It is no secret that a great economic comeback requires grand ideas. Recovery from grand-scale destruction requires comprehensive and all-inclusive interventions. The HAQI Foundation serves as a platform for catalyzing the evidence-driven recovery and better rebuilding of Tigray.HAQI, as a word, means truth. The word came first, and we tried to give every letter a word to also make HAQI an acronym. The acronym ended up being Humanity, Agility, Quality, and Integrity.
Established by a team of concerned individuals, HAQI believes in the synergistic effect of ideas coming together to generate the strategies, frameworks, and interventions that will make recovery possible. All good-meaning individuals are welcome to join HAQI for rehabilitation by sharing their ideas, ambitions, and dreams for Tigray. Good recovery begins with well-vetted ideas that are clear, relevant, and customized. We are inviting others to collaborate with us.

Mental Health Training
The Tigray war has left deep scars on
the hearts and minds of countless people. The trauma and emotional distress
resulting from the conflict demand urgent attention. Recognizing the critical
importance of addressing mental health in post-war recovery, HAQI Foundation
has taken the initiative to establish a specialized program to address these
Trainings provided by HAQI's mental health experts
1. Daughters of charity's Volunteers (10 in number) 5 days training on PFA and Psychosocial support
2. Ministry of Revenue (360 trainees) 2 days on 2 session Psychological healing and Trauma Informed care
3. Customs around 216 in number. 2 days on 2 sessions.
We anticipate that HAQI will have countless initiatives and a range of activities , but for the initial stages of HAQI, the following are the key priorities that we are focusing on.
1. Care for caregivers
(ሓልዮት ን ሰብ ሞያ ጥዕናን መምህራንን )
“To care for those who care for others is one of the highest honors!” —Tia Walker, author
The Care for Caregivers project is an initiative that aims to identify the extent and severity of the impact of the war—including mental and physical trauma, as well as service disruptions experienced by healthcare and education professionals during the war—in order to design various programs and interventions to support their recovery process. We intend to design programs that improve their own well-being and their capacity to manage patients, students, and others who are affected by the war .
2. Road to Recovery
“Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from others.” — Otto von Bismarck
A solid basis for policy discourse and for developing a social and economic recovery framework for Tigray can be developed from other countries with similar settings that passed through the destructive path of war and had a successful economic recovery. This project focuses on identifying strategies and programs used in post-conflict settings as a basis for experiences, lessons, and benchmarking.
3. Segar scholarship advisory and capacity building
“Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime.” —LaoziThe purpose of this activity is to provide advisory services and capacity building that can be used to open career-advancing short-term and long-term scholarship opportunities by mobilizing resources and creating linkages for short-term and long-term trainings to improve human capital, facilitating exposure to the modern world, and positively impact the youth’s lives.
