Welcome to Project Humanity
We are empowering women in Africa! Our mission is to work with local leaders in Africa to identify and develop sustainable projects that emphasize women’s empowerment with a focus on health care, literacy, and micro-financing through international volunteerism.
Come join us in Kenya, Zambia or Zanzibar. On Rusinga Island in southwest Kenya you can work with us to help moms and babies through our Purple Slip Campaign and the delivery of Prenatal Care Packs which promotes prenatal care and teaches HIV/AIDS prevention. You can assist women to become more independent by providing skills training as part of our microfinance initiative, and you can help to advance literacy for women in an area where only 2% of girls graduate from high school. Your desire to help others, and a willingness to experience travel and new cultures, are the only critical skills you need to become an international volunteer by traveling with us to Africa.
Project Humanity volunteers come from all walks of life, faiths and backgrounds to include students, nurses and medical professionals, flight attendants, business people, moms and dads, people of faith, first responders, and those who just want to give to assist others.
We are a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). Project Humanity is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Key West, Flordia (EIN#: 20-1412543). Consistent with our mission, and we raise funds and lead volunteer teams to work collaboratively with local leaders on specific projects in Kenya and Zambia. We are a member of the NGO Global Directory OnGood.
