The “system” illusion

The “system” illusion

“This is a cause for which I am willing to die for, but not to kill for” Mahatma Ghandi

It was one of the most perfected systems the world has ever seen: calculated, pre-meditated and even justified by the national church: apartheid!

The name alone is enough to give chills to countless people and it produced so much hatred, the world is still trying to figure out how to tackle it.

Apartheid:  separation on the basis of race, or what South Africa endured  since 1948.  The “creed” that the white man is superior to the black man, and therefore the need to do things separate: live in separate neighborhoods, worship in separate churches, eat in different restaurants, ride in the back of the bus.  Unless you work for the white man, long, strenous hours, with hardly any pay, to build their great civilization.

The apartheid system gave huge liberty and abundance to its white followers.  They could do whatever they wanted inside this system while the oppressed could do almost nothing.  For almost 50 years, this went on pretty much undisturbed.

Due to the immense sacrifice of Nelson Mandela and the movement he helped create, the abusive system of apartheid crumbled in 1994, with his release from prison.

The apartheid, in spite of being so powerful, brought nothing new to the world: it followed a certain pattern that most systems used before.  Fascism followed the same pattern, communism as well and from them other systems followed suit.  Dictatorships, organized religion and terrorist or neo nazi groups.  All these systems have 2 things in common: tremendous privileges and freedoms for the few and horrible restrictions for the masses.

Utopias such as Communism, Socialism, Religious communes, Arian dreams and other radical entities are nothing but a way to opress people in the name of some ideology.

All these systems have, at some point in history, being destabilized, dethroned or dismantled by movements, which are defined by risings of common people from the ranks of oppressed masses who had enough of corruption, manipulation and exploitation.

Martin Luther dethroned the Papacy in 16th Century through his anti-corruption theses in Worms.  Nelson Mandela destroyed apartheid in South Africa, Ghandi brought the British Empire to its knees, Martin Luther King Jr. brought segregation to an end.  All through movements, peaceful at their core, calm but steadfast and clear.

Jesus himself started a movement, one that threw the established system of the time out of balance and changed the world, even though humans managed to screw even this one up, by establishing organized religion and controlling the whole world.

Our Vision

Providing a platform for people who long to leave a durable legacy of good behind them.  A legacy of real results, with no strings attached, no hidden agenda and no search for self-gratification or vain glory. What we say we do, we are doing and we provide long term support for people and communities in real need. 

We have little use for empty words and empty promises. 

We love to under-promise and over-deliver.

Dream! Plan! Act!

A dream can only be successful when you put it into action!

Our Vision

1. To promote, support and develop the well-being of underprivileged, marginalized and remote children of the world, orphans primarily but not necessarily as a general rule.

2. To create the appropriate infrastructure for such projects, like water systems powered by solar technology, irrigation and agricultural systems to feed them, school buildings, sports facilities, skill development facilities, education sponsorship, medical help and humanitarian support.

3. To bring true care, true love and true commitment to these children by encouraging the local communities to get involved in raising these children in the local culture, language and circumstances, so they grow up to be confident and happy members of their own society.

4. To educate the adult community in protecting the children from abuse, exploitation and neglect, by implementing stimulating programs in the community to foster their well being as a whole.

5. To teach these children and youth the definition of the only true religion: “The purest religion is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” James 1:27. No other definition will be accepted in connection with our work with the orphans. This will keep all the other religious agendas at bay and the children will be given a fair opportunity to choose their destiny.
