Globally we share by engaging volunteers all over the world in supporting our charitable partners as we carry out our medical, educational and Syrian disaster relief programs that relieve poverty and create the foundation for social change. Only when the crushing burden of poverty is reduced can opportunity flourish in the rural and disaster struck areas we work in. Many of our programs involve small budgets with just a few program recipients. Through our programs lives are changed and societal change happens one person, one family, one community at a time.
We are a mostly volunteer organization that engages volunteers locally and globally with our charitable partners in India and worldwide to alleviate poverty and create opportunity. Our volunteers come from all walks of life. We offer the opportunity for charitably minded people to make a difference, one person at a time, in parts of the world that are often not easily reached.
We have a small part time staff. We currently have one part time staff member to help with our accounting.
Almost all of the donation amounts we are given for our Indian programs are invested in the direct purchase of items like food, clothing and basic housewares, medicine, medical equipment, medical equipment for people with special needs trees, clothing, nursing and grade school scholarships and vocational training. Our worldwide disaster relief programs support Canadian Charitable Organizations as they administer aid in devastated areas. Each of our programs improves the quality of life and opportunities for people, families and communities who live in less advantaged communities of the world.
