Human Practice Foundation is an International NGO, founded by former corporate lawyer, Pernille Kruse Madsen in 2014 in Denmark. After witnessing the devastating fates of girls being trafficked from Nepal to India to work in brothels, Pernille decided to commit her life to providing access to free quality education and decent jobs. Today, Human Practice Foundation has registered charities in Denmark, UK, Switzerland and Sweden as well as independent INGOs in both Nepal and Kenya, which employ more than 40 people.
Human Practice Foundation was founded on a few key principles, which today are the backbone of the organization.
At Human Practice Foundation we believe that donors and beneficiaries alike deserve total clarity and transparency about their donations. Therefore, we allocate project donations directly to those in need with zero leakage through the support of a group of Founding Partners, who pay all the foundation’s administration costs.
We believe that change starts where help is needed, which is why we work with our own implementing organizations on the ground in Nepal and Kenya, so our projects can be implemented with full agility and so our programs can be iteratively improved through local co-creation. We help at eye level, and we believe our donors should have the same opportunity.
We never initiate a project by asking ourselves how much it can be scaled, but rather how deep we can anchor our support. Therefore, our work does not stop until we have given children the best conditions to create a better future for themselves and our schools have become top-performing public schools with thriving students. At Human Practice Foundation we believe that schools create life. That’s why we create schools.
No matter where they come from – Nepal, Kenya or Denmark – we believe children deserve a school that allows them to grow and that challenges them. To date, we have more than 80 school projects supporting more than 32,000 children, their teachers, headmasters, families, and surrounding rural communities.
