WHY COMMUNICATION?
The fundamentals of communication, most often creates our reality. Studies have shown that an impression is formed within the first 7 seconds of a meeting and impressions usually set the tone and outcome of such meetings.

Impressions, the depth of a message and understanding, the efficiency of deliveries, an articulation of a thought process or conceptualisation of an idea - all depends on one’s ability to communicate effectively. As the world progresses with digital technology, it becomes ever important for the coming generation to master this life skill.

BECOME A FRIEND TO MANKIND


Mission Statement:

Friends to Mankind (FtoM) is an international non-profit organisation that works with individuals, corporations and philanthropic organizations towards the betterment of humanity. Focusing on finding creative ways to raise funds and awareness for other like minded non profits that fit the Friends To Mankind ethos, we are building a family of people saying "Yes, I am a Friend to Mankind" and we are doing what we can, where we are. 

Currently we are building a database of "Friends" that we will use to map out our new community across the world. By the end of 2013 we hope to have over 1,000,000 friends worldwide, and ask you to join us. Our goal is to build a global, user-friendly database allowing people across the world to easily click a location that they either live in, or traveling to, and find out how they can help.

Whether locally or abroad, a single click will put generous people in touch with organizations that need them. From local schools that need text books, or old electronics, to helping a Southeast Asian village provide shelter for victims of sex-trafficking, it will never have been easier to make a difference.  Sign up today and become part of our "Friends to Mankind" family, and do what you can where you are.
