Zorbas Orphans Fund is seeking to partner with individuals, foundations and organizations that have the same vision as we have: to empower the minds of orphans and vulnerable children in the USA, Africa Latin America and the Caribbean. We realize that we could reach out to more orphans through partnerships than working alone. We believe that in order for youths to be able to take care of themselves during their adult years, to negotiate at a higher level in society and to contribute to the socio economic development of their countries, they need to be educated. I am sure you must have heard it said countless times that knowledge is power. At Zorbas Orphans Fund, we believe that people perish for lack of knowledge. Knowledge ensures a better quality of life than ignorance does. As Founder and President, I have seen people perishing for lack of knowledge in the Caribbean and I have seen it in my extensive travels throughout Lain America and Africa. Education has made a big difference in my own life as well Growing up in the Caribbean. I was a vulnerable child at risk of being sexually abused and physically abused because of my vulnerability. Thanks be to Almighty God who gave me a strong Grand Mother who shielded me from such abuse and who committed her life to educating me. Indeed, without a basic secondary school education, my story would have been different. . I could have perished from lack of knowledge through formal education and a higher degree of learning. In Zorbas view, a sound secondary, vocational or university education, plain and simple, is the gateway to human development and socio economic empowerment. No one should be exempted because of their cultural, racial or socio economic condition and that includes orphans and vulnerable youths right here in the USA, in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
