Our Global Partners

Form­ing true part­ner­ships implies an inher­ent respect, one for the other. Even as we acknowl­edge the needs of another, we rec­og­nize deep equal­ity of spirit. Poten­tially we all gain in wis­dom … love… and hope … as we come together in coöper­a­tion and unity.

In the ini­tial stages of form­ing part­ner­ship, it is very much about lis­ten­ing to the needs and wis­dom of the local peo­ple and then work­ing with them to address the prob­lems they face. In Jan­u­ary 2008, a small group of vol­un­teers jour­neyed to the Uru region at the base of Mt. Kil­i­man­jaro, Tan­za­nia, to lis­ten, learn and dis­cuss possibilities.

Solu­tions come by way of vision, com­mit­ment, time and gen­eros­ity. While a quick fix is not pos­si­ble, our inter­est in their prob­lems gives the Uru peo­ple energy and hope. After every meet­ing and gath­er­ing, the peo­ple chanted back to us, “It Can Be Done”!

Our cir­cle of friends and part­ners both near and far con­tin­ues to strengthen and grow.

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame
by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thank­ful for those
