I inherited the principles of Servant Leadership from my parents who have been lifelong Social Entrepreneurs. For more than two decades our family ’ s Jujube fruit orchards have supported my parent’ s ministerial work to uplift communities in China, India, Africa and Bangladesh.
While my parents have focused their work overseas, I chose to focus on the needs within my own community. Our Community Cares (OCCares) was born out of the same principles, to promote positive change through compassion. Our goal is to multiply our impact by supporting and enhancing the work of existing non-profit organizations and cultivating future compassionate leaders through Project Y, a club-based, student-driven youth social entrepreneurship program.
Our mission is to develop socially-responsible youth leaders while at the same time fulfilling service learning and volunteer requirements of their schools. We are currently in five high schools and are in the process of adding more. With your help, we can exponentially impact our world!
