Humanity’s Promise does not wish to trivialize the complexity of the social and economic ills that exist within many east African nations. Several African nations have been caught up in a seemingly endless cycle of civil conflict and war.

Strife, conflict and social unrest always produces poverty, hunger and despair—poverty, hunger and despair always produces strife, conflict and social unrest!

Drawing upon his lifetime of agricultural related experiences and honed skill-sets, John felt driven to roll up his sleeves to help those people facing hunger and poverty. Prayerfully considering the magnitude of the undertaking, he believed that others would ultimately come along side and assist with this important task.

From that modest beginning, Humanity’s Promise Int’l was born.


Humanity’s Promise Int’l (HPI) is a Canadian Charity providing humanitarian services in Eastern Africa. HPI plays no favourites. It is a benevolent non-political charity that seeks to work beyond the boundaries of tribal issues. The founders of HPI are not strangers to the challenges that face most African nations and its citizens. Having spent many years working among the needy in West-Central Kenya, Humanity’s Promise concluded that a radically different approach was needed to address the myriad of needs.

In the opinion of co-founder John Bossuyt, “countless donor dollars are being spent on the symptom of the illness, without adequately seeking the root cause of the problem”.

Our Vision, our Values, our Beliefs!

That – all mankind are created equal in the eyes of GOD.

That – all mankind are equally deserving of respect, education and opportunities in life.

That – extending help to others, whenever and in whatever way possible, is a good thing.

That – all team members and recipients feel valued as full equals, loved and appreciated.

That – all team members give of their time and blessings for those less fortunate.
