La Petite Écolière is proud to support Think Humanity as one of our charity partners.
Think Humanity began assisting refugees with bed nets in the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement Camp in May 2007 and Think Humanity became a registered nonprofit organization in December 2007. Their primary focuses are healthcare, education, clean water and socio-economic development.
Check out our Role Models interview of Beth and Aimee Heckel, the mother-daughter duo who started this organization.
Think Humanity is small organization with massive impact:
- They have educated more than 180 children and had our first university graduate this year. Secondary school graduates have found employment as teachers, interpreters, a journalist, a chef, office administrators and shop workers.
- They have constructed approximately 70 wells.
- They have distributed more than 95,000 mosquito nets.
- Think Humanity has a clinic just outside a refugee camp where we treat women and children. They freely give birthing kits and ultrasounds and have Women Health Days. In 2018 they treated 9,200 patients.
- This year they purchased a plot of land to build our own girls’ hostel where they will eventually have the Think Humanity Secondary School.
