"Touched by Kindness, Moved by Results" - Alek 2017
Growing up Canadian & in Canada was a huge privilege, the desire to make the most out of this mega-opportunity & sharing it with others, was the reason I got involved in humanitarian work!
To kick off 2017, my campaign was "Touched by kindness, moved by results.". Acts of kindness only go so far, in the end, people are moved by results. When you combine those two aspects, success is contagious & the possibilities are endless!
AlekGo projects led to collaborations with elected officials in Canada & abroad, Embassies/Consulates & International Police Forces, while teaming up with organizations ranging from local to international. The projects took place across Canada, South America, Caribbean & the Balkans!
Together, we can continue to accomplish great feats & inspire others to get involved, across communities!
Colombia: Worked with a boys orphanage & shelter for abandoned elderly women with mental/physical disabilities
Ottawa: Interactive Ottawa Fury VIP experience for recently arrived Syrian youth at Sawmill Creek PS
Dominican Republic: Worked with DR National Police Force to engage youth through baseball. Areas targeted were hit hard by hurricanes, also being high poverty areas, where child exploitation is a real concern.
Ottawa: Designed Young Offenders Crime Prevention-Intervention Action Plan, that works with businesses across Ottawa to help Young Offender find employment & build skills for success.
