Happy New Year to All!
Let me start by thanking our customers for the overwhelming support we have received for the Angel's Corner
We are very excited because we were able to make our first contributions to two great organizations:
the process of choosing a specific cause and with suggestions from Plan
Canada, we decided to support a cause in Pakistan first, for a few
reasons. First, as mentioned, our factory is located in Pakistan and we
thought it would be great to honor our colleagues by being the first
recipients of this initiative, being an essential element in making the
Angel's Corner possible. Second, this project will directly benefit
children. Third, there is an immense need in that country.
The program is called Birth Registration Program
The goal of this project is to assist children without documentation in
obtaining a Birth Certificate. Most significantly these documents
provide a child with easier access to essential Social Services
such as Education and Healthcare. It provides Proof of Age
, helping protect against child labour and child marriage, as well as proof of National Identity
, making it easier to defend against abuse and child trafficking.
addition, a person can be denied their right to: Vote or stand for
elected office - Obtain a passport - Prove their nationality - Get
Married - Obtain a Drivers License - Inherit money or property, just to
name a few. Pakistan's Population is about 160 million; unfortunately
nearly 64 million children remain unregistered.
The Angel's Corner's first contribution will be able to provide Birth Registration for about 233 children.
"Join Plan in its goal to achieve universal birth registration - a universal responsibility"
Archbishop Desmond Tutu. (Nobel Peace Price-1984)
we started by supporting 3 entrepreneurs in the developing world in
their efforts to achieve economic independence, empowering them to lift
themselves out of poverty, through micro credit.
With your support, we look forward to being able to help more entrepreneurs in making their dreams come true.
behalf of the recipients of your good will, I would like to thank you,
as well as assure you that we will continue to investigate other worthy
projects around the world. This is only the beginning!
