In Nepal we construct earthquake resistant school buildings.
On 25 April and 12 May 2015, Nepal suffered a devastating earthquake, killing nearly 9,000 people and injuring nearly 22,000.
Many schools and homes were destroyed. Therefore, Human Act decided to set up projects in the Dolakha district.
Human Act supporting orphanages and schools
Human Act supported establishing an NGO office building in Mashhad. The office was inaugurated in November 2018, attended by local NGOs, civil society leaders and high-net worth individuals.
The purpose of the support was an initial funding of establishing an NGO to support the construction of schools and orphanages in Mashhad.
Human Act initiated the process of establishing a school and an orphanage in Northern Uganda.
The project builds on the legacy of Anna Marie Olet, a local visionary who following the civil war took it upon herself to care for local orphans and neglected children.
In September 2017, Human Act and Connecther decided to collaborate on various of development projects and campaigns. Among others, Human Act has sponsored Connecther's AIL’s Women’s Legal Clinic Project in Herat.
Humanity 4 Palestine
Since 2018 Human Act has supported Humanity 4 Palestine - a group of Palestinians, activists, journalists, and scholars who is on a mission to spread awareness and build a solidarity campaign supporting the Palestinians struggle for freedom, justice and equality.
Coming from our belief that children are the hope for the future we have been supporting organizations bringing much needed medical and social projects for children in Palestine.
The founder of Connecther, Lila Igram, has shown that women and girls in developing countries are powerful and have strong voices. Her accomplishment are admirable, and their was no doubt in our mind that we had to support Connecther's influential work.
Human Act has sponsored Connecther's Girls Impact the World Film Festival 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Helping to keep girls in school in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
We here at Human Act have once again worked together with ConnectHer to form a new partnership with the NGO, Génération Epanouie (Blooming Generation in French). Our work in the DRC supports children's rights to education, providing scholarships and other materials.
Human Act has supported Génération Epanouie through funding targeted to provide scholarships and educational resources for children growing up in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. These resources are hugely beneficial in supporting a strong education for a generation who struggle to access such educational support and opportunities. To date, Human Act has supplied over 70 scholarships for girls in the region, with 50 attending a secondary school education and 20 receiving a primary level education. The scholarship ensures the children receive all the resources and materials they need to succeed and a monitoring service to ensure the children are making positive academic and social progress.
In collaboration with ConnectHER, Human Act has been supporting the ‘Educate a Girl’ scheme in Bangladesh. With schools closed for much of 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown, many girls in the region have consequently missed out on an education. Human Act has also supported ‘Hazera’s Home’ in Bangladesh, a home established to care for the children of sex workers during the pandemic.
In collaboration with ConnectHER, Human Act has supported Educate a Girl. Human Act contributed with educational support for 60 girls through ConnectHER´s Girls Global Education Fund (28 girls in Chattogram, 27 girls in the remote ethnic minority region of Bandaran, and 5 girls in Dhaka). About half of the scholarship recipients are in primary school and half in secondary school. The funding provided by Human Act has ensured that these girls still have access to an education, despite increasing financial difficulties in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic.
Human Act also supports Hazera’s Home in Bangladesh. 18 girls and 28 boys – all children of sex workers – have been safely cared for throughout the pandemic at Hazera’s Home. Children who might otherwise have been on the streets at far greater risk. During school closures in 2020, the girls attended online classes, and Hazera continued to pay the girls’ school fees and for Internet service (school fees must be paid even during shutdown to maintain enrollment and pay of teachers).
