Facilitating empowerment towards sustainable development:

Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Seen as the guiding principle for long-term global development, sustainable development consists of three pillars: economic development, social development and environmental protection.

It is our belief that empowerment of self is critical to maintain sustainable development.  Knowledge becomes a key factor in empowerment.  Therefore we are trying to focus on some basic tools which could facilitate knowledge which thereby leads to empowerment and sustainable development.  Some of these tools are reuse of used personal computers, reuse of used school books, reuse of used eye glasses.  These tools are provided at no cost to those who otherwise cannot afford or otherwise have access to such.  We try to focus more on youth as they are destined to be the leaders of tomorrow with minds focused on sustainability matters.  We believe a book titled ‘Green my Parents’ written by youth, shows practical ways to be environmentally conscious, not only for youth but for all.  As the world does sustain disasters, we try to mitigate such with fundraising activities that help grass roots level organizations.  It is our goal that such organizations would incorporate micro financed projects at grass roots levels that could lead to successful global enterprises.
