We are in the last few days of 2011. By all
accounts, we are happy with the work that's been
done in LifeNets to fulfill our mission of
1. Helping people in practical ways
2. Helping them become self-sufficient
3. Encouraging them to pass on the benefits
LifeNets is not about getting aid to needy people
only. It is more about instilling a different way of
thinking and behavior. It is about migrating from
poverty to self-sufficiency. It's about moving from
depravity to dignity.
Our number one and most effective program is the
Developing Nations Scholarship Program. We now have
close to 80 students who receive assistance from
LifeNets each year in pursuing their higher
education degree. It is so heart-warming to see
people qualify to become medical officers,
accountants, computer specialists and many more
professions that will net a lifetime's income to
support a family. There is no other program that
quite fulfills our mission statement or has the
return on investment as our Developing Nations
This past year we also sponsored young people to
interact with people in Zambia, Ukraine and
Guatemala. We feel it important to have a first-hand
connection with the people we serve.
On this last business day of the year we would like
to ask anyone who could help us just a little bit
more -- to do so. We want to supply funding to all
our programs as we have, but our revenue has fallen
short so that we cannot fund what we have done do to
the degree we have last year.
You can still make a 2011 tax-deductible USA
contribution via PayPal or credit card on our home
www.lifenets.org. You can also send us a check
dated before the end of the year.
In the article below, please look at three recent
LifeNets YouTube videos. One is a short documentary
about our Vinogradov Street Children's Program. The
second one is a gift from or media friends who made
a LifeNets promotional video. The last one is a
documentary about the work of our four volunteers
this past August in Zambia who helped teach English
as a Second Language, computer skills and help with
a camp program for youth.
Thank you for your interest in LifeNets and your
support. We thank those who have made LifeNets their
charity of choice!
