The Organisation seeks partners who will continue to persevere and continue to help people in need.
  • At JHH, they look to support those who will create partnerships with other organizations and local populations to enlarge the circle of involvement and inclusiveness. Effective applicants will show respect for the opinions and ideas of others, and will work to draw them in to the circle of concern.

  • To ensure that their funding makes the most impact, JHH will give preference to organizations with smaller budgets (operating budgets under one million dollars) and projects that would otherwise not be possible without their assistance.
