WHO WE ARE
We Connect is a social platform on the Web, but it aims not to be just another that is lost on it. It is a reflection of the world around us, beginning from the microcosm where we belong, which is always humble in the beginning. We Connect represents our non-governmental organization that is plain, simple, and down to earth.
We are a team of socially motivated people from different walks of life, engaged to bring about some improvement and betterment in the lives of others that surround us – other people we have all known, seen and heard of, but not cared to think about or feel, much less do something for. We, therefore, connect to do just that. We all connect and strive to help the poor, underprivileged, downtrodden, deprived, unhappy, lonely, distressed, and suffering. But as in the beginning, ours is just a humble nest with no frills or pretensions.
We Connect envisages a fair and equitable society based on the primary principles of universal justice, wealth distribution, and human cultural existence. It hopes to continue offering non-profit services to society in the essential areas of nutrition, education, clothing, housing, health and medication, social security and justice.
We Connect will initiate every idea and action thus necessary to reach this goal by fulfilling the human and social needs it concerns itself with in a transparent and integral way. It shall take efforts to extend all help and support at its disposal, by whatever means and in true spirit, to bring about a real, positive, and ethical change.
We have drawn persons of all hues and colours in our midst and, in this diverse and unqualified array of do-gooders, there is room for more like-minded men and women, boys and girls, students, entrepreneurs and the employed… no holds barred. Anyone with a will to give his or her mite for the greater benefit of mankind is welcome with open arms. We think that if we will, we can; and if we can, we connect; and when we connect, we contribute together to make our will take shape.
