“Humanity First has a global program named “Knowledge for Life” Among its global program are building of new schools and vocational training centers, refurbishment of existing facilities, and empowerment of teachers and students to enable more children and youth to attain qualifications and to get themselves out of poverty."
The concept of Humanity First originates from a desire to provide aid on the basis of need alone, irrespective of race, religion, color or political allegiance. The Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad in one of his speeches said, "Humanity First was founded to serve mankind, irrespective of one’s beliefs or background. It was established to provide medical treatment and care to those who are afflicted with ill-health. It was established to protect and shelter orphans, and to help those engulfed in debt. It was established to feed those who are hungry, and to quench their thirst. It was established to provide relief to those who find their worlds turned instantly upside-down, following natural disasters and calamities, or who are living in desperation through no fault of their own."
Humanity First Philippines has been active in helping people in need and also disaster relief programs such as during Typhoon Ondoi, Flood in Cagayan De Oro and also during eruption of Taal volcano.
