No power is stronger than the inner strength of children who are given a chance to learn

Purpose

We believe that no single power in the world is stronger than the inner strength of children who are given the opportunity to learn.

All children in the world should have access to quality education and decent jobs when they graduate. This is the foundation for sustainable livelihoods and the purpose of Human Practice Foundation.

It is our quest in life to empower the lives of vulnerable children and thereby improve as many communities as possible in selected underserved areas of the world.

Projects

We help young people and their communities find a path out of poverty. We rebuild existing schools and train teachers in remote areas that are otherwise deprived of quality education and based on our insight and close contact with the communities we develop our projects to directly and effectively address local needs and challenges. With entrepreneurial projects, we drive and support young people and their communities in finding a path out of poverty.

Cases

School Project

When Human Practice Foundation first visited Saraswati Hangpang Secondary School in 2017, the school consisted of a few dark and timeworn buildings.

Two years after initiating our work at Saraswati Hangpang, the School was chosen as one of two Model schools in the Taplejung district.

Coffee Project

In the Taplejung district farming is the main occupation, but few farmers manage to make a living from their crops, resulting in migration to the Gulf states where they accept inhumane jobs to provide financially for their families. With Human Practice Foundation’s Coffee Impact Programme farmers can make a profit and take care of their family while staying in Taplejung.

Inner Strength Project

In Denmark many children and teenagers are distressed, lonely and struggle with low self-esteem, leading them feeling socially excluded at their school. Human Practice Foundation has established Project Inner Strength with the aim of strengthening the self-esteem and confidence of students at Danish primary schools, supporting them in having healthy relationships and thriving.

We work in these locations

Nepal

A low educational level in the rural and mountainous areas of Nepal leads to poverty and vulnerability for many children. Human Practice Foundation wishes to change this through creating quality education.

Kenya

Even though Kenya is perceived as a relatively developed African country, the level of inequality is high and most of the education system is in an unacceptable state. Out of the total population, 36% of Kenyans live in absolute poverty.

Denmark

At Danish Schools, many students are not thriving. They feel distressed and lonely. The schools do not necessarily have the capabilities to handle this challenge.

People

We are an International NGO dedicated to education and skill development of children and youth. Human Practice Foundation is established (2014) and managed from Denmark and headed by CEO Pernille Kruse Madsen. Our Board of Directors, chaired by Lars Förberg, oversees the organization.

We would be nothing without the support and energy of a dedicated group of people (Founding Partners) who provide all funding of administration costs in Denmark. This is one of the unique features of Human Practice Foundation: Enabling us to use 100% of donations directly on project-related work.
