A healthy and prosperous society based on gender equality and equity in every walk of life by improving the lives of the poor through education, economic and social development programs.
We share the vision of a world where all forms of disability can be avoided, healed or integrated and in which the rights of people with disabilities are respected and applied.
We are committed to serving mankind by providing the basic amenities of life to the helpless and needy people of all communities and also by encouraging girls, people with disabilities and youth education.
We believe in gender equality and equity in every walk of life regardless of race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, disability, marital status, veteran status, or any other occupationally irrelevant condition.
We bring together literate and non-literate towns, villages, and people, who share a common respect for each other and for manual work to promote and encourage the development of the spirit of voluntarism among the youth and people of all communities. We do this by organising workcamps towards physical projects, literacy work, and establishing demonstrational camps and farms, leadership training, camping activities and international cultural exchange programmes.
We support and help the destitute, the poor, the needy, and vulnerable children without family support by training and giving skills to equip the youth to be involved in activities leading to the alleviation of poverty in their communities e.g. tie dye batik, bee keeping, snail rearing, establishment of small businesses, general farming, ICT, and provision of information on marketable skill for sustainable life development.
We educate communities and individuals about disaster management, by providing adequate information to members and the general public.
We promote psychosocial counseling for all people living with HIV/AIDS, empower the individual physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially by providing adequate support and above all to give them hope, that all is not lost.
We organise camps for people living with chronic diseases to meet medical professionals for free care, support, advice, checkups and treatment, and also to meet other people living with the same chronic disease.
We help people living in poverty, transition and homelessness rebuild their lives by connecting them to jobs, housing, information and hope.
