Our Causes

HHS partnered with WaterStep to provide clean water using the M-100 Chlorine Generator to disinfect water, making water safe for entire communities. HHS urges its beneficiaries as well as the community to use the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) policy that was provided to them to avoid continuous and preventable diseases.

Today Women empowerment is a very strong term. It refers to the ability of women to enjoy their rights, freedom and get control over the benefits they deserve. Women should be able to manage their work at their own risk. Women empowerment also states that they should be financially sovereign and have the aptitude to raise their economic status.
The most important investment the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) can make in its future and its citizens is EDUCATION. Did you know that education reduces poverty, increases income, and boosts economic growth? Educating girls has a multiplier effect. Think about it. If we take this seriously and educate girls and women in the DRC, this will increase their chances of having a healthy life, reduce maternal deaths, and fight diseases such as HIV and AIDS, malnutrition, cholera, and other preventive diseases. Embracing education now will not only promote peace and gender equality, but also and more importantly will reduce child marriage.
