OBAT HELPERS INC
April 11, 2011

OBAT has one mission; To return a sense of dignity and self empowerment to these victims of history who live in these camps without hope.
OBAT works in the areas of education, health, and micro-finance. The education mission is carried out through schools, computer training classes, adult literacy, tuition centers, college scholarships, etc.

Whenever and however their legal status gets resolved, we hope that these folks living in camps for the last 40 plus years will be ready to play their part as contributing members of the society.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the children who get an education and in many cases are able to go to high school and college, eventually becoming the first people in their families to break the vicious cycle of grinding poverty and despair.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

broaden the base of long-term contributing partners.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I help with educational policy and fund raising for OBAT.
