Welcome

We, Selam Hendrix and Irum Godil, found this non-Profit in the aftermath of Covid-19. Since 2021, we have been a fully registered organization, based out of the Puget Sound area.

Since both of us have other full-time commitments, we have intentionally decided to keep the scope of the work involved here to be small enough and yet impactful enough to make a difference for our neighbours.

  • Our main goal is to serve the underprivileged and the Refugee Population
  • Our charter is to make people as independent as possible, instead of directly paying their bills or handing out funds
  • We want to incorporate the following in our programs:
    • Build Literary Media, such as Youtube channels and actual documentaries on the lives and struggles of the refugees
    • Help the refugees and other folks to capatilize on their actual skill sets, such as through cooking shows, teaching languages, showcase their cultures etc
    • Where applicable, we pay rents and provide food assistance. We mainly want to cover this only through a dedicated pool of money and let other charities and aides take care of these

If you would like to volunteer with us, please feel free to email us at admin@thereforyu.com
