Helping Hand for India was set up as a charitable organization in May 2017 in Pörtschach am Wörthersee. Its main objective is to finance the construction of a school for poor and orphaned children in Vijayawada, Southern India. Since the association relies on a number of unpaid volunteers among its members and incurs no organizational or administrative costs whatsoever, every Euro donated is contributed in its entirety to the project.
Our guiding principle is: ”Life is a gift to be shared”.
We have therefore chosen active solidarity with the many children who have been forgotten by society.
At its inaugural meeting on August 25, 2017, the members duly elected the following board to individually represent the association for all intents and purposes:
President: Prof. Mag. Benno Schollum
Vice-President: Mag. Dr. Dominik Schantl
Treasurer: Eleanor Hope
Deputy Treasurer: Dr. Ulrike Loisel
Secretary: Ing. Gerti Baumberger
Deputy Secretary: Chris Sollberger
Board Member: Heidi Wienerroither
Board Member: Horst Pollak
Auditor: Mag. Hartwig Allmaier
Auditor: Ing. Alois Sauseng
