How you can donate and help the world
Shared Humanity, USA has two core missions:
The 1st mission of Shared Humanity USA is to respond to the urgent humanitarian needs of people forcibly displaced by war, persecution and violence.
A person trips and falls on the sidewalk in front of you; if you are like most people, you will immediately rush to pick that person up; you will check to see if he or she is injured and if so, you will get them medical attention.
We are in the midst of a massive human migration for which the world was not prepared. Millions have fallen down while traveling the refugee trail.
Shared Humanity USA will always have a portion of its donor funds reserved to lift up people who have fallen or been pushed to the ground.
Since 2016, the founders of Shared Humanity have provided food, medicine, clothing, shelter and transportation to hundreds of people seeking safety. It is because of the wonderful generosity of donors like you that we have been able to extend a hand of friendship to people struggling to continue on their journey to safety.
We have organized volunteer teams that have included medical personnel, skilled construction workers, language interpreters and large doses of compassion, and will continue to do so.
Our 2nd mission is to support refugee communities as they seek to re-establish lives of worth and dignity.
We are excited to be partnering with members of refugee communities to create a Refugee Cooperative and Vocational Training Center in Athens.
Our goal is to equip people with vocational skills that will improve their chances of finding employment in Greece and other European countries.
Established in November 2018, the Cooperative currently offers classes in Greek, English, Sewing, Computers and Music. In the future we hope to offer vocational classes in jewelry design, T-shirt printing and plumbing.
Shared Humanity USA has raised just enough money to cover 6 months of start-up expenses for the Cooperative and its programs. But that's not enough! We need your help in reaching our immediate goal of providing one year of operating expenses for our partners! Each month costs us at least $3,000 for rent, equipment, utilities and certified teachers. Please Join us and make your tax deductible donation below!
On behalf of our refugee partners, we thank you!
