About Helpers Near Me

As the name suggests, Helpers Near Me (HNM) helps you find & hire workers near you.

HNM uses technology and a lot of groundwork to help you connect directly with workers without any middlemen or commissions.

On one end, HNM helps the underprivileged workers of India find local employment, free of cost, directly from nearby employers like yourself. And on the other, the digital infrastructure built around HNM makes it easy, quick, reliable & affordable for anyone to find & hire 100+ profiles of nearby workers.

With a vision to end poverty, forced labour, worker exploitation, and human trafficking, HNM is working towards building an unbiased and inclusive digital ecosystem where the underprivileged workforce of India can join the platform easily and access local employment free of cost, with or without smartphones.

HNM believes having enough local employment opportunities allows the workers to find a better working environment, better salaries and a chance to improve their & family's quality of life.

From time to time, HNM also engages with Government bodies and NGOs to spread the accessibility of the platform to as many workers all over India as possible.

Please note that HNM is not an NGO. It is a for-profit social enterprise.

HNM makes business decisions based on the social impact it brings to our world. The platform also looks at financial growth in the process. This helps HNM self-sustain the system.

HNM's parent company is INeedAHelp Technologies Pvt Ltd.

We believe:

Simple choices affect the world we live in.

We are flooded with multiple choices for things we consume every day - Which Tea/Coffee? Which Cereal? Which Car? What kind of Fruits & Vegetables? Etc.

At times, these simple choices we make every moment affect our environment, planet or a group of individuals or community, directly or indirectly. Or else they are just simple means of earning financial gains.

It is okay if an enterprise earns revenues for itself. However, it would be great if financial gains could also impact our world. And therefore, make the world better than what it is.

At HNM, we believe with the help of technology, it is possible to make a digital ecosystem which can help millions of Indian workforce find local employment opportunities. The ecosystem can sustain itself in the process with a nominal fee. We firmly believe that technology today can impact the lives of millions in multiple ways.

With your help, we can make this happen.

So, go ahead. Connect with your nearby workers directly. And impact the life of one or a few of whom you can.
