WISHOF Foundation The mission of WISHOF.org is to kindle the spirit of social awareness among children.
How can I help? Volunteers can enroll their children as Students, offer to Coach or Mentor as well as donate to WISHOF Foundation. Please Email us at [email protected] or call us at 732-707-1490 if you are interested in enrolling a Student or becoming a Coach or Mentor, or have a question. How will my donation be spent? WISHOF Foundation will spend the funds to sponsor and new initiatives. A portion of the funds will be spent on creating a robust operational platform that will enable academic institutions and other organizations to adopt this model and unleash the hidden potential of more children within. Five-year vision: An operational model functioning smoothly on an automated platform is expected to improve the reach and permit scalability. Once adopted within an institution, Students, Coaches, Mentors and Sponsors will be able to collaborate seamlessly across the world while making a tangible positive impact.

Still mourning and trying to survive in Tacloban

The biggest storm ever recorded to make landfall tore apart families, took mothers from their children, children from their parents, and in minutes swept away what had taken a lifetime to build.

It hit the poorest and the most vulnerable hardest.

My daughter the gorilla

Park ranger Andre Bauma has been taking care of orphaned mountain gorillas at Virunga, Africa's oldest national park, for the past seven years, and he says he loves them as if they were his own children.

The are less than 900 gorillas left in the world and that number still fast diminishing, slowed down only by the courageous work of a few humans like Bauma.

Imagine that their global population was possibly in the 7 or 8 digits not too long ago and has been reduced to triple digits with the forthcoming decline to double digits, singe digits and possibly none unless we do something very soon. What a shame and what a loss for mankind if we permitted this to happen. This is a wake up call for everyone who cares.

The rich bounty of nature and the greed, excesses and human abuse are well contrasted in this exceptional photo-essay. Unfortunately poverty is the reason for these excesses per the article.

The law says no human activity of any kind is allowed inside the park - located in the Democratic Republic of Congo - and the rangers are there to prevent it. It's a dangerous job - since 1996, more than 130 rangers have been killed. "We are constantly threatened, not only by the militias inside the park but also in general by the population," says Bauma. "There is a lot of poverty, so people try to survive. They will try to use the natural resources of the park, whether it be wood to make charcoal, fields for agriculture or illegal fishing."

The heart-rendering and gut-wrenching facts are presented very well in this article... So please take a few minutes understanding these, the overall situation and in building awareness with friends and family.

When poachers at Virunga national park in DR Congo kill mother gorillas, the task of adopting the babies falls to Andre Bauma.

WISHOF Foundation, (www.wishof.org) founded in 2011, is a NJ based 501 (C) (3) Tax Exempt Organization focused on kindling the spirit of social awareness among school children. This is done through a six-step process. WISHOF Foundation is focused on unleashing this fourth dimension among children. Their potential unlocked, children can emerge to become extraordinary leaders.

Sarayu Srinivasan and Avina Rami are both Seniors at Marlboro High School and Biotechnology High School respectively. They enrolled in WISHOF Foundation in the summer of 2013, wanting to discover their interests and align their energy with the immediate needs of the world. A final summary of their efforts over the course of the past year is attached. Rupali Rami coached Avina, Dr. Shridevi Rao coached Sarayu and Kamala Murti, served as their Mentor walking them though this six-step process. Sarayu and Avina worked very hard to understand the state of poverty world-over and the related challenges. When the time came to pick an initiative, based on their research and understanding of the relevant issues, Sarayu and Avina chose to raise funds and financially support Malala Fund.

Being talented Bharatanatyam dancers, they committed to doing a full length program, accompanied by live musicians, who were flown in from India. Details as per attached brochure. A full length dance performance was held at the Colt’s Neck High School on September 28. Sarayu and Avina dedicated this evening to all the children in this world and especially girls who are being denied the right to education. Over 300 guests attended and $1,544 was collected. A check is attached for this amount and an acknowledgement would be appreciated. Please utilize these funds in the areas, as summarized in the attachment titled Malala Fund.

On a future date, the occasion permitting, both Sarayu Srinivasan and Avina Rami have expressed their interest in meeting Malala Yousafzai in person.

India tackles poverty through business

Philanthropy has always been part of society in India. But traditionally, the bulk of this money is given to the poor outside temples and mosques - charity that's motivated by religious beliefs.
But as India's economy grows, mindsets are changing and the business of giving is becoming more than just money.
The India Giving Report, an extensive survey done in 2012 by the Charities Aid Foundation, said that India has the potential to become a global philanthropic powerhouse.
It also found that more than 80% of the population gave at least once a year. The most popular causes supported by Indians were disability, homelessness, care for the elderly and education.

India's charities are seeking help from big businesses to build a marketplace for the impoverished to sell their goods.

Typhoon Haiyan: Images of then and now

Featuring: ENVIRONMENTAL DISHARMONY...

Idiopathic weather patterns have become the order of the day.

Are our lifestyles, the impact on nature and the weather patterns related?

Is it a vicious cycle leading us on a downward spiral?

Decide for yourself by exploring this scrolling panorama of a street in the town of Tacloban, the Philippines, which was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.

Food for thought - Can we break/reverse these patterns?

A normal neighborhood was reduced to smithereens in moments and 7000 lives were lost.

The biggest storm ever recorded to make landfall tore apart families, took mothers from their children, children from their parents, and in minutes swept away what had taken a lifetime to build.

It hit the poorest and the most vulnerable hardest.

These pictures tell very sad story.

Typhoon Haiyan devastated towns and villages across central Philippines a year ago. Images from the time and now show how communities are rebuilding their lives.
