Knowledge for Life

Children are the future of humanity; and we shape our future. Humanity First supports underprivileged children to improve their academic performance by sponsoring their educational needs.

Internationally, we support schools with provision of school supplies, furniture and building of school facilities in underprivileged communities.

Locally, we sponsor students and schools facing formidable challenges in their academic growth due to budget cuts, lack of desired resources, necessities, or any other circumstances. Moreover, our Scholarship Program awards scholarships to deserving, yet bright students in Canada.

Learn a Skill

In an effort to alleviate poverty, Humanity First offers vocational training of basic computer and sewing skills through several vocational training centers in African countries such as in Nigeria, Niger, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone, Benin, Ghana and Gambia. The training provided opens avenues for people to become self-sufficient either by running their own business or by getting employment for better future.

Schools in Haiti

Humanity First believes that it is important to work towards providing education to all children around the globe, irrespective of their economic situation.

To this purpose, we are continuing our global mission of “Knowledge for Life”, this time in Haiti. We are preparing to build a school in Haiti, where many children are deprived of education due to poverty, poor health, and a lack of resources.

Investing in the education of children is investing in the future of not only families, but of nations. Together, we can provide opportunities that will allow children to gain literacy and work towards the socio-economic improvement of their communities.
