NEED: Well-educated individuals make their society more productive. Human Service Resources, Inc. (HSRI) provides community education opportunities that give participants a chance to make a difference in their own and other people’s lives. Your contributions will support a variety of philanthropic projects and programs that improve the quality of life for children and youth in literacy and education services in Africa, including Entrepreneurship & Social Development programs.

DONATIONS: We accept cash, educational equipment & supplies, and book donations shipped to at-need schools and community libraries in Africa. We have documentary photos and videos of many of our activities in Africa. Sample photos and snippets are available on this website. We are happy to send our donors full documentary videos in Africa upon request. We are all connected! Please contribute to our ongoing education initiatives to give others a chance to realize their potential.

Here are some of our ongoing humanitarian programs:

Academic learning revolves around building and improving vital life skills. We provide literacy and capacity building support to youth and adult programs. We collaborate with volunteers, community and faith-based organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate programs in the following areas:

• Academic Tutoring
• School Bonding
• Personal Development
• Mentoring
• Career Awareness
• Violence Prevention
• Family Bonding
• Culture & Diversity Awareness
• Personal Health & Wellness
• Adult Job Literacy
• Job Readiness
• Financial Literacy

Books are the fundamental gateway to knowledge, and everyone deserves a good book. We solicit, collect, ship, and donate books and educational resources to schools, libraries, and community learning centers in Africa, in collaboration with our USA partners (e.g. Books4Cause). Please join us to provide this priceless resource to children and youth in Africa. Please make us part of your annual tax-deductible charitable giving now.

We have a dedicated community learning center (CLC) in Tsrukpe, Ghana. Named for the philanthropist, educator, and illustrious native son, the Dr. Evans Fiakpui CLC is a multi-function center for promoting teaching and learning in functional, technological, health, and global literacy. The CLC consists of the following functional sections, with the rooms to be named in honor of significant donors:
• Reference Library - Literacy Resources for Preschool through Tertiary Education, and Leisure
• Technology Room - Exposure and Access to Computers and Basic Technologies
• Children’s Room - Intergenerational Developmental Resources for Preschool through Early Grades
• Quiet Room – Reading, “Meditation,” and “Reflection” for CLC Visitors
• Conference Room - Small Group Meetings, Community Workshops, and Civic Education

The key to a productive society is a well-fed population, particularly children and youth. We have provided meals for over 400 school children each year on January 1 since 2003.
