarity. UUHIP also facilitates extended volunteering opportunities for those who wish to apply their professional skills while serving in India.
The Program was established thanks to a generous bequest from Jonathan Holdeen, a businessman and attorney with an interest in assisting the most impoverished people of India. In 1984 UUHIP was organized in its current form as a non-sectarian religious and philanthropic trust dedicated to India’s social and economic development. It is part of the UUA's International Resources Office.
UUHIP is governed by the Board of Trustees of the UUA and UUHIP's own Board of Advisors.
