The earth has been stripped of her original beauty and natural calamities like flood, drought and earthquakes – the not so natural phenomenon occurs as man made disaster. The survival of the major population of the world are an impossible dream today and are suffering from psychological distress, the people of the third countries even don’t know the taste of the fruit of freedom, - freedom from hunger, insecurity, injustice and indignity.


Today we see no end to the multifarious forms of social, economical and environmental problems prevalent in India. Numerous corruption, ruthless exploitations, poor education system and exploding population are increasing unemployment and poverty day by day. Massive exploitation of natural resources, environmental rap and ecological crisis, has poisoned the air, ravaged the soil, stripped the forest bare and corrupted the water resources leading to an unsecured future. The country’s education curriculums do not include appreciation of nature, experiential education and understanding of environmental crisis and its effect on us. The problems we are facing today, demands a change of attitudes, values and priorities on a political, cultural and personal level. It requires a bold rethinking of how we relate to each other and our world.


What we need is a proper education system that allows the human potentials to contribute towards a peaceful and healthy world. We believe that an Eco-friendly Education System has a critical role to play in becoming a part of the solution.

With this view, to make the people aware of the grave problems the human family is facing today and also to investigate deep into the matter the UNITED HUMAN RESOURCE (UHR), a revolutionary non-confessional humanitarian social organization was formed in the summer of 2001. UHR is dedicated to launching Human Resource Developmental activities associated with environmental and socioeconomic issues in India. The specific objective of the organization is to constitute the Eco-friendly Education System to impart vocational and technical training in Natural Resource Management to enable individuals to tackle their environment everyday and ensure their survival, sustenance and prosperity. The Eco-friendly Educational Project of UHR will also provide General Education in an environmental context to promote the overall aspects of daily life - Practical, Social, Moral, Aesthetic and Intellectual.


Our Mission is to educate the underprivileged youths for their sustainable development and arrange technical and financial support for their self-establishment enhancing their standards of living, general, physical and economical wellbeing. Our democratic struggle "Live and Let Live" will lead the Socioeconomic Revolution demanding the right to survival and right to development of the poor. We are determined to constitute the Eco-Friendly education system for general development of the people and environment. Our vision is of a world where the poor people can realize their full potential as a human being in a society. We are confident that Mother Nature will help us every way as the friend, philosopher, nurse and guide. We know that it is Nature where one can find peace, solace, harmony and tranquility.



In order to meet the required goal UHR has begun by establishing a development program, the ‘Traveler’s Mission’, aimed at protecting human rights and fostering responsible youth care and education in an environmental context. This program also serves as a communication platform that will enable people of different countries to share their experiences and work together for the development of multi cultural care facilities for the underprivileged.

The purpose of the 'Traveler's mission' is to organize broadminded people from all over the world to form a Volunteer’s Community to work for the development of the socioeconomic conditions of the poor people of India in relation to the Environment.

'Traveler's mission' arranges for the participants stay with the natives mainly in the South and the Northeastern parts of India enabling them get the reality of this third world, which is a land of ancient history colorful culture and people, superb scenarios and some of the best walking on earth. UHR Director, Pranab Saikia leads the mission and provides guidance and all assistance to the participants in every step.

The main aims of the 'Traveler's mission' are:

Encouraging them to develop their capacities using natural and local resources in a planned, scientific and sustained manner, making them aware of the ongoing degradation and destruction of the environment and its consequences for their well being.

Northeast is the richest part of India with its natural resources. It is the matter of great agony that the people of this land have no scope to utilize their own resources to reduce their poverty. No initiatives are taken in awakening the people to the key issues of sustainable development, to look over the linkage between ecology and human development and good management of their land, water and forest. The entire region is neglected by the Indian regime since the British left. The irrational use of natural resources, injustice and inhumanity causing all round discontentment and misery of the people in the region. Unless and until the young generation is educated to come forward and root out these evils, the future of the land is bleak.

To do something for the underprivileged, it is significant to enter deep into the people and know them in real.

This research program also include exploring some parts of south India, to experience the environmental resource, ecological factors in relation to human resource development, democracy, human rights and social, political and cultural differences within the country.

‘Traveler’s Mission’ provides you the unique opportunity to get into the natives, be a part of them and learn about their land, culture, way of living, the prospects for their sustainable development etc.

Staying with the locals you will find the relation between human values and tradition and the linkage between cultural beliefs, environment and socioeconomic stability. This knowledge will help you to educate the people to develop their capacities for proper utilization of natural and local resources in a planned, scientific and sustained manner.

Apart from your work, you may interact with the children giving them English conversation training, Sanitation and hygiene related education, Health awareness, Gardening, Drawing, Playing and Entertainment programs like Music, Dancing etc.
