Encounter Humanity


Welcome to Encounter Humanity. I am Jennifer Roe, Director of Encounter Humanity. As a child I loved reading through the pages of National Geographic. I was enthralled by the landscape, the animals, and especially the people from other countries. After working in the non-profit world for several years I began to realize I wanted to help impoverished people, especially those suffering from the HIV/AIDS pandemic, particularly in Africa.

In March 2007 on a life-changing trip to Lesotho, Africa I met the people of Lesotho and they became my friends. I want to help feed and care for my friends.  So I started Encounter Humanity an anti-poverty project of the  non-profit organization Encounter. We partner with other grass roots organizations to help meet needs in Africa and locally (those in need are not confined only to Africa).

We work to raise money and awareness. The wonderful thing is that a few dollars really can make a difference in someone's life. The difficult thing is there are hundreds of thousands of someones in need of help.

Thanks for taking a few moments to check us out. If you are interested in more information please check out our blog (coming soon) and links. We are always building and adding, so check back often. You can always contact me at jennifer@setheartsfree.com.
