New vision educational development provides education on chronic malnutrition and hunger through the dissemination of facts, charts, graphs, and statistics. We provide this information by presenting live media interviews, lectures and slideshows titled, “The World Hunger Exhibition,” at schools, libraries and other public venues. These presentations focus on the causes, current efforts and solutions to chronic malnutrition and hunger. They also highlight the geographical, economical, and social aspects of chronic malnutrition. Examples of said presentations that have been given are at the Lewis and Clark Public Library in Helena, Arizona, the Klondike River Lodge located in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada, and at the Barstow branch of the San Bernardino County Public Library in California.
We take advantage of various social media outlets such as discussion forums, blogs and social networking sites.
We also chronicle our efforts and activities on the corporation’s website. One feature that will be incorporated into the website is an educational essay written by professionals such as public health administrators, dieticians, physicians, and activists in the same or related field(s).
By offering educational events as well as our publications and website, New vision educational development is educating the public on subjects useful to individuals and beneficial to the community and is advocating and defending human and civil rights secured by law.
New vision educational development aims to provide disaster relief aid in the form of food and water to the severely disadvantaged who are affected by either a lack of existing community resources or a lack of funding and supplies to existing local infrastructures in the time of need. New vision educational development operates and focuses its resources locally and globally to communities who meet the aforementioned criteria regardless of their geographical location.
Examples of the severely disadvantaged populations would be those affected by natural disasters and the displaced victims of sectarian and ethnic violence such as the devastating results of Hurricane Katrina in the states of Louisiana and Mississippi and refugees of Rwanda civil war in Africa.
11.4 million refugees are under the care of the United Nations. It is estimated that the total number of those who have been displaced has surpassed 25 million world-wide as of 2020. The total for 2006 was 9.9 million (source: The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).
We provide disaster relief aid through organizing volunteers to serve in affected areas by coordinating and carrying out the distribution of food and water. The provisions will be derived from our general fund and public support.
Distribution to Other Organizations and Individuals
We do not fundraise for any specific organization and New vision educational development is not organized solely to contribute or fundraise for any specific entity. However, at the discretion of the board of directors we may at times, choose to contribute to other organizations who share a similar mission and only if the contributions further our exempt status, with the objective to eliminate and alleviate chronic malnutrition and hunger.
One example of an organization which we may contribute to is the “Friends of the World Food Program” (EIN 13-3843435) which is a U.S.-based, nonprofit, nonpartisan 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that focuses on building support in the United States for the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) and other hunger relief operations which shares a similar mission to Transcontinental Humanitarian Corporation. WFP is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, working to put hunger at the center of the international agenda and promoting policies, strategies and operations that directly benefit the poor and hungry.
New vision educational development may exercise its right under law to contribute to non 501 (c)(3) organizations only on the condition that New vision educational development retains control over the use of the funds and maintaining records showing that the funds are used for exclusively charitable purposes in accordance to our mission.
Programs for Volunteers
At times, per the discretion of the board of directors, we may provide internships or volunteer opportunities which will provide opportunities for involvement in outreach activities and programs in order to have a greater impact for change. One of the activities that volunteers may be involved in is basic education on topics such as nutrition, diet, agricultural techniques, livestock growing, and water treatment in order to promote sustainability. Such activities shall always be free of charge to participants and will not include compensation to the volunteers.
