We live in an amazing world of innovation and achievement yielding incredible progress in medicine, science and technology. In emerging markets such as Brazil, India and China we’re witnessing the growth of tremendous wealth alongside an increasing number of people plunging deeper into poverty, and for those suffering there is little opportunity to access the possibilities of our global economy.
A simple broken bone can mean permanent disfigurement and a basic illness can turn deadly. Many children are not allowed to go to school, and those that can attend struggle to study while focused on the hunger in their bellies.
Extraordinary people and organizations are dedicating their lives to helping those in need. Most are doing their best to move difficult initiatives and programs forward with limited staff and inadequate financial resources to hire top technical and administrative professionals. These conditions make implementation harder and sometimes inefficient, affecting donor confidence and buy-in from communities counting on their help.
At the same time, we have major multinational corporations and small businesses that are driving much of the progress of the world. These companies are filled with people that want the same things as those serving people in need: a safer world, better opportunities and good health for their children.
These business professionals have tremendous talent and skill and often want to help serve a cause greater than themselves, but have trouble discerning which organizations to support, and figuring out how to fit this service into their busy lives.
WHO WE SUPPORT
We start with great organizations (NGOs) with demonstrated results in saving lives, educating children or improving health care. We help understand their needs and then find the right people and companies to assist.
We then work with companies to align their core business strategies around the causes we support as it drives conditions for sustainability.
Giving back builds relationships that are helpful to business development. It’s helping communities understand the true nature of their company’s brand. It gives employees opportunities to make a difference. That’s not philanthropy. That’s good business.
As these communities thrive, they become less vulnerable which is good for the world. Less spread of disease, less violence, more hope.
Get your company involved. Lend your skills. Many need you. We need you.
