|is the Sanskrit word for the front yard of a home where community members gather to give each other comfort, support, and nurturing.
||a Supportive Community Centre; a non-profit organization that proposes to facilitate independence and cause community. We also aim to provide personalized emergency relief to those in disadvantaged life situations, by providing unconditional support and wraparound services.
|is that in order to help our community members facilitate independence, we must facilitate our own. As such, we do not count on government or external funding, we raise our own funds. This is our definition of independence. We are committed to providing educational workshops for everyone that are easily affordable and promote self-reliance whilst causing community.
||Since Aangen was founded in 2000, we have been able to develop programs that help our local and global communities. While we have supported a number of initiatives, we have two core programs. Our Families in Need program helps local people who are facing challenging time and our Global Orphanage Program donates funds, books and clothing to numerous orphanages worldwide. At least 10% of all our Marketplace sales go directly into helping both programs. Additionally, funds raised from our Spring & Fall Yard Sales and Community Dinners help fund both these programs that are year-round.
