My daughter was a part of humanity for children volunteers this past year, and it was a wonderful experience from what I have heard. The volunteers and board members are nothing short of outstanding human beings.
My sister was a volunteer for Humanity for Children in 2015. In my eyes, the experience has changed her life completely. She cam back very humble (not that she was not before). But something about her changed for the better. From what I heard from her, the groups that are picked to go, are selected carefully. Everyone that I she has told me about was an outstanding human being, it restored humanity to be honest. They are able to make a huge difference in communities by finding innovative and smart ways to keep their project sustainable and running for a long time. This organization is a wonderful organization to get involved with.
My wife went to Africa with Humanity for Children this past summer and the work they did was amazing. The way they are touching so many lives is awesome. They are not there for a one time fix, but to help the people become self-sustaining and thrive as a community. I know it changed my wife's life and I hope to someday be able to go with her and work with HFC and the people of Africa as well.
I have had the privilege to see how Humanity for Children has developed over the years. My husband, had always wanted to travel to Africa and contribute to making the lives of the people he met better. Through this organization I have seen how the lives of many people have been changed including his. He and this organization amaze me with their dedication and commitment to helping and improving the lives of the people this organization is dedicated to serving. Not only does this organization help change the lives of people they work with, but I have seen the students return from working with this organization changed and inspired to make a difference in the world.
I have been in contact with HFC board members and volunteers in different capacities since 2009 and had the chance to visit the Rota dispensary in Kenya. It was inspiring to see an organization put all of it's efforts, resources and man power into their programs. The volunteers I met there were of an unrivaled caliber, dedicated, passionate and driven to help despite challenges and set backs that naturally occur in any worthwhile endeavor. From what I have seen of HFC it is an organization that truly keeps it's actions in line with it's goals of serving the community from a position of respect and sustainability - efficiently and passionately.
