A Ray of Hope, UNESCO Youth Ambassador for the Culture of Peace
A Ray of Hope is not a charity and we try as far as possible never to assist in currency form, but rather prefer to investigate what people, especially children, need throughout the world and to deliver that item directly into their hands. This avoids many of the pitfalls that exist in the world of giving. We believe that diversity of culture is enrichment and actively look for and promote friendships ..... if we can assist our friends we do.We have little difficulty in obtaining certain educational supplies and to date have distributed over $9 million worth. Some of the smaller items, although easily purchased, we feel it is to the benefit of everyone that those who wish can assist us and in doing so know that they have helped directly. No member of A Ray of Hope receives financial gain of any kind but the true satisfaction of knowing that, at very least, we are attempting to make a difference.
To promote the ideals of the United Nations and UNESCO. To profess the belief in the international development of a culture of peace.To allow the coming together to be as an example.To assist others in their search for an undivided world.To use productions and publications to be a medium to carry aspirations.To support those in need. To assist others by using the world wide web.To organize international art and music festivals / competitions promoting the talents of everyone, everywhere.
