Established in 2012 and first registered as a Community Based Organisation, BHU now operates on a countrywide basis as a fully-fledged NGO.

The organisation majorly supports pupils under Universal Primary Education - UPE to enhance their learning abilities. Further supports women for improved livelihoods and promoting good health and nutrition in homes.

Women focused projects:
• The rural women farm development project: To promote a shift from rudimentary subsistence farming to commercialized farming.

The project brings women in a group for training in livelihood and vocational skills with the aim of alleviating poverty among less privileged women in society. It is intended to bring women on board shaping them into future leaders able to make sound decisions. They are also trained in production techniques, entrepreneurship skills and helped in sourcing for markets. The women meet regularly to discuss issues around them and formulate a way forward.
Child Centered Projects:
• Health and nutrition project: The project raises awareness in the community encouraging pregnant women access maternity services from nearby health centres to help them give birth and raise health babies free from preventable sicknesses and infections. Amaranthus, a highly nutritious green vegetable has been introduced to boost the health of infants and HIV/AIDS infected children and household members. Plan is underway to introduce mushroom growing; a combination of the two would make a highly valued food content for even breast feeding mothers.
