Huduma Project (Livelihood)
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for his whole life. - chinese proverb
Helping people to help themselves
Our goals go beyond promoting one time health and education opportunities for needy families. The aim of the Huduma Project is to provide sustainable food aid and life support to needy people and communities, to create a safe future and safe environment for children. "Huduma" is the swahili word for help or supply.
In order to eliminate poverty, the income from stable work is essential. This is an important tool to break the cycle of poverty for future generations. The goals of the Huduma project are, for example:
- Rather than helping children in needy families, it is sometimes more productive to help parents so that they can help their own children. Huduma Project promotes practical projects that enable the needy to pursue their own career goals. We are adapting them to work together with experienced and successful local expertise that will help them to their stability, etc..
- Promoting early training and experiences for children, so they can have an idea of what life after school looks like. This will help childen to develop and to follow their dreams when they grow up. This is achieved, for example, through early vocational training, visits to various companies and working place,etc.
Help in the right place
Huduma Project enjoys working with local self-help groups as the involved group members aim to educate and support each other. This improves the standard of living in the communities in which they live in. Within these groups are parents and individuals with self-employed jobs, e.g. farmers, tailors, small business owners, etc. We want to help them develop skills that will make them successful in changing their lives for the better.
Cases that we will consider to promote are like creating training centers where unemployed needy people can learn about effective farming, tailoring, carpentry, etc.
Our goal is to help individuals not rely on donations, but to get help for self-reliance.
