The OraPub family strives to improve the lives of people who have had their dignity stolen.
Through war, famine, oppressive government, violent religion, disease, dysfunctional family and society, or disability we desire to help.
Through financial contributions and volunteerism we directly help to restore peace, stability, and above all dignity.
While the employees of OraPub have a history of giving, OraPub as a corporation started its corporate giving program in July of 2009.
How We Help
For every student who registers for an OraPub training course, OraPub makes a US$25 contribution to an OraPub affiliated non-profit organization. Students have the opportunity to choose which organization OraPub will donate. The student also has the opportunity to contact the organization for future involvement.
Organizations We Support
Reda and the Yezidis, Sinjar Mountains, Northern Iraq
Reda and his family are from Egypt. He has learned English and is trained in social relief and leadership. In 2008, his family moved to Syria for one year to work directly with Iraqi refugees. He and his family have completed their move to Northern Iraq in July 2010. Here is an excerpt from an email we received from Reda. We [my family] work among the Yezidis. This is a particular people group of about 700,000 people living only in the Nineveh Plain and Sinjar Mountains of Northern Iraq. They are generally despised by both Arabs and Kurds and are poorer than other Iraqis. There has been very little development work amongst them. Their villages are often poorly served in education and health care, with poor supplies of electricity and water.
Compassion First, Indonesia (HQ in Beaverton, OR USA)
Today, there are an estimated 2.2 million women and children that been trafficked into the commercial sex trade.
Compassion First rescues sexually trafficked girls in Indonesia and the broader Asia/Pacific area. Their transitional care centers provide all encompassing life-care for survivors including housing, medical/dental care, life and spiritual care, case management, reintegration services and education to the fullest extent of each childís abilities and dreams. Their first Southeast Asia centers are being placed in Indonesia, a country particularly under-served where victim intervention and aftercare are concerned. Geography and economic disparity lend to conditions that make trafficking of humans a robust industry.
