Replacing repressive regimes with democracy through organised non-violence

To help people to successfully gain their freedom from oppressors with a minimum of bloodshed we have begun a Facebook campaign. Our campaign is also humbly offered as a means to empower those who desire world peace for themselves and their loved ones. Please help by letting as many people as possible know about it through Facebook; other social media sites and email. In this way you can help to spread vital knowledge about organising effective non-violent action throughout the world. Please read more here.

If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.'

Shanti Lion Children's Trust

We have established the Shanti Lion Children's Trust in order to earn money for the following work:


Orphanages

We intend to open orphanages all over the world wherever they most are needed. It's not difficult to put up buildings and move orphans into them, but our challenge will be to make stable loving homes that function as real families. All children will receive a normal education, as well as special education in how to live successfully. Much of this will focus on developing good character, but will include dispute mediation, constructive problem solving and leadership. They will also be encouraged from a young age into community volunteering, so they may acquire a strong sense of community belonging. Once they reach a specific age, we hope to offer them the chance to move to our other orphanages in other countries and mix with children from all over the world. This way we hope they will develop a "global citizen" type mentality as they get used to living with other children from many different cultural backgrounds.

When they graduate it is hoped that many will have the potential to become pillars of their local community. In this way they may help resolve the world's problems beginning at a community level. Money and resources will then be directed toward those graduates who demonstrate sufficient hunger toward achieving social objectives. This will help bypass the problems encountered when money and resources are given to achieve social objectives in needy countries but instead end up in corrupt people's pockets.


Child slavery

We intend to become involved in work to locate and identify child slaves, free them and finally rehabilitate them. We will also be looking to extend our work to adults.


Child soldiers

We intend to become involved in rehabilitating former child soldiers.



Our other works paid for separately include or will include:


Reforming retail banking through our consumer organisation Honourable Banking

To help stabilise the world's financial system we have set up a people-power initiative to build ethics into the world's banks. Our purpose is to help the banks become much more mindful of their society's best interests and mindful of not causing poverty. It is being initially organised for the United Kingdom, but it should be easily replicated all over the world.

Coming Soon... The Tree Planters Employment Society. Its purpose is to employ disadvantaged people to run renewable energy projects and plant trees to create forest and woodland worldwide in carefully selected areas. By disadvantaged people we mean ex-prisoners, people with mental health problems, homeless people, people with learning disabilities and people with visual impairments, the landless poor, refugees and so on — people who normally struggle to gain fairly paid work. This work will help protect and enhance the natural environment to help reduce the burden, future generations are expected to face, due to environmental neglect caused by present and past generations.

Investment banking

We intend to start an investment bank. Unlike many existing banks, all profits will be going toward social objective maximisation, through helping to fund some of the social and environmental works outlined on this page and more. An amount of profit will also be put aside for continued development and expansion.


Micro-credit to help end world poverty


We intend to become involved in directly helping to pull people out of poverty using micro-credit through not-for-profit enterprises. To learn more about not-for-profit micro-credit please click here.


Sharing technology


We intend to become involved in spreading helpful technology more evenly around the world. Many people in impoverished countries suffer today unnecessarily as they cannot access existing technology that could help them utilise their own resources much more efficiently.
