Our Philosophy

  • "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

    Proverb

  • "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it."

    Ben Franklin

    Founding Father of the United States
  • "The greatest level, above which there is no greater, is to support by endowing him with a gift or loan, or entering into a partnership with him, or finding employment for him, in order to strengthen his hand until he need no longer be dependent upon others."
