Our History

Timeline of EA

  • Sensing a need that there was not a national or international organization to empower people with disabilities in India, HelpHandicap Foundation (HHF) was formed in May 2001. A small initiative that started with a few programs in Hyderabad soon spread across India. The programs offered by HHF identified gaps and unmet needs of people with disabilities. Within their first few years, the programs had already transformed the lives of hundreds of people with disabilities.

  • We were granted tax-exempt status in the US by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charity

  • A new logo and website were launched. Programs in India were expanded to additional areas. We received the prestigious IMC’s Humanitarian Award.

  • Our name was changed to EquallyAble to better reflect our expanded program areas and international focus.

  • Our website and logo were updated, and we expanded our social media presence.

  • For an overview of our many highlights this year, see our 2017 Year At A Glance.

  • Our Founder, Mohammed Yousuf, won the prestigious Henry Viscardi Achievement Award as an exemplary leader in the disability community.
