Our 2015 Project Team just returned from East Africa where we monitored existing projects and explored new ones. It was a great team -- Bret, Kaitlin, Meredith, Tony, Azza, Bernard, Luca, Big Poppi (Dan) and me. Our economic empowerment projects in Rwanda and Tanzania are exceeding our expectations and we look forward to our second year of the Bright Light Campaign at Gashanda Primary School. We thank our partners -- Ernest, Dieudonne, John English, Emmanuel, Jean Claude, Toto, Israel, Robin, Daniel, Ndinini, Mayor Aphrodise, and so many more. Although we have no paid administrative staff, HFC continues to make a difference in the lives of people, particularly children, in East Africa. Please join us as we work with our partners in Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya. Bob

I am so proud to be working with Humanity for Children. Most people don't realize that nobody in the organization's leadership gets paid for their time and that all of us pay our own expenses when we travel to Africa. The only paid staff are three on-the-ground workers in East Africa.

When asked about our administrative overhead, we can be very truthful when we say that almost 100% of our contributions go directly to projects in Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya. We are a lean and transparent organization that is always seeking to improve.

On behalf of our board of directors, I want to thank our Executive Director, Kathryn Morgan, for her efforts and commitment to our work, and to all of our volunteers who serve the organization with great passion and enthusiasm.

HFC is an organization that changes the lives of children by changing their environment. What a humbling opportunity to take part in helping others to gain independence through sustainability and provide children with a chance to become what they dare to dream......

Can a small nonprofit humanitarian organization make a difference in this world? Especially when it is staffed exclusively by volunteers and not even the executive director gets paid? The answer is YES...just look at Humanity for Children. I've been involved with HFC since 2007 when, on its behalf, I circled Lake Victoria in East Africa to identify possible locations for new health clinics in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. Since then, I've traveled to HFC project sites each summer and have been blown away with the positive ripple effect of what HFC's actions have triggered. The organization has learned a lot over the years and embraces a set of values that puts the people we serve in control of what we do...our job is help them achieve their goals. Our projects must be focused on what the people want and need, not what we think they need. They must be in true collaboration and partnership...we aren't doing anything without their involvement, and they must sustainable. These are the keys. HFC makes a difference and it does so being a true steward of our donor's time, energy and treasures. I'm proud to be part of this organization.
