Human Development

Restoring Communities and Building a Future are the guiding principles for Humanity First USA. Humanity First works to assist people afflicted by natural disasters, war, and poverty by first providing the needed disaster relief services and then by building capacity of these communities. Our aim is to restore dignity by providing the resources to help people get back on their feet quickly.


We approach our human development projects with sustainability as the overarching goal. Our projects are rooted in a community deeply affected by a natural disaster, war, or poverty. After the relief phase of the project has subsided, Humanity First works with the community to identify viable opportunities for growth and recovery.


Human development programs can be categorized under the categories of: 1) Health & Medical Programs, or 2) Educational & Vocational Programs
