One Parent

Single-parent households and orphans face unique challenges which often go unnoticed. To address this void, Humaniti is dedicated to providing comprehensive support through our One Parent Program.


Our Mission


Single parents are under immense pressure with all household and financial responsibilities on their shoulders, and 84% of them are women. Statistics show that children from single-parent households are more prone to developing psychiatric illnesses and substance abuse, and they are less likely to pursue education.


This program provides critical support globally through food for mothers and their children, education for orphans, shelter for mothers and children fleeing domestic violence or seeking asylum, and more. Locally in Canada, we work with individual case studies to address each family’s unique concerns.


Humaniti is bringing support and opportunity to these disadvantaged households so that single parents and their children have access to basic necessities and are set up for success.
