Our hearts are heavy.
Currently, we are intently focused on educating ourselves, our loved ones and our community on systemic racism, racial injustice, the history of racism and its continuation today. Recently, we have shared some resources across our social media platforms on anti-racism that we hope you will study and share.
We will continue to read and to educate ourselves and our children. It is imperative for our future generations that we pursue anti-racist actions, remain good listeners, and continue to have these conversations, no matter how uncomfortable they might make us feel.
If our organization is to continue in our mission to create advocates for diversity and inclusion in a global community, we must also continue to hold one another accountable, remain diligent and stand steadfastly in solidarity with the black community. Black Lives Matter.
During this pandemic, we have put our travel operations on pause to do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19. We shifted our focus to explore creative solutions to continue to promote positive change. We must also do our part to concentrate on finding ways to show support and fundraise for the Black Lives Matter movement.
We are exploring future fundraising projects in this pursuit, which we will share in the coming days. As a small team comprised solely of volunteers, we would love your help in this effort. If you would like to volunteer at A for H, please contact us at email@example.com. In the links below, there are several BLM resources and a list of organizations that we have been compiling. We hope you will read these articles and share.

Aviation for Humanity reached children on the island nation of Fiji thanks to our wonderful volunteers. Fiji, an Oceania country in the South Pacific, is an archipelago of more than 300 islands. Aviation for Humanity’s volunteer and traveler, John Ambecrombie, visited a school in Nadi. With the help of local volunteers, he was able to secure school supplies for fifty kids in the village school.
The organization annually serves an average of 300 students and their families. Since the foundation has been created, they have served 1,592 young people, 1,238 of whom have graduated. The school has a 97% rate of retention and is a vital piece of their community.
Aviation for Humanity was honored to support the Neustra Escuela. We thank them for providing us the opportunity to expand our global community and support youth education!
Aviation for Humanity ambassador, Paddy Shivanand, visited an orphanage in Moshi, Tanzania. Through the community of aviation, Aviation for Humanity was able to connect her with Mama Faraji, the founder of Tuleeni Orphan’s home. Paddy shares her experience here:
“Mama Faraji is a woman you cannot miss in a crowd. She will envelope you in her warm smile and happy hug as soon as you step into the Tuleeni Orphan’s home in Moshi, Tanzania. I had the privilege of visiting the children and young adults at Tuleeni Orphan’s Home in November 2018, thanks to the arrangements by Aviation for Humanity.
