Since then, we have established our reputation by cutting through red tape and bureaucracy - while connecting volunteers and corporations to international aid projects.
A few things to know before we get started...
1. We are just a small organization trying to make a difference.
2. We only work where we can involve members of the local community so they can sustain the program when we leave.
3. We only fly coach, stay in cheap hotels, and always overtip our servers.
4. Sometimes we sound like pageant contestants (or like we're on a first date) when talking about the world - all full of world peace, sunsets, puppies, and how much we love Thai food.
From a decision made in the jungles of Cambodia - to taking calls from the White House, speaking on behalf of refugees at the United Nations, and working with groups around the world - Guerrilla Aid continues to grow and make personal differences around the world.
Whether it is an orphanage, school, clinic, or group that we find we can help with, we look for stories such as Phil and Kanchana Thornton in Thailand, or Emmanuel Tasur in Kenya. These individuals make an impact by serving those around them –and we may be able to provide that little extra push.
Our projects are geared towards helping individuals become self-sufficient, and range from poverty, AIDS/disease, human rights, education, and the environment.
