Established in 1996, we have quite the story to tell. There's no way we could go into all the details without writing a book, so here's our best shot at keeping it brief and still informative.
Mission & Vision
The Mission Statement lets you know what we do. The Vision Statement tells you who it is we hope to be. The meaning of the statements are best discovered when you're a part of the action.
Because this site has A LOT in it, we've taken a page to "simply" list what we do as a "Community Service Organization," a "3rd World Development Agency," and an "Educational Institution." Take a look!
