FHISL is a non-profit charity organization. In FHISL, the final fruit of our work is a sustainable, healthy community that can keep growing itself. We call this "Vision of Community" (VOC.) It must be the community's dream, not ours.
WHAT WE DO:
Focus on the root causes of poverty, especially mindset, not just lack of resources.
Starting with small projects that build community confidence, not big projects that can cause dependence.
Starting with leader training so that everything is owned by the community.
Using a community-led process, not outsider-led. Followup to encourage communities.
When you hear of an emergency in the world, FHISL is probably already there.
This includes tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, and civil conflict. FHISL brings lifesaving food, medical care, supplies, and especially, hope to save lives.
FHISL members aim to create self-sustaining communities. We do this through initiatives such as agriculture, child sponsorship, education, health, micro-finance, leadership development, and water according to the community's desires and needs.
