Currently working in the poorest parts of the Country , HRI has several programs including, Women empowerment where hundreds of women have been trained and supported to run small businesses.

We also conduct free medical camps including emergency medical response training to government and local Institutions. We are also in the process of building a girls rescue center to help many girls who wants to free themselves from the bondage of early child marriage and Female Genital Mutilation.

With over 12 years in the humanitarian sector, am passionate about making a lasting change to thousands of poor communities , men and women including children who lack basic opportunities and services that many of us would often take for granted.
I believe we both have an opportunity to make the World a better place. There is no black or white or Yellow or green! We are both humans and therefore we got to support and help our brothers and sisters.
I call upon everyone to contribute to making this world a better place. Join me . join our organization, join our dedicated team and lets start transforming lives...one by one!
