We directly improve the lives of exploited, at-risk, destitute children and the forgotten, suffering elderly, enabling them to become "beacons of light" and share the same gifts of peace, goodwill, and generosity with others for the rest of their lifetimes.
We help the poorest and neediest children and elderly, and the forgotten destitute, with the basic human needs: food, shelter, medical services and educational assistance. We help the destitute begin to help themselves.
Spreading peace, goodwill, and hope throughout our world by helping the poorest and neediest gain status and their rightful place in their societies is the vision of Operation Shanti. Often, the poor are robbed of their human rights by being discarded, ignored and treated inhumanely. The ultimate goal of our work strives to give the poor back their rights as human beings.
