About the Humanitarian Project

THP Uganda Nwoya
The Humanitarian Project is about contributing to a greater purpose by helping humanity. This is done through projects that save lives, help others, relieve suffering, and preserve human dignity.

Author Robert Byrne is known for the quote, "The purpose of life is a life of purpose." While we must all determine our own purpose, we can achieve a deeper connection to our sense of being and reach an heightened state of happiness by helping other people.

The Humanitarian Project is the collective result of the years of volunteerism, philanthropy, and charitable efforts of Dennis-Michael Broussard, an entrepreneur, world traveler, volunteer, and  aspiring good Samaritan.


We invite you to explore your potential to help make the world a better place.
