Community is defined as a fellowship with others, as a result of shared attitudes, interests, and goals. This fellowship can transcend physical boundaries, languages, religions, and cultures. Rachel G., a previous Profugo volunteer summed it up well, "My time working in Prasanthagiri as a Profugo Field Fellow has taught me that as members of a global neighborhood, we all have agency in ensuring that others live with the dignity they so deserve, regardless of the physical distance that may lie between us."
Profugo was founded around this idea of collaboration and sharing of resources. Profugo works with volunteers from local universities and organizations, engaging with community members in Wayanad, India, addressing challenges faced in developing communities. This exchange of ideas and resources has led to mutual appreciation between the communities. Each shared experience is a building block in the global neighborhood.
This holiday season, help us continue our mission of fostering a global community! Your financial contribution will allow Profugo to continue our important work in sustainable community development, with programs in youth development, social enterprise development, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, and health & wellness. As Profugo looks to deepen our capabilities in 2019 while also scouting a location for a second Center of Development, we depend on partners like you. Please consider making a commitment to stand as one with Profugo’s global neighborhood. Go Community!
Profugo is a grassroots non-profit organization involved in International Development. Our mission is to provide communities with access to tools and resources that enable them to build a better quality of life. Our vision is creating a world where brighter futures are possible because all communities have equal access to a better quality in life. We work alongside a community to generate social change that is sustainable, cost effective, and long lasting!
