Working today to change tomorrow!
More and more, our world's peoples are coming closer and closer together in both community and understanding. Our relationships with one another are highlighted more by our common purposes and our equal exposure to threats, natural or manufactured.
As we mourn losses due to earthquakes and our persistent, near annual floods, we reflect on our Global Warming, famine and pandemics as dissociated events.
It is said that there are no really new ideas, merely permutations of old. This saying owes its origins in the cyclical nature of life and our seasons, and although there is no shortage of goodwill among the world’s peoples, many of us are markedly absent from the theater of goodwill and philanthropy. Given the ubiquitous scale of natural disasters, all the world’s peoples must be encouraged and strengthened to contribute to the alleviation of suffering, little be it or much. This hope in cumulative infinitesimal worth is the guiding light for The GDP.
Democracy, like all other lifestyles, cannot be forcibly imposed or coerced on a peoples, nor can it be banished from consideration by the same peoples. In Democracy lies a conducive environment and enormous opportunities for dynamism and more comprehensive relief. The rights and under-utilized capacities of the poor and physically or mentally disadvantaged persons have long been recognized by champions of democracy as its Achilles discount and we are missing out on the immense and untapped potential of the human family. Just imagine when all our potentialities are brought to bear on a disaster, we would likely be more worried about a tsunami of goodwill than mounting casualty from the disaster proper.
It is in this hope and recognition that the idea for FONDINGIA will yield compound dividends.
Whether you are, or know someone who is infirm of sight, you can be an invaluable addition to FONDINGIA and to the Sevink Vision Institute. I encourage you to join hands with us for attenuated good.
Most natural disasters are predictable to a great extent and we are afforded a modicum of forewarning. We are aware that the human population itself is growing at an alarming rate, having already doubled. The combination portends ominous yield because of the link between human activity, population growth, and fuel for disaster. We speak more in terms of billions now as opposed to thousands when we describe disaster loss. We at The GDP, recognize the value of capacity building to prevent or ameliorate the scale of loss and suffering, and I am confident you will help grow BOSUDI and KAATEC.
Whether you are a recent high-school or college graduate, I encourage you to choose an area where you wish to grow with us. I promise an enriching and satisfying experience.
