Founder Imam Saadiq Saafir once said, “The aim of Humanitarian Day (HDAY) is to convert one day into a life’s mission.” Since Y2K, Humanitarian Day’s model of direct service has modeled and trained many organizations, in becoming grassroots direct service agents. Our values are rooted in ethical human development that promotes transformative leadership. ILM’s Coalition to Preserve Human Dignity (CPHD) is a social network that generates resources to serve people with strategic compassion, unconditional love, and self-respect.
Our mission is to “teach life skills to economically underprivileged youth and adults so that social ills are replaced with opportunities for intellectual and economic empowerment.” ILM’s vision consists of 4 points; (1) create an active network of multifaceted talented caregivers that utilize social skills and resources to shelter those who don’t have it, (2) direct people to job training, (3) promote general care for those who require it, and (4) provide additional educational opportunities, so we can divert youth and adults away from the criminal justice system.
HDAY’s service model is a simple strategy. Adaptability is one of its main features, which enables the network to easily implement services anywhere it’s needed. The model is a rewarding methodology for providers to obtain first-hand knowledge on how to best address a community’s needs. Consequently, the ultimate goal is to achieve sustainability through acts of social entrepreneurship and project-development. We consider our solidarity as “People Helping People.” Our greatest investment is with the people we serve, train, and empower that creates key change-makers for uplifting humanity.
