100 Humanitarians International began in the summer of 2015 after the founder, Heidi Totten, took her first trip to Kenya, Africa. She started a group on Facebook, and it took off from there.
In less than four years we have taken over 150 people on 11 expeditions.
We have worked with over 50 families in 8 communities. We take groups to Kenya four times each year, in a continued effort to create and support self-reliance in families.
Karibu. This is our story.
After several expeditions trying different projects, 100 Humanitarians International settled on what we like to call “The Core Four”. These four programs include:
Women Initiatives, Youth Education, Mentoring Families, and Training & Cultural Centers.
On each expedition, we include something from each of The Core Four to continue moving forward in the promises we are making to ourselves, our organization, and the communities we work in.
We have a pretty amazing team in both the U.S. and Kenya.
We’re really more like family.
We work hard, play hard, laugh non-stop, and there might be tears.
Okay, there will be tears.
And we ALWAYS love.
Because we focus on collaboration, we create opportunities to contribute small affordable amounts to our projects that, when combined with other contributions, create a ripple effect.

Fueling the heart of 100 Humanitarians are the stories. Stories of joy. Stories of sorrow.
Stories of heartbreak.
Embarrassing stories. Hilarious stories.
Stories of life-changing experiences.
Stories of love. Always love.
