Every being plays an equally significant role in building a sustainable world, and one can not be considered inferior or superior to another. All of existence is made of the same life force and energy. Still, as humans, our belief tends to be one of superiority and domination of nature. What is the reason behind this belief? What is it that we are truly seeking, and is it necessary to compete with the planet and other people and lead a stressful life in order to find it? How else can we spend the time between birth and death and create a truly happy and sustainable life? The aim of TGG is to explore these possibilities. We cannot change anyone in this world, however, we can transform ourselves into responsible human beings.
Engaging with the TGG Family is intended to help you cultivate a deeper sense of humbleness and groundedness. In order to do this, the Foundation follows a celestial model for its operation: Each individual is self-guided (acting directly from inspiration arising from her/his consciousness) and is accountable and responsible for those actions. TGG Foundation is committed to upholding ‘Oneness’ above all ideologies and belief systems in this world. Therefore, all participants must submit a self-declaration to have no affiliation with polarizing thoughts and ideologies including religious and political during her/his engagement with TGG.
NOTE: RHM Registration is not applicable for beneficiaries seeking help and support from TGG Foundation. They can reach out to us through FARYAAD
Responsible Human Mission is an impersonal code that connects all those around the Globe who are on a similar pursuit. Responsible Human Mission upholds Universal values that connect all members in their mutual pursuit of transformation. We ask that only those who genuinely find an alignment with our values should participate in TGG. It should be a willful commitment, rather than one made out of compulsion or expectation. Because the foundation of our organization is non-affiliation with any specific ideology or belief, we allow all of our actions and resulting impact to emerge from what we call “effortless action.” This means that instead of acting in the name of passionate convictions, creeds, or moral obligations, we allow our actions to subtly arise from a place of ease and flow found within. Consequently, TGG does not require or desire you to participate with an attitude of overworking or excessive effort. Opportunities to have an impact through TGG can look very different for each person. Some may want to visit one of our in-person locations, many will feel inspired to contribute remotely, still, others may want to simply speak on and share the principles of TGG and share their memories and experience of their time with us. All participation is valuable and welcomed; we ask only that you let it arise through the “effortless action” and inner ease that we encourage.
The Code of Practice describes our conduct and it is the guiding principles that connected all the members of TGG Family, your alignment with the same is highly essential to engage with TGG.
We imagine a world of healthy and empowered communities that sustain, manage, and distribute their resources equitably without harming the ecological biodiversity whilst also ensuring natural resources for current and future generations.

Most importantly we believe we “need to be the change we wish to see in the world” and inspire others to be active in their communities through our example.

People Planet Partnership (PPP): It is a sustainable rural development model established by TGG Foundation through stakeholder engagement, that ensures responsibility and accountability at all level. This model of development aims to engage people with natures in a conscious manner through a code of practice that is impersonal in nature.
Community Development: We promote sustainable living practices (live minimal) to foster social upliftment and efficient use of human productivity.
Equality: We encourage equal respect of all individuals in the community regardless of religion, caste, ethnicity, and gender.
Social Responsibility: Through this equal respect of individuals we hope to foster a sense of social responsibility of all individuals to equally contribute their best ability to their community.
Environmental Responsibility: We are committed to effective natural resource management including renewable energy use and zero waste to ensure a harmonious relationship between communities and the environment.
Accountability & Transparency: We remain accountable and transparent to our communities about our funds and management decisions, giving space for others to provide their feedback and opinions. We are also determined to cultivate a society that is equally accountable and responsible to their community, locally, regionally, and globally.
Humanism is ethical. It affirms the worth, dignity, and autonomy of the individual and the right of every human being to the greatest possible freedom compatible with the rights of others. Humanists have a duty of care to all humanity including future generations. Humanists believe that morality is an intrinsic part of human nature based on understanding and a concern for others, needing no external sanction.
Humanism is rational. It seeks to use science creatively, not destructively. Humanists believe that the solutions to the world’s problems lie in human thought and action rather than divine intervention. Humanism advocates the application of the methods of science and free inquiry to the problems of human welfare. But Humanists also believe that the application of science and technology must be tempered by human values. Science gives us the means but human values must propose the ends.
Humanism supports democracy and human rights. Humanism aims at the fullest possible development of every human being. It holds that democracy and human development are matters of right. The principles of democracy and human rights can be applied to many human relationships and are not restricted to methods of government.
Humanism insists that personal liberty must be combined with social responsibility. Humanism ventures to build a world on the idea of the free person responsible to society, and recognizes our dependence and responsibility for the natural world. Humanism is undogmatic, imposing no creed upon its adherents. It is thus committed to education free from indoctrination. Humanism is a response to the widespread demand for an alternative to dogmatic religion. The world’s major religions claim to be based on revelations fixed for all time, and many seek to impose their worldview on all of humanity. Humanism recognizes that reliable knowledge of the world and ourselves arises through a continuing process of observation, evaluation, and revision.
Humanism values artistic creativity and imagination and recognizes the transforming power of art. Humanism affirms the importance of literature, music, and the visual and performing arts for personal development and fulfillment. Humanism is a life stance aiming at the maximum possible fulfillment through the cultivation of ethical and creative living and offers an ethical and rational means of addressing the challenges of our time. Humanism can be a way of life for everyone everywhere.
The world is passing through a tough time due to intolerance, distorted belief systems, terrorism, poverty, greed, ego, etc. Countries are investing more of their time and money on weapons than in the welfare of their people. Due to ignorance people are fighting in the name of God to prove whose belief system is real and legitimate.
As we are all part of this universe and are made of elements present within the universe, the Energy that connects us with the creation is present within us. This very realisation of the existence of the Universal Energy within us and within every living creature makes us more responsible and we learn to respect every creation of this world. This is where the origin of humanity comes first. We wish to share this message to establish peace and harmony and working for the welfare of the world community.
We believe that the mission to help someone and make their life better must be self-driven. It would help if every well-earned person could contribute just a small portion to reverse the inequalities present within our society thereby improving the overall literacy, livelihood, health and prosperity for all. It is our responsibility to provide the less fortunate with the minimum necessities to allow them to pursue a better life.
The word “Faryaad” loosely translates into English as a “call for help”, an enforcer of justice, or defender of righteousness. Faryaad represents the most efficient means of contacting us, serving as the primary channel for every submissions. The majority of submissions we receive are initially processed through the government and its administrative apparatus, allowing individuals to access the benefits they are entitled to. In cases where the responsible authorities do not fulfill their obligations within a 30-day timeframe, the matter is escalated to the Responsible Human Mission members. Furthermore, we collaborate with Human Rights Organizations, International Associations, and engage with the public and media as and when it is necessary. In the event of critical issues, the matter may also be brought before the judiciary for resolution.
At the TGG Foundation we believe that all people within our society have a right to defend themselves in a court of law. As a society, our laws, codes and morality should stretch to cover every man, woman and child regardless of their race, creed or colour.
Consciously recognizing our shared humanity is imperative to maintaining a compassionate and just society. The harsh reality is that there are many members of our communities who are unable to access the system designed for their welfare, protection and to defend them, often due to financial reasons. Thus, the most vulnerable are those with the least protection. We assist in handling such submissions related to issues which arise in the realm of fundamental rights & social justice. You can reach out to us by filing out the submission form and submitting it.
The purpose of education is to create good human-beings and to open their eyes to connect them to the realities of our world. As we know that all inventions and innovations are a copy of something that already exists in this universe, we are not creating anything new. Instead, we are only offering a different way to approach this shared vision. The realization of this knowledge enhances our perception, making us aware of the responsibility we have to the actions we perform throughout our lives.
Most of the developments that we see around us are destruction in its truest sense; the cities of today stand testimony to these findings. In this rapidly transforming world so often driven by greed and ego, natural resources are over-exploited for the benefit of the selected few only to be irresponsibly wasted, while the majority of our population are struggling simply to make ends meet. Us humans can be so much caught up in our own creations that we can forget to see the sustainability of the real world along with its rich and ever-evolving biodiversity. This forgetting destroys access to healthy food and the ecosystem, eventually leading to the elimination of many other important species on our planet. The population of our species is on the rise, and if left unchecked, will continue to further destabilize our already suffering planet, ultimately leading to unimaginable impacts beyond anyone’s control. Many are blinded in part due to a lack in the sharing of this knowledge along with the present education system which has failed to create consciously responsible citizens. As such an initiative of TGG’s Nature Connection program is to provide families with young infants the opportunity to ground into the growth of their family

