Community Development

 Humana People to People started the program from Community to commercial farmers back in 1998, and by building on the experiences of that program that was implemented in Zimbabwe in 1998-2000 Humana People to People started to organise farmers in Farmers Clubs. Today, the 35 Humana organisations work to increase food security in all of the countries in which we work: Angola, Belize, Brazil, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Guinea-Bissau, India, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. There are areas in these countries that are some of the most affected by poverty and hunger in the world. 

 Microfinance in India:

Microfinance is a powerful tool that enables the poor to pull themselves out of poverty. Microfinance typically covers microcredit, insurance, money transfers and other financial services targeted at poor and low-income clients. Most commonly, it involves providing small loans to those who do not have access to other formal financial institutions. Usually the micro entrepreneurs use the loans to establish or expand small businesses to generate income for the family. They could be street vendors, artisans, seamstresses, small shop and cottage industry owners.

HPP Brazil operates Child Aid community development projects in two areas of the poor northeastern state of Bahia, Cansancao and Quijingue.  Recently, Clyde Fonseca, a former Planet Aid employee went to volunteer at the Child Aid project in Quijingue. 

Child Aid is a comprehensive, grassroots-based approach to creating development ; it works by organizing communities and enabling them to take action where it counts.  Some of the focal points of the program are: family income, education, water & sanitation and agriculture.
