So many people around the world are creating incredibly worthwhile projects, stemming from that human connection of Compassion. I have such gratitude for the people who are making a sincere difference in the world, creating positive change simply by taking action through the call of their hearts.

There are so many charities and foundations which are important, I am happy to have a listing here.  If you know of a worthwhile charity which would be suitable for this list, let me know and let's see what we can do.


The Farkhunda Trust (Rahela Trust)

Rahela Trust was originally known as The Farkhunda Trust, having been set up by the Trust's founder Rahela, in memory of Farkhunda Malikzada, whose brutal murder on the streets of Kabul in 2015 shocked the world. Its mission is to provide scholarships for Afghan women from disadvantaged backgrounds to enable them to pursue higher education and, ultimately, to contribute to shaping a progressive Afghan society.

Wild Sun Rescue Center

The Wild Sun Rescue Center based in Costa Rica, is dedicated to the conservation and rehabilitation of wildlife. Bringing in injured and orphaned wild animals, they provide them with the appropriate medical care and shelter. Once healed they are released back into their natural habitat, while the severely injured with permanent handicaps remain under their care.

They also collaborate with wildlife breeding centers, reintroducing regionally extinct species back into the area. Reforestation projects are of great importance as well and preserving the biological corridors. "We want to see the health of our beautiful and diverse ecosystem flourish. Our team has come together to see these projects through."

Regeneration Canada

Regeneration Canada is a non-profit organization based in the city of Montreal.  I was genuinely excited when I came across them, as the basis of their project is one I’ve never paid much attention to.  Yet, it is of vital importance.  Their promotion of land management practices for the regeneration of soil health, is their mission toward “mitigating climate change, restoring biodiversity, improving water cycles” which includes an increase in food’s nutritive value.  If you’re anything like me, and know very little about soil, they have opportunities to volunteer.

W.A.G. (Welfare for Animals in Goa)

Welfare for Animals in Goa is a non-profit organization, wholeheartedly committed to the rescue of animals in need.  They have a successful re-homing program for abandoned cats and dogs, a "Stray Cattle" program, and have taken on the enormous task of monitoring the beaches of Goa, in order to reach and feed the countless starving cats and dogs during the monsoon season. Most recently, they have opened a small clinic for neutering, and treatment of ailments for a wide range of animals.
