Heeno International

HI is a privately funded Gambian Non-Governmental and Non-Profit Foundation registered in January 2011, which provides small grants that can make big differences in people's lives. HI does not solicit funds, but would welcome voluntary contributions from persons or organizations who share its vision and objectives. So far HI's financial resources and its grants program have come from the consulting services and investments of its Chairman. The grants are channeled directly to the beneficiaries or the institutions catering for them.

You can support our work

Although HI does not solicit funds, it is interested in hearing from those with good advice or ideas about:

  1. HI's work;
  2. global peace and understanding;
  3. environmental conservation and agriculture; and
  4. how to help the poor/needy through their services, for periods ranging from one week to a year.

In particular, we are interested in medical professionals (doctors and nurses), engineers, and technicians who would like to spend some time in West African villages and towns, providing medical attention, training in technical areas (eg. Solar power, basic skills for the unemployed youth), marketing (especially for women's vegetable cooperatives), agriculture and micro finance management. Although no remuneration is provided for these services, HI can provide free modest accommodation and host families for the volunteers. Interested persons should write to our contact address on this website.
