Jacob David CEO’s Statement: “My main passion is to help children.” Jacob David has been an ardent supporter of Children based non-profit sites for several years like UNICEF, Operation Smile, Doctors without Borders, Empower Orphans, Kids Against Hunger, Samaritan’s Purse, Hand of Hope, and several others which inspired him to start his own non-profit.
Inspiration: Jacob David says, “Growing up in India, two stark images still stand out in my mind. I was about 10 years old. I had gone to attend a wedding. After the wedding, I was standing outside the hall. I saw the servants throw the left over food (that the guests ate) into open trash receptacles (concrete rings). Immediately about 10 children ran to that trash can and took those plates out and began to eat on the street. Along side, stray dogs ate with them. The second stark image is of a kid drinking water from a puddle in the road. It had rained the last hour. A kid drank straight up from the puddle in the road and went back to playing. These images haunt me. We would not dream of a life such as this for our children, will you? In 2010, I saw a video on YouTube that inspired me to take action. Kids in Philippines as young as 5 years old were sifting through a landfill to collect recyclable items. They were walking without proper shoes, torn clothes among the toxic fumes of the landfill, filled with garbage, dead animals, burning tires, toxic chemicals, disposable syringes, and broken glass. Watching the video created a sense of urgency in me. We would not let our children to pick trash in a landfill. Why must these children be any different? Just because they have no parents is no way for these kids to live their childhood in utter poverty and hardship. It jump started in me the need to start a non-profit.
