Who we are
Dedicated change makers
Humanity Helping Sudan project is a nonprofit with the mission to provide Sudanese refugees with the tools and knowledge to achieve self-sufficiency.
Founded in Richmond, VA by Manyang Reath Kher, who lived in refugee camps along the Sudanese and Ethiopian border, where homelessness, hunger, fear, and abuse were part of everyday life. He longed for his mother and father, faced starvation, sickness, and horrifying injuries, but never gave up and hoped for a better life. With that hope in mind came about the beginning of HHSP.
HHSP has won numerous awards for it’s dedication to improving the lives of Sudanese refugees.
What we do
Make change happen
In the past, The Humanity Helping Sudan Project has offered vocational programs, a solution that encompasses all ages and facets of life.
We have also raised funds to fix wells allowing access to clean water, for fishing equipment, for poultry farming, for tools, and for the farming of fruits, vegetables, and grain to upkeep the community garden. These efforts will have lasting effects on the community, because the people can continue to progress on their own.
From 2017, we are focusing more on vocational training, traditional education and trade, to give refugees more than the ability to feed themselves, but instead the option to imagine with ambition and to manage their communities free of outside aid.
