I'm always motivated to work with I am Heshima due of its strong organization structure, approach to holistic development of children, the instilling of virtues.
 

These children know not where to seek help, hence suffer silently.

My contribution the world is giving children a mental where their mental health issues can be addressed.

My vision: to see children being children, enjoying life as children through provision of psychosocial support.

We are a grassroots organization where our small donations are making a huge difference in a child's life.

Education is essential, without is there not much hope.  I am Heshima = Hope & so much more.

The kids best interests always come first.  I am a true believer in Heshima's philosophy.

The question is not why but rather why not.

When you build it, if it's right, they will come.

Fred & Lex built it; they have come.

I got involved with Heshima in my university years, and now, just about 11 years later, I am still amazed at the accomplishments this grassroots organization & the youth participants have achieved together.

As a board member, I am able to offer insight into child development and social impact

I was privileged to witness I am Heshima rise from nothing but a dream for this world to be better for those who had no access to the education they longed for.

As a health care provider who is committed to life long learning, I truly believe that we grow the most by helping those around us.
