Our Brief History

Our History relates to the life of our founding member, Janvier Hafasha, a refugee who was only 17 at the time he fled the Democratic Republic of Congo when a militia group invaded his village, brutally murdering his mother in his presence. To-date, Janvier has no idea where the rest of his family members could be now. Having been traumatized to this level, Janvier embarked on a multi-stakeholder approach by closely working with the local leaders and Humanitarian organizations in Kyaka Refugee Settlement to share his experience and seek for solutions to the challenges affecting fellow refugees in the settlement. Janvier got an opportunity to work with Humanity & Inclusion formerly Handicap International as a Community Based Facilitator; its from here that he developed desire to organize fellow refugees particularly those who were more vulnerable hence the birth of Hodari Foundation.
