Think Humanity has been assisting refugees since May 2007 and we became an established non-profit in December 2007.
Think Humanity was created to provide relief, support and hope for a promising future to refugees in Africa.
Our mission is threefold:
- Joining in the fight against malaria
- Providing love, comfort and security to orphaned children
- Creating an overall positive change for refugees
In sub-Saharan Africa, a child under the age of 5 dies from malaria every 30 seconds.
Think Humanity helped fund the construction of a school in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement Camp, a livestock project and garden through donations and fund-raising.
Think Humanity also provides rent, utilities, medication and school supplies to teenage girl refugees by renting a hostel 50 miles away from the refugee camp.
Think Humanity has also provided other services in refugee camps such as; distributing birthing kits to expectant mothers, giving shoes to refugee children, helping individual secondary students with their education, mosquito nets distributions and medical treatment at our Health Centre in Hoima, Uganda.
Think Humanity has a clean water project called Maji Ni Uzima (Water is Life) and we are building wells in refugee camps in Uganda.
We are a registered NGO in Uganda. Think Humanity Health Centre has just opened in Hoima District in Uganda where we help with anti-malarials, typhoid, STDs and many other illnesses and diseases.
Your purchase helps us with these projects.
The Acholi women that made our jewelry, purses and baskets are also refugees in the Acholi Quarter Camp in Uganda. They are internally displaced due to war in their country. We support the women of Life in Africa who are working to become self-sustainable to provide for their children.
Refugees are 80 percent women and children and spend an average of 17 years displaced.
