Why We Are Different

Grassroots Organisation


Leadership-building, not service

At Haiyya, we believe each person in the community has the potential to lead. When tapped this can create a more empowered and aware community capable of resolving issues themselves as opposed to being dependent on outside agencies.

Sustainable Change


Interdependent neighbourhood teams

While we believe in the potential of each individual, we invest in collective leadership organized as teams with shared responsibility and accountability.

Create Sustainable Change


Relationships are the currency of our work

we build lasting Relationships with each other and the government, recognizing that by knowing and understanding one another we grow stronger as a citizenry and a democracy.
