 huenity.org aims to provide a culmination of information, treatment, education, job placement, and/or housing for the homeless in New York City. It is our goal to work towards eradicating homelessness on a global scale; we want to go beyond buying the homeless a cup of coffee or giving them a few bucks, but to really rescuing those who are trapped in the cycle of poverty, homelessness, and violence. 


Our passion to create a positive change led us to question the overall phenomenon of homelessness itself. Why are people homeless; what factors contributed their present condition; and what part can we play in making a long-term difference in their lives?

Therefore with the help of various individuals and organizations, we are able to provide these services free of cost; in order to empower the homeless with the knowledge that they are human and their humanity is something worth treasuring.

Ripe For The Picking - The Play  | Open: 10/01/09 Close: 11/01/09
 
SYNOPSIS
Ripe for the Picking tells the story of a languishing journalist named Gzifa Moyoyo who is called upon from her past to rise and become her own hero. 
After receiving a letter from a distant cousin in Ghana, Gzifa embarks on a journey that brings her to some of the most careworn countries in the world. Fueled by the need to help her tse, Gzifa creates a television series to reach out to the subjugated; and crosses the globe to meet a young girl for sale on Falkland Road in Bombay, a prisoner in a Laogai labor camp in China, and Apedomessi – a young spirit sold to a Trokosi priest in Kome, Ghana at 11 years old. As the interviewed divulge their horrific narratives, using a blend of poetic monologues and dialogue, and music, Gzifa becomes increasingly drawn to them and learns that if we can experience together we cannot fail apart. Consequently, she joins the fight for international equality, renews her vow to rescue her cousin and ends the trokosi (child sex slavery) system in Ghana. 
Nevertheless, the question remains, how far will she go on her quest to explore the depths of human conflict, suffering and the fear of losing her own humanity?
