We are all connected.
Agape Caritas has one mission: to shed a light of compassion and humanity on global issues that are classed as taboo, unmentionable, restricted, un-relatable or out of reach. Our ultimate goal is to increase awareness, raise vital funds and eventually make a difference to people in need of help, understanding or charity.
Our series of events address issues that affect human beings around the world, and not only impact our lives, but enable us, using love and compassion, to enact change in order to create a better world for all.
Agape Caritas was founded because the way information is procured, ingested and processed has changed. All too often, opinion is shaped by sensational news cycles, carefully edited messages and political filtering.
Sadly, these patterns cause us to lose interest; we experience 'news fatigue', we become overwhelmed, feel too small, too insignificant and remote to make any kind of difference. This has led to people becoming desensitised and disengaged from the world around them, with charitable giving becoming noticeably sporadic and seemingly unfocused in recent years.
On Monday, 27th June we had our first forum; Syrian Stories of Life and Hope, the very first project in our series, to explore the disasters and triumphs, the sheer will to survive and the absolute determination to thrive, found even when facing life’s most challenging environments and decisions.
To embody and fuel the change we want to see in the world by approaching all our projects with compassion first.
To present facts only from an unbiased perspective, without hidden or overt, political or economic agendas.
To publish full, transparent accounting for each project with a detailed breakdown of how sponsorship, ticket and administration funds have been spent and distributed.
To make sure we can all have fun while doing something good for each other.
