Description

the Foundation aims to provide fundraising and resources to non-profit organizations and special projects that work to remove the barriers facing youth aged 10 to 20 that could prevent them from developing the kind of caring, resilient depth of character and integrity needed to positively impact their families and communities, both locally and globally for example opportunities to experience success and build self esteem and sociability. The Foundation does not limit its target youth to those with low socio-economic status who are living in poverty, but takes a holistic view that also includes youth who may be misguided or are missing key opportunities to use the financial and social resources available to them to reach their potential and positively impact their families and communities.  Some of the factors include childhood traumas, including physical/sexual abuse, parental alcoholism or drug addiction, family violence, low socio-economic status, living in poverty to name a few.
