At VIA, we not only want to help people when they’re in need—we want to make sure that going forward they have the means and skills to be self-sufficient. Although we promote the old Chinese proverb “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” we understand many of our communities need support in the midst of their struggles.
By offering assistance and resources to empower the homeless, creating community gardens and many other initiatives we believe we can establish a foundation to strengthen communities by lifting individuals.
Urgent Needs and Disaster Relief
Unfortunately many individuals, families, and communities are not financially prepared for the unexpected. Life is full of its surprises, and regrettably these surprises can be devastating.
We will be dedicating this fund to general needs that will be directed towards the various issues that affects those who have exhausted all resources in addressing the occurrence such as disaster relief, medical expenses, food drives, assistance for low income families, and much more.
The public school system is failing our children. The value of a good education is immeasurable, and we at VIA would like to help students and educators receive the support and tools they need to succeed.
Whether it be for public or private school, homeschool, or college, this campaign focuses on removing financial obstacles for the rising generation of students and their devoted educators. This project will raise funds for supplies for low income students, classrooms, homeschool families, mini-grants for low-income college students, and more.
Sierra Leone Humanitarian Aid
Poverty and hunger are widespread internationally. As many are aware, these unfortunate factors are very much applicable to many countries in Africa. Decades of civil wars, corruption and disease have devastated the continent, with Sierra Leone being of no exception.
We are currently working with a domestic organization in the country, Kids Compassion Charity, and at this time we are offering humanitarian aid to alleviate the burdens they face. We have the end goal of granting many of those struggling with survival the proper resources and needed infrastructure improvements so that they may become self sufficient.
