Mission

CHF is a non-profit organization dedicated to enabling poor rural communities in developing countries to attain sustainable livelihoods. CHF passion for change, the determination to produce visible results, and the commitment to ensure that every single person who has anything to do with a community has the opportunity to make it a better one.

The sustainable livelihoods approach offers a way of analyzing rural poverty that respects and empowers the local population as architects of their own development. Using this holistic process, CHF involves entire communities in designing and implementing projects, and helps them to collaborate with local organizations and government agencies.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Disaster risk management entails helping communities to reduce the risks associated with natural disaster, helping to support them when disaster strikes, and helping to rebuild in the aftermath. When a disaster destroys the crops of a farmer living in poverty, it can be crushing for him and his family. CHF helps rural communities in developing countries to weather disasters like floods or droughts by making them more resilient.

Preparedness for effective response (HFA 5)

If disaster strikes a country where we are working, CHF may launch an Emergency Humanitarian Response to help alleviate the crisis. This often serves as a foundation for future short-term and long-term development work.

Post Disaster Recovery occurs in the wake of a disaster when CHF helps communities to build back better. This often means supporting people to rebuild their homes and livelihoods when they have been wiped out.
