Friends Unite believes in the
strength of the human spirit. Extreme poverty is a problem in many parts
of the world, often leading to malnutrition, inaccessible health care,
inadequate education, disease and hunger. Despite these conditions, we believe
that people have the desire to help themselves if given an opportunity. We also
believe that such opportunities are most often achieved through the
collaboration with and creativity of others.
The charitable mission of Friends
Unite is to provide the support necessary for people and communities to help
themselves. Friends Unite will provide support for the advancement of
education, health services and other basic necessities, such as food, water and
shelter. We will accomplish this goal by partnering with organizations,
individuals and communities who can change people's lives through innovation,
technology, and expansion of knowledge.
Friends Unite is based on the
premise that the contribution of human capital is just as valuable as, if not
more so, than monetary capital. Human ingenuity, compassion, and
creativity, along with teamwork and an individual’s desire for a better life,
can help solve many of the problems created by extreme poverty and other
challenging life conditions.
The inspiration for Friends Unite
was drawn from our friends and family who have dedicated their lives to helping
others. It also stems from the realization that we cannot achieve everything on
our own. By uniting to create mutually beneficial relationships and harnessing
the collective brain power of an expanding network, together we can make a
positive difference in a community or a person’s life.
