A certain altruistic philosophy dictates that those who are thrust into a position to make change have a fundamental obligation to do so. This idea's basis lies in a deeper more ontological school of thought that surpasses the realm of the purpose of this paragraph. But we, being positioned in a society of success and plenty, must consider the poor, suffering, and illiterate that exist within our world. From a secular, strictly philosophical perspective, this begs the question, "Why do they suffer?" What force pegged some humans in a position of suffering, trials, and hardship? What force granted opportunity to others? These questions could be responded with a religious answer. But this is irrelevant to the grim reality that there are people who carry through hell-on-earth, while others live the most lavish lifestyles, pushing the boundaries of opulence and grandeur.
The Bishop's School, my current high school, along with the group Project Concern International have undertaken multiple projects under the aforementioned philosophy. Project Concern International (PCI) is a non-profit organization that has major projects in regions afflicted by disease, poverty, overcrowding and illiteracy, namely India, Horn of Africa, Sub-saharan Africa, and the Caribbean. This message concerns our involvement with PCI in India.
Now after working with Project Concern through my school, I have undertaken another project; an ongoing fundraising project to supplement Project Concern's work in India with additional funds, so that its wonderful projects may continue and grow. Feel free to contact me about my work, or if you are interested in helping with this fundraising project.
