My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Humanity For Children, Columbia, MO, USA
So many non-profits garner recognition less from their work and more for their panache, so when I was first introduced to Humanity for Children I had expected much of the same. It was quickly apparent to me, however, that that was simply not the case with HFC.
When traveling in Rwanda and Tanzania with HFC's project team in the summer of 2011, I was struck by the organization's approach to their work. Humanity for Children and its directors have built real relationships with the people in the communities in which they are active. They go to a community, observe it, talk to the people who know it and its needs best, and then set out to implement their projects. This means that whether they are raising funds for solar study lights for Rwandan school kids or constructing health facilties in remote areas of Maasailand, HFC is having a profound impact.
I'm so proud to be involved with this organization. It's through the opportunities I have had to work with its volunteers and meet the people whose lives HFC's projects affect that I'm reminded why we all need each other, how we can help one another, and how we challenge each other to be better versions of ourselves. HFC pours such passion and joy into all of their efforts, and I'm excited to see what they do in the future.
