SALT LAKE CITY, UT, Nov. 17, 2011 – Family Humanitarian experience (FHe) launched their new website and opened registration for their first expedition to Guatemala at the end of June 2012. This expedition and others like it will give families the opportunity to work hand-in-hand to create sustainable development in countries around the world.
FHe is a unique organization in that it offers service, cultural, social, and spiritual experiences integrated into each expedition. Whether it’s working to help build a hospital or school, teaching a class on business development or public health, or seeing villagers in the medical/dental clinic, families will experience cultural and social exchanges as they work right alongside villagers.
“An expedition with FHe is so rewarding for participants because there are not only building projects going on but also knowledge transfer through workshops and training that local villagers participate in,” said Tyler DeLange, Executive Director of FHe. “Villages are empowered and lives are changed through this education process.”
FHe has partnered with CHOICE Humanitarian, a distinguished non-profit organization based in Salt Lake City, and Singular Humanitarian Experience (SHe), a non-profit organization of singles serving around the world in sustainable humanitarian development, to make these global opportunities possible.
“FHe, SHe, and CHOICE have created a powerful partnership, utilizing village-driven projects under the CHOICE model of development to create memorable journeys for FHe volunteers,” said Wade Alexander, Expeditions Director at CHOICE.
FHe will coordinate all of the workshop details and lead the expedition and CHOICE will facilitate each expedition and handle all volunteer logistics.
Family Humanitarian experience (FHe) is a volunteer-run, 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised primarily, but not exclusively, of LDS families and singles over the age of 40. FHe is dedicated to providing village-driven, sustainable humanitarian service, to unite families around the globe, and to training humanitarian-minded leaders.
