It took me many years to get past my own internal blocks. To find new ways on my own to not let shyness, physical ailments, language barriers and past, negative experiences limit me. It was hard, doing it by myself. That’s why, I’m creating some new, insightful Performance Workshops for young people who’ve had challenges. Physical, emotional or mental abuse. Medical issues. Abandonment. Lack of Love.
A community-based group called “Arch West” began bringing a busload of lightly retarded young men over to my theater every week. A wonderful, professional member of my staff, Mrs. C. Brian, taught Acting, Voice and Movement to these socially challenged gentlemen. After a few months of intense training, we saw significant improvements with some of their social and verbal skills, posture and confidence. We weren’t trying to make them actors. We were simply trying to show them new and more positive ways of dealing with Life.
We had classes for children and plays with cast members (all the parts!) who had various physical and mental disabilities. We also had an art gallery within the building that featured artwork from the Exceptional Children’s Program (another community-outreach organization catering to individuals with various disabilities). I’m proud of what we did there. I want to be just as proud with this new outreach. With your support, we’ll make you proud!
Mission Statement and Goals
This program will help the participants with personal self-esteem issues and also allow them to more easily adapt to new and sometimes difficult situations in their lives.
- To actively look for individual young men, women and children who have physical, mental, social or financial challenges.
- To help them cope with those challenges by providing a specialized series of entertainment-oriented workshops. By teaching these very needy young people new creative skills with which they can view their lives in more positive, more productive ways.
- To empower them to feel stronger, less fearful and to never give up on hoping for better tomorrows. However seemingly impossible, we would like to bring some smiles and add a little joy to who and what they are. We Care!

Environmental Program: Water the Solvable Problem
- 97% of all the water on the earth is salt water, which is not suitable for drinking.
- Only 3% of all the water is fresh water, and only 1% is available for drinking.
- 2% of the available freshwater sources is locked in ice caps and glaciers.
Water is becoming the new Gold. We have initiated an environmental program to help conserve and preserve fresh, clean water for today and future generations. This will also help planet Earth renew herself.
To conserve and sustain an adequate water supply for future generations and spread awareness to the community about water conservation and sustainability. We work with local water companies and citizens to bring awareness to this pressing issue.
With the growing population rates, it only makes sense that we must preserve and conserve this precious resource. It takes several resources to process and deliver water to our homes, farms, businesses, and communities. Reducing water intake also reduces the need for these resources as well as reducing pollution.
- Help promote the conservation and sustainability of water.
- Make community outreach films that include citizen interviews and water company interviews.
- Promote usage of water-saving devices
- Produce and distribute educational material about water conservation to make every audiences realize their significant role in water conservation.
- Create TV programs, radio programs, and local websites to promote conservation.

The Oneness Movement
The Oneness Movement teaches how to move beyond duality consciousness, where people, countries, businesses and organizations often exist in unhealthy competition or conflict, to a consciousness of harmony and connectedness. This requires a shift in awareness, in perception.
Your donation will help us teach the Oneness Movement’s message of
- inclusiveness with diversity,
- understanding our shared challenges and how Oneness perception can resolve them,
- how Oneness perception creates harmony, integrity and how to live in harmony and abundance.
Not only does the Oneness Movement motivate, it educates how the collective power of Oneness consciousness can help create a new and better world paradigm of Love, Wisdom, and Purpose.

Science and Engineering Program
Your donation will help us teach Teen and College age students entering the sciences and engineering fields to be Responsible Stewardship of Science and Technology.
This program was created by Dr. Hassan Rashidi, a Professor at Georgia Tech and Director of the Science and Engineering Department of the IFGT. The program specifically targets today’s youth in order to assist them as they begin to make life and career decisions. Dr. Rashidi designed the program to guide our youth in becoming responsible stewards of technology and science.
Dr. Rashidi has a hands-on approach in opening up previously unknown worlds of medical advances occurring in today’s world. Whether the need be yours, your mother – father – son or daughter, we all want the future filled with those who are mindful and conscious stewards of the benefit or detriment of today’s advancing technology. The program also generates conversations among scientists and society about new technologies, how technology affects each of us and how we can and need to develop a better relationship with it.
We are honored to have supporters who share our vision, contributors such as you who want to make an impact on the world and champion cooperation, collaboration, and transformations in consciousness. Your donation, no matter how large or small, will help us achieve our mission of transforming consciousness and making the world a better place for everyone. Our sincerest thanks for your support.
