Aviation for Humanity is a not-for-profit organization that uses the traveling public to bring school supplies to children in under-funded schools, shelters, and orphanages around the world.
The non-profit aims to empower children by supporting their education. We believe that by empowering youth, we help create equality and inclusion in our global community. And, we believe that the volunteers benefit as well. We hope to create advocates for diversity and inclusivity through positive multi-cultural engagements. Simply put, Aviation for Humanity aims to support youth education by employing the network of aviation to create a global community.
Aviation is a global industry. Thus, it takes on a global responsibility. Not all communities enjoy the benefit of aviation, yet their lives are affected by globalization.
Have you ever taken a flight? Seen an airplane? Or, benefited from tourism in any way? If ‘yes’, you are part of the aviation community. From pilots to passengers and anyone in between, you can help bring educational tools to communities lacking the most basic necessities. You can provide notebooks and pencils to school children in rural Cambodia. Or, provide necessities for a village school to operate in the remote regions of Botswana. You can make a difference.
Aviation for Humanity collects both educational resources and monetary donations to deliver basic necessities directly to villages, schools, and students. It is a way for anyone who has ever benefited from aviation to aid those who have not. Did you know that there are more than 34 million out-of-school primary-aged children in Africa? Or that the average literacy rate in the Oceania region has actually declined in the last ten years? There are school children in the world that will never know the luxury of sitting at a desk or owning their own pencils. World literacy affects us all. With your help, Aviation for Humanity can provide resources to help bring about a positive change to remote places worldwide. It is how a global industry takes responsibility for a global issue.
We are all part of the global community!
