What We Do

Food

Sustainable Food Sources

H2H recognized a need for sustainable food sources for African communities. H2H has rented land for gardens, seeds, hand tools and training in agriculture. They were able to grow maize/corn, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes and other vegetables.  We have also purchased protein sources like chickens, goats, quail and lamb to raise and breed for future generations. 

Medical

Providing Medical Supplies

Medical supplies, hygiene products, doctor visits and transportation to the doctor are all very costly in Africa. Many children are born with AIDS or have serious medical problems and are in great need of medicine and doctor visits. H2H welcomes volunteers that are doctors, nurses, dentists or counselors to assist in Africa. H2H also needs donations to help these children get the medical care they need.

Seeds

Growing Crops

H2H has been working in Kenya to grow crops for the community. Seeds are needed every year to grow new crops. H2H holds “Seeds For Africa” fundraisers every year. Please support H2H in sending seeds to Africa. This program provides nutrition, education, and stability to the local community. 

Shelter

Housing For Orphans

H2H supports an orphanage in Kenya, Africa. This orphanage houses 20 children and has 4 outreach children. Money for school fees, clothing and basic needs is needed to support these children. These children can be sponsored monthly with a year commitment as a God Parent. Contact H2H to learn more about these children or go the the donation page to sponsor a child in need.

H2H is also raising funds to create a transition home in Uganda for children ages 3-17 that have been rescued from traumatic situations. Staff and supplies will be needed in the future and funds are needed now to plaster the walls to make this building a functioning transition home. 

Education

Opportunity to Learn

Educating a child, empowers a child. Many children in Africa do not have the opportunity to go to school. Some schools consist of children using sticks to draw letters and numbers in the dirt. Basic school supplies are very appreciated by the children in Africa. H2H is committed to providing basic school supplies and clothing so children can attend school. Donations of items or money to buy them is greatly appreciated. Contact H2H to donate items in needed.

Clean Water Wells

H2H is dedicated to helping African communites create wells that produce clean water. The water sources in Africa are contaminated and sometimes very far away. The cost of a clean water well is about $6,000.00 US dollars which will include a 500 gallon holding tank and all other needed items for the water to be used.

Helping the Children of Batwa

Richard Mwesigwa

This is Richard Mwesigwa From Kabale, Uganda. He is a H2H Inlt partner. He runs a safari in Africa and learned of the Batwa on a gorilla tracking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, home to Gorillas and the previous home to the Batwa. Richard's heart is for the sweet children of the Batwa. His efforts are on empowerment for food, security, income generation, healthy bodies and souls. The Batwa have become his family he has advised them, shared meals and footed some of the medical bills any time they came to him. They have become good friends, we know them they know us. Richard plans to continue to help the Batwa in every way he can and H2H Intl wants to help also. Your generous donations are very appreciated!

The Batwa People

The batwa are an indegenous people of the forest who lived together with the gorillas before conservation in early 90s, these people lived and guarded the forest and gorillas as their home. They harvested honey, tree leaves, fruits and hunted small wild game for food, but the government misunderstood that and cast them out of the forest without any clear resettlement and compassion plan. Today the Batwa are living as squatters on other peoples land. Having had no survival skills in the new environment, the Batwa live an un-certain lifestyle with no housing, land or even basic needs of life meanwhile facing a lot of stigmatization, exploitation and marginalization with many people regarding them as useless subhumans. Their children have no future and do not go to school, this has led to continued increase in poverty levels. The Batwa have the highest child death rates in Uganda. More than half of the children of landless Batwa die before the age of five and are killed by preventable and treatable diseases. Such diseases include malaria, dysentery, diarrhea, HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, Acute Respiratory Infections and Malnutrition, a disease of poverty has claimed most of the Batwa lives. Adults fare only slightly better. Over 70% of the world’s hungry live in underdeveloped countries. Women and children are most negatively impacted. Every ten seconds a child dies of malnutrition, making up 45% of all child deaths under age five in developing countries. Among the Batwa, child survival is minimal and very few make it to age five. The causes of death are preventable. With all this the batwa remain a very happy people with great love for music and live to share their culture with others. You can be a hero and save one or two innocent souls in rural Uganda by donating today.
