Mission Statement

Bi-Habawalk Inc.´s mission is to facilitate the well-being of disadvantaged young people. We seek to discourage negative behaviors such as substance abuse, teen pregnancy and dropping out of school. BHWalk actively promotes academic excellence, the development of interpersonal and community skills, and individual recognition of personal responsibility. In these ways BHWalk helps the youth form positive self identities.

Description

Bi-Habawalk Inc.'s programs serves at-risk children in disadvantaged communities. Participants are the target population--children ages five and up and several categories of adults, including parents, teachers, counselors, and community leaders. These adults are included because a positive, caring relationship with a parent, teacher, mentor, etc. can help protect ("inoculate") against many risks which can impair the development and severely damage the lives of children.

In addition to our performance-related activities, we provide mentoring programs that provide supplementary education for young people. We also offer foreign language training and programs abroad for adults. A major goal of Bi-Habawalk Inc. is to foster healthy personal development. The aim is to enhance a range of skills, improve self-image and self-esteem, and overall enable participants to realize their potential as productive members of society.

Our programs are intended to reduce the incidence of substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, family violence, and poverty. Our substance abuse initiative, for example, will involve educational materials and events aimed at increasing awareness for individuals and the community at large. Bi-Habawalk Inc. will also provide opportunities for those with differing viewpoints on matters related to community issues to speak and listen to one another in a non-judgmental atmosphere. This process can enhance mutual respect, strengthen ties, and enhance sense of community. Bi-Habawalk Inc. supports and will conduct social research to increase public awareness of factors affecting the lives of target communities.
