  • Emergency relief efforts during natural disasters for those left completely destitute and homeless.

  • Reducing Infant Mortality Rate and Maternal Mortality Ratio through appropriate interventions in family planning, health, nutrition, safe water and sanitation.

  • Reducing child malnutrition and incidence of low birth weight for proper early childhood development.

  • Access to education.

  • Exploring social business models that combine vocational training with small business opportunity for the poor.

  • Aiding other vulnerable segments of society (i.e. elderly and handicapped)
