In October 2018, our founder Akshay Nanavati traveled to Liberia as a part of a global delegation filming a documentary reality TV series. While there, he ran 167 miles across the entire country from the Guinea, Liberia border to the capital city of Monrovia to help bring clean water to those that need it, raise awareness for notable projects on the ground and build the 1st sustainable vocational training school in postwar Liberia.
Uplifting humanity, one step at a time
DEFINE OUR MISSION TO HELP THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES, MEANS, OR ABILITIES TO TRANSCEND THEIR OWN SUFFERING.
In the hours and days they spent together, Jacobs told Akshay about his 5 year old son Joe and the hole he had in his heart. Jacobs and his family didn’t have the means, resources or facilities to get Joe the surgery he needed in Liberia, so they just had to live with it. Every day they wondered if that was the day when Joe’s heart would fail on him.
The largest red light district in Asia is in Mumbai, India. Over 5 thousands sex workers, most of whom are believed to be victims of sex trafficking, live in this area known as Kamathipura. A countless number of children are born into this life, and many others are forced into it from various parts of India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
One small organization took it upon itself to support the young girls who were born and raised in this area by providing them the means to become agents of change in their communities, and the world.
The horrors of war leave their mark even on the strongest of men. To force young children into the brutality of armed conflict is an act of barbarism that represents one of the worst human rights atrocities on our planet.
