The mission of LinksWay is to support the efforts of local leaders to feed, educate and empower the vulnerable and orphaned children of their community.

It is the objective LinksWay Foundation to add value to local initiatives to reduce hunger and improve education for their children. During the past several years we have focused our efforts in rural Swaziland, Africa. We have helped build a water system for a primary school, we have paid school fees and supplies for several young students, we have built a library at a primary school, we serve over a hundred meals a day in the community of Ekuthuleni, we have partnered with the community to build a kitchen/community center, and we are in the process of building a pre-school to serve the young learners.. The past year we have teamed up with the elders and community members of Ekuthulini to build a community center for the children. With your generous support we have completed the building and we are now focused on creating a full service children's care center.

A Letter to Former Students

Dear former students, athletes, and colleagues from Jamestown, Cactus, and Centennial High Schools,

I am currently reaching out to all of you to help me with a very important project.  Several years ago after retirement from teaching and administration in public education, I became involved with a small rural village in the African country of Swaziland.  I served in one capacity and another as a volunteer.  One thing led to another and my family created a small foundation to help create a focus for our efforts.  Currently we are helping the village construct a much needed pre-school for their 4 and 5 year olds.

In the classroom at Jamestown, Cactus, and Centennial we often referred to a quote from Margaret Mead:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

With the power of social media we are putting this quote in action.  Please consider making a small donation to our cause and please pass this note and website on to your fellow classmates, athletes, and colleagues – you can find us on Facebook.

Together this small group can change the world for many children.

Thank you all very much.
