Mission: To develop liveable, healthy, and sustainable communities in rural areas through human transformation. Vision : We imagine a world of healthy and empowered communities that sustain, manage, and distribute their resources equitably without harming the ecological biodiversity whilst also ensuring natural resources for current and future generations. Philosophy : We uphold a "One World" Philosophy in which we believe that the world is connected and all people united. We view everyone as equal. Our work is dedicated to rid hatred and discrimination and promote empathy and compassion. Our Karma guides us to work for the welfare of others without any self interest. Most importantly we believe we "need to be the change we wish to see in the world" and inspire others to be active in their communities through our example.
