To Love Children declares that, as a profit-oriented nongovernmental organization creating a sustainable, efficient and 100% accountable organization, our hope is to remain unburdened with using most of our resources, talents and time in raising all of our money from the good will of our donors. Instead, it is best that we focus on our mission and devote the preponderance of our profits, resources and talents, minus our administration and operating expenses that are reasonable and in line with the highest standards set in the non-profit industry, to channel back our profit for the public good of girl children, people of the developing world and boys in need of educational development and opportunity.
Dr David Kenneth Waldman
An Ambassador to Africa Unidentified in the Global Media
To Love Children Volunteer working in Africa
A person you have never known before:
Dr David Kenneth Waldman, with To Love Children is really a profound transformation in Africa. He has envisioned a new and emerging determination to move African children (girls) and women forward. This comes after Centuries of stagnation and malaise.
Through his programs and projects initiated in Uganda and now—Kenya, David Kenneth Waldman provides a more effective means for resolving the problems related to HIV/AIDS, child abuse, water shortage and marginalization of girls, illiteracy and poverty; the list long to draft. Yet with the aspect and issue of conflict, his Peace Curriculum in partnership with Dalai Lama Foundation, paves away best for Africa's future at current and other generations to appear. Not only those above, but his new project called African Awareness Campaign, we completely realize it being a tool and vehicle that promotes Africa's interests globally.
In simple descriptive terms of defining David Kenneth Waldman and his organization—To Love Children, is an active leader, social entrepreneur and a man with a vision: bearing solutions to the current problems of the developing countries on the globe, who has sincerely motivated the Africans to get determined in shaping their own destiny through sustainable educational development projects.
His Entrepreneurial skills embedded in self-sacrifice for the oppressed, encouraged him to courageously and compassionately to establish a Resource Center and Library in the 19 year war torn and devastated region of northern Uganda in the District of Gulu.
Sincerely, it has become dear and evident that David Kenneth Waldman despite his limited exposure to the global media, through HIS visionary plan and goal-orientation, however, for the African community, has gone beyond the start-up phase, the stage of fragile confidence and is now reaching a level of autonomy and growth, moving from infancy with all its uncertainties and groping, to complete adulthood, with its capacity to face the pleasure as difficulties arise.
His focus of success will always stand and promote the legacy of African Continent and is where any seed of support rendered to him will never be a concept of failure and theory of success BUT instead a long-lasting mechanism ratifying the Millennium Development Goals of the UN.
Nevertheless, his hard-earned success also means a major change in the area of support services for developing countries: a movement from an "offer" strategy to one of "demand" reality. And from now on, the development of the Africa means a lot to people who are creative, innovative, compassionate, visionary and active in its borders of location (grass-root) when led by the social, humanitarian, and charitable pioneers like David Kenneth Waldman.
