help Our world (hOw) Unity & Why Get Involved

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." Albert Einstein

Welcome to hOw!

Over the last few months, we have been very quite -, while building our partnerships, training our partners - while teaching the concept.

Our focus: Teaching project management skills, so we can plan and built our green schools together. "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Albert Einstein

May I introduce one of our partners to you, ...

Partnership Energy Rescue, Nebraska North America
Tonya Ward, I met through one of the over 120+ social network sites we have a presence , today she is my friend - while we follow the same dream.

She started the charity in Nebraska with absolute nothing - only her love to help others gave her the strength to help now others. What an amazing human being. So rare theses days to find. Thank You Tonya! (click here for more info...)

Mission
To take a “community-based approach” to fulfill the mission. Starting with the concept of “for people, by people, with people,” We endeavor to develop self-reliant, Eco-friendly communities and help them rediscover the colours and joys of life whilst strengthening their self-confidence.

To encourage recognition, appreciation and multi-cultural and multi-ethnic dialogue, promote education and on-the-job training and empower each individual by creating opportunities to become actively involved within the hOw community.

About The Project
hOw stands for help Our world and is a humanitarian initiative to uplift the disadvantaged and help them rediscover the colours of life.

It is an effort to raise awareness and involve them in many activity areas, helping them to live in this world with increased self-esteem and confidence.

help Our world (hOw) was inspired by the lack of integration and collaboration that characterizes contemporary charitable work and philanthropic initiatives.

We intend to work as a vehicle that brings as many humanitarian groups together and by joining efforts, make a real difference to more communities and more people who need our help and support.

Why do I believe Getting Involved, will benefit you, us?

1.) Additional Resources

Governments rarely have sufficient means to solve all the problems in an area. Local people can bring additional resources which are often essential if their needs are to be met and dreams fulfilled.

Quote: When people feel they ‘belong’ to a neighborhood which is theirs through their own efforts, then it will become a place which is worth struggling to retain and develop. People will safeguard what they have helped to create. Quote by; Lord Scarman and Tony Gibson, the Guardian, 11 December 1991

2.) Better Decisions

Local people are invariably the best source of knowledge and wisdom about their surroundings. Better decision-making results if this is harnessed.

3.) Building Community

The process of working together and achieving things together creates a sense of community

Quote: Community planning is a vehicle through which we can hope to re-engage people with their community and with society. Quote by; Charmin Marshall, Campaign Director, Urban Villages, 1993

4.) Democratic credibility

Community involvement in planning accords with people’s right to participate in decisions that affect their lives. It is an important part of the trend towards democratization of all aspects of society

5.) Compliance with legislation


Community involvement is often, and increasingly, a statutory requirement.

Quote:
“Design participation is the best education a community can get. The people here have been involved down to the last nail and screw. People round here know more about architecture than anywhere else in the country! It¹s helped us to get what we want and to get it right. “Quote by; Tony McCann, Chair, Eldonian Community-based Housing Association, Liverpool, building homes people want, 1994

06.) More Appropriate Results

Design solutions are more likely to be in tune with what is needed and wanted. Involvement allows proposals to be tested and refined before adoption, resulting in better use of resources.

7) Professional Education

Working closely with local people helps professionals gain a greater insight into the communities they seek to serve. So they work more effectively and produce better results.

8) Easier Fundraiser

Many grant-making organizations prefer, or even require, community involvement to have occurred before handing out financial assistance.

09.) Empowerment

Involvement builds local people's confidence, capabilities, skills and ability to co-operate. This enables them to tackle other challenges, both individually and collectively.

Quote: Experience shows that success depends on communities themselves having the power and taking the responsibility to make things better. A new approach is long overdue. It has to be comprehensive, long-term and founded on what works. “Quote by: Tony Blair, Prime Minister, bringing Britain Together; a national strategy for Neighborhood Renewal, 1998

10.) Satisfying Public Demand

People want to be involved in shaping their environment and mostly seem to enjoy it.

11.) Responsive Environment

The environment can more easily be constantly tuned and refined to cater for peoples changing requirements.

12.) Sustainability


People feel more attached to an environment they have helped create. They will therefore manage and maintain it better, reducing the likelihood of vandalism, neglect and subsequent need for costly replacement

Quote: The strongest bond of human sympathy outside the family relation should be one uniting working people of all nations and tongues and kindred.

More about me
Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together. --Johann Wolfgang von Goethe---

"Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character." Albert Einstein

Vision
There are three main concepts which guide our work and shape our mission:
• Self-empowerment
• Self-reliance
• Environment awareness

We believe that more disadvantaged people in the world could benefit from the support and expertise of humanitarian groups if they decided to work together and if they agreed that promoting these three concepts is the way forward.

On this basis we plan to establish 12 communities around the world to constantly remind us that helping people and helping the environment are time-dependent. Furthermore the communities we envisage will be open to the world, thus giving an opportunity for the exchange of culture and information as well as giving a chance to those who need our help to be eventually reintegrated into the society. For this reason each community will have 12 interconnected and interdependent centres. Some of the centres will generate money (hOw Farm, hOw Atelier, hOw Market, hOw Gastro, hOw Travel and hOw Bank) some will enhance knowledge (hOw School, hOw News and hOw Events) and some will offer support when needed (hOw Office, hOw Health and hOw Unity).
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
Yes

Love is always present, in the world, in nature, in us. What changes is our realisation of it.
Sending you a hearty smile from nature, dear friend.
love without end, Sandavala
