It’s easy to mistake Hamomi for an orphanage. We are battling the assumption that orphans must live in orphanages and that one organization must offer only one service. It can be hard for people to remember that Africa that is diverse and complex, as it is often portrayed as one homogenous unit.
Hamomi’s multi-faceted strategy is grounded in an American approach. When it comes to domestic, US issues, we understand complexity and the need for comprehensive care. Some examples: We do not have orphanages in the US, we have foster care. Our soup kitchens also offer needle exchanges, case workers, job skills training and other services that address the complications of hunger and homelessness. We know free education is not enough to battle all the obstacles in difficult neighborhoods.
Hamomi believes the exact same thing. We will serve each child thoroughly, holistically and all the way through the end.
