What people are saying about our work

At 05 Initiative, our mission is to address fundamental human needs with compassion and commitment. We strive to feed the hungry, clothe the needy, provide shelter for the homeless, care for the sick, and visit the prisoner. Through these initiatives, we aim to create a more equitable and compassionate world, one where every individual is afforded dignity, support, and the opportunity for a better future

Our vision is “To change our world one person at a time” this reflects a commitment to creating a positive impact on individuals, recognizing that meaningful transformation begins at the personal level. Our vision implies a focus on the empowerment, well-being, and upliftment of individuals, understanding that by positively influencing individual lives, the 05 Initiative aspires to contribute to broader positive change in the world. As a foundation we emphasize a grassroots, person-centric approach to making a difference in our various communities and in the society as a whole.

Our biggest inspiration comes from Jesus instruction “I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. Naked, and you clothe me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me” These words encourages us at 05 Initiative to embody a spirit of service, reaching out to the vulnerable and marginalized members of society with kindness and support, reflecting a commitment to social justice and human welfare.
