OmWeb Charity Policy
OmWeb’s charitable policy reflects a commitment to inner peace and to world peace. It doesn’t matter if you choose meditation, daily prayer, sacred texts, yoga, journaling, or expressive art as your path to become more familiar with that small voice within. You may find it easier to stay centred in the Witness, the True Self, Buddha Nature, the Atman, the High Self, and the Soul. We all find our true home somewhere inside… after years of searching outside of ourselves and trying to control our outer world we learn that the answer lies within. The answer is simple, but the road to that answer takes a lot of work.
OmWeb fulfils its commitment to this policy by donating 5% of profits in support for Education the key to building a society that can overcome poverty in a sustainable manner and direct donations to UNICEF.
Education is key to building a society that can overcome poverty in a sustainable manner. Investing in human capital brings about powerful social change and creates opportunities for those in developing countries to realise their full potential and to become leaders of the generation to come.
On current levels of progress by 2015 there will still be 56 million children out of school with the majority of them living in conflict-affected or fragile states. The best international mechanism for coordinating education aid is the Fast Track Initiative (FTI). The UK has played a major role in aid for education over recent years and because it is such a large donor the Department for International Development (DFID) is a prominent Board member of the FTI.
For detailed information please see: “A Fast track to 2015; Educating the world's children for a better future” presents a concise overview of EFA FTI's track record in providing universal access to primary education to its 38 low-income partner countries since its inception in 2002, and as part of its commitment to the Education Millennium Development Goals. http://www.educationfasttrack.org/media/library/EFA_FTI_A_fast_track_to_2015_10-1-09.pdf
UNICEF's mission is to provide special protection for the most disadvantaged children: victims of war, disasters, extreme poverty, all forms of violence and exploitation, and those with disabilities. Our work aims to fulfil their basic needs and restore their dignity.
On 20 November 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
To commemorate this landmark, UNICEF is dedicating a special edition of its flagship report, The State of the World’s Children, to child rights. The report and accompanying video address the progress that has been made in the last 20 years and the role the Convention can fulfil moving forward into the future. http://www.unicef.org/rightsite/sowc/
