Humani is a nonprofit organization that is developing a self-sustaining community in Ethiopia. Young mothers suffering from HIV/AIDS and their children will be given medical assistance, professional training, and employment opportunities in a safe environment. A school is being incorporated into the master plan, giving the young mothers access to an education that will allow them to develop marketable skills.
The organization is currently negotiating with the Ethiopian government for the 300 acres of land that will be necessary to build the compound. The plan includes small groups of buildings that will house the numerous functions within a fenced master compound. On-site utilities will be designed for conservation, with the goal of developing a net-zero community.