Ethical Values: The knowledge acquired through realization enables people to follow “dharma” (ethics) in life. Farmers will be empowered to produce pesticide-free and healthy food for consumption with the realization that they are responsible for the health of many people who consume what they produce. Teachers will focus more on creating good human beings than mere components in a machine who are compatible to corporate needs. Public servants will understand their responsibilities towards society and will work for the welfare of the people to make their lives better. The people will be able to get justice without the increased delay so often experienced within the present system.
Chemical Free life: We live in a world where everything is becoming increasingly artificial. Manufactured synthetic chemicals have replaced natural substances. By making them so much a part of our daily life artificiality is becoming habitual. Our intelligence is transforming into artificial intelligence and people are thinking more in terms of activities void of humanity. We need to seriously consider the high potential that we are becoming our own worst enemy if we continue on this path.
Social Enterprises: Profit motive should not be the only priority for any activities, it should ultimately be a contributing factor in reducing the inequalities which currently exist in the system, helping to create more employment/livelihood opportunities to people.
Self Help Groups: People from rural areas can rise above any individual weakness by working as a team, combining diverse skills to become their own employer rather than being an employee/labour, thus working towards improving their living standards and helping many others in their villages.
Aarnayam: Protecting nature is the only form of sustainable practice which humans should focus on to perpetuate our earth’s richly diverse existence. We, being the most versatile species on this planet, are the most irresponsible as well. The growing population of humans are a great threat to this world. It is the responsibility of every individual to conserve as much area as possible to protect and maintain the existing biome, working strongly together to combat climate change and the exploitation of natural resources. We should say “No” to plastic and change the “use and trash” model by embracing responsible consumption practices with the intention to create a better future for upcoming generations to experience a healthy planet containing beautiful biodiversity.
Growing population of humans: It is one of the biggest disasters which need to be controlled through proper legislation and shared realisation. There is an alarming number of species becoming extinct each year due to the ever-expanding human race. We must care for the planet and its inhabitants in its totality. We therefore encourage and provide opportunities to people who have been conscious about the habitat and have contributed to less destruction.
We are establishing an RHM Center, a sanctuary free from divisive ideologies, solely dedicated to humanity. Within this sanctuary, you can actively engage as a volunteer in our Culture and Knowledge sharing program, providing a platform for creative minds to unlock their potential. It’s also a hub for research students to delve into sustainability studies and for Global Citizens, part of the Nomad Community of Responsible Humans, to embrace minimalism and the art of sustainable living. There’s a place for every responsible human in our RHM Center once it’s fully realized, and every contribution you make, like a single brick, plays a vital role in shaping this vision. Your contribution can be the spark that ignites the much-needed social transformation we all yearn for. Join us in building a brighter future, one brick at a time.
