If you’re new to how101 (help our world one on one) here’s some information you might want to know.
we are a bridge…responsibly and relationally connecting people to make a difference in one life across the world…because nobody is nobody.
We just returned from our 4th annual Starfish Camp and it was a huge success! Just to give these young mums and children a few days of joy and laughter, mixed with learning and growth, topped off with lots of love and hugs was a privilege for us. 13 ordinary people from Colorado, Oregon & Iowa, plus Youth for Christ Uganda staff, volunteers and cooks…with God’s help, we make a great team!
how101 exists to transform lives through education, support and basic necessities within targeted community groups in Africa. We responsibly and relationally connect people through personal sponsorships, micro-financing and/or tangible self-sustaining projects. Our consistent partnership with indigenous leaders cultivates the best strategy for individual lives and their peer communities.
Our vision is to see transformed lives impact their home communities. We strive to remain relevant and simple as well as to stay fluid with changing situations. We will continue to utilize volunteers and grow with people and projects through extended education, mentoring and companionship.
We are determined to be cross-culturally transparent and honest in our collaborations while serving the impoverished. We believe there is something to be learned from every life, treating each with respect, dignity and humility.
