GPOP was created with the purpose to awaken in all of us the possibility of Peace in our lifetime. It is a symbol that points to a realization that Peace World Wide is possible and that by adopting simple principles into our lives we can achieve peace on earth.
The time has come for all of us to take universal responsibility for the earth and to look for alternative means of sustainability that will result in important changes in how we live: an inner peace based on principles free from prejudices and blind dogma; use of energy from innovative solar, wind and geothermal sources; and financial solutions that include micro economies that respect the human aspect and value the soul as much as hard assets. The goal is to shift the current economic system toward a regenerative eco-system economy that sustains the human soul as well as the earth?s resources and thus becomes the symbiotic system that used to operate the earth.
GPOP has been involved in relief efforts in Japan since the fourth day of the March 11th 2011 disaster. Our trucks have brought food and water as well as other supplies to the needy and we continue to do so. There is a lot of work to be done in that area of rebuilding and bringing people back to their normal lives. Currently we are engaged in many different projects such as retrieval of body parts within the Fukushima area, support to mothers by training them to do a new profession, support to temporary housing communities with food/water and other things, emotional support to elderly through feeding and massage services + fun events for everyone with food and celebrity involvements to show them that we care!

Striving to strengthen the lives of youth and their families
Evander Holyfield, five-time Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World, attributes much of his success to the support and encouragement he received as a child. As a way to give back to the community Mr. Holyfield created the Holyfield Foundation to help disadvantaged young people become healthy, successful and productive adults. The Holyfield Foundation strives to strengthen the lives of youth and their families by establishing and funding programs dedicated to their athletic, academic and spiritual development.
The Holyfield Foundation provides underprivileged, but deserving youth more opportunities to succeed. Founded in 1993, the Holyfield Foundation's past funding efforts have been geared towards assisting outside organizations, with similar missions, that meet their core demographic. Through these joint efforts the foundation has developed strong ties to the communities in which these organizations serve. While the Holyfield Foundation intends to continue its support of partner organizations to the best of their ability they have also developed and now intend to launch more of their own programs. In doing so, the foundation hopes to better serve their core demographic by commencing a direct relationship with them and getting to the heart of their needs.
Nation Building for Native Youth (NBNY) is a life-changing Diversity leadership empowerment program for Native youth grades 10-12 and their adult advisors. NBNY programs represent 25 tribes from New England, Northern Plains, Great Lakes, Southeast, Southern Plains, New Mexico and Arizona.
NBNY Consists Of:
NBNY and NExT are the foremost programs of The Nick Lowery Youth Foundation (NLYF), a 501 (c)(3) Arizona nonprofit organization. Since 2003, 600 Native and Diverse Youth and adult advisors have participated in NBNY and NExT Summer Institutes. An additional 10,000 youth have been reached through the assemblies, materials, workshops and the work of the adult advisors in their home communities. With grants from the UPS and Lee Kreindler Foundations, and a new partnership with Sharon Lechter's Thrivetime Challenge and Pay Your Family First, NLY Foundation is indeed thriving.
NBNY and NExT comprise 1-5 day institutes throughout the year in diversity leadership training for all youth, from prison youth populations, to high school and middle schools, to the top academic youth in the country at Dartmouth College. We focus on the informal components of awareness and self esteem ~ cognition, perception, and learning ~ to group awareness and behavioral styles, trust building, and team exercises, and the more formal components of public speaking and advocacy.
The outcome is:
a) students that are a far more attractive college candidate
b) greater life-long citizens for a diverse country and world stage
c) a profoundly enhanced awareness of each student's most effective learning fingerprint, group leadership style, and most meaningful life purpose.
In short, we help integrate the Focus, Passion and Purpose that are the prime indicators of all successful community-driven lives. The Gallup Institute found recently that Hope and Engagement are far more important predictors of success than grades and test scores. Education today is missing Focus and passion in the classroom, and purpose outside the school. We are committed to honoring the God-given gifts and passions that raise school work to purpose-filled, life-long education.
NBNY Goals & Outcomes:
The long-term goals of the program are to enable Native youth to lead positive, successful lives and ultimately serve and lead their communities into a new era of not only sovereignty, but also robust economic, social and political health. Youth learn about:
How their personality and style can be most effective within the group How this self knowledge leads to confidence and better leadership through public speaking skills Effective ways to operate in the greater society while remaining true to their culture Ways to mobilize community resources to make a difference.
The inner workings of tribal governments As a result of this program, Native youth return home emboldened to solve critical community problems and needs. They are able to put important new skills to work to change their own lives while improving the lives of others. What is more, Native communities gain services from the youth and their advisors. The adult advisors receive training and materials that help them in their future work in their community, and the community gains an opportunity to view youth in new ways as partners they can trust and respect.

CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
Bahamas Red Cross
The Bahamas branch of the International Red Cross began its work in 1939 under the auspices of the British Red Cross. The Original purpose was to serve the relief needs of Allied troops in the vicinity and particularly those stationed in The Bahamas. In 1945, as World War II ended, priorities shifted from treating wounded soldiers and sailors to treating and controlling disease and malnutrition. The Red Cross fell naturally into service in these areas and established a number of services to aid and care for children, the Center for Deaf Children among them.
The Branch also provided service to the Discharged prisoners Committee, the Child Protection Committee and the Boys Industrial School Visiting Committee.
Haitian Red Cross is not its own organization, it is supported by the regular redccross.
The Salvation Army was founded as an evangelical organization dedicated to bringing people into a meaningful relationship with God through Christ. Its doctrinal basis is that of the Wesleyan-Arminian tradition. It is composed of persons who are united by the love of God and man, and who share the common purpose of bringing others to Jesus Christ. The word salvation indicates the overall purpose of the organization—to motivate all people to embrace the salvation provided to them in Christ.
The word army indicates that the organization is a fighting force, constantly at war with the powers of evil. Battles are effectively waged through an integrated ministry that gives attention to both body and spirit. It is a total ministry for the total person. The Army cooperates with churches of all denominations to meet the needs of the community. Those who have drifted away from God and those estranged from their own religious affiliations are often attracted to The Salvation Army.They are first urged to seek Christ for pardon and deliverance from sin.
