This organization (Plea) was founded in response to a heightened awareness of the growing gap between developed nations and poor/ under-served communities globally, specifically as it pertains to healthcare and education. There are thousands of statistical data reports one can research regarding mortality, illiteracy, injustice, and overall oppression currently taking place in developing nations, however, it is safe to assume that even these statistics grossly under estimate the populations involved and the problems at hand, especially in rural areas globally where electricity is scarce. Furthermore, we have found that information granted to the public about various developing
areas is often tainted in the favor of oppressive leadership, religious welfare, or cultural reputation. With this in mind, we at PLEA decided to form an organization focused less on numbers, and more on providing the resources necessary to give these overlooked individuals a voice.
Resources that are recycled from the millions of dollars worth of waste materials and equipment produced in US can easily be refurbished, packaged and transported to areas in this world where it will be put to use without the danger of international inflation, overhead payoff, and financial mismanagement that usually occurs with monetary donations for purposes abroad.
Plea believes that the sharing of resources, information, and even innovative ideas, is a cost effective way of bridging the healthcare and educational gap between global communities. We believe in accountability through established partnerships, and our primary goal is to establish recurring exchanges of resources over the course of years so that progression can be as constant and continuous for the under-served community just like we are able to witness daily in well developed areas.
