Why
Why The Local Charity? This question had percolated in our minds for years. Over the years, our sense of why has evolved – as most organisms strive to.
The fear is that The Local Charity would not create the type of impact that extends further into the future than a few months or one lifetime. This fear had paralyzed the motivation and provided an excuse not to give it our best.
We choose to lean into love instead, we have witnessed the life-changing contributions The Local Charity had produced for individuals and for families. Really inspired to reignite what we had started and come back with the conviction that every life we touch is significant. That in itself will manifest and transpire from one life to generations.
We refocused our vision from relief of poverty to breaking the cycle of poverty. Our mandate that underpins the drive for each of our program is that it aligns with the promised goal.

Education is a huge component of that. We are committed to empowering individuals and families we cross paths with towards their best lives.
The Local Charity promotes and celebrates self-love, generosity, and empowerment. We are operated entirely by volunteers with no overhead expenses. Every life we contribute to matters, and every contribution we get helps the cause go that much further.
Whether your contribution is monetary, labor of love, spiritual support, or any other form – thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
