The CHF International 2011 Annual Report is now available. This year, we have chosen as our theme Partnership in a Changing World.

This edition of Building a Better World describes CHF 's program activities around the world during the last year and, as it does so, it describes the many different ways in which CHF manifests its commitment to helping people realize their own aspirations for a better life.
