The “vision” for Jim's Projects began back in April of 2004, after visiting a young doctor friend of mine in Taraz, Kazakhstan, and seeing all the good we could do together to help the children of Central and East Asia. That is how this small aid organization originally got started. Since then, the range of work we wish to accomplish has grown and diversified with each passing month. Every new person we meet leads us in new and interesting directions. We currently have wonderful people and well-established organizations that are happy and eager to work with us in Kazakhstan, Vietnam, China, and Indonesia. Financing for these kinds of efforts seems to be a never-ending battle in this world. We have accomplished some positive things over the past few years, but so much more needs to be done. For the sake of those who will be helped by our work, we can’t wait any longer.
Our “Projects”, though mainly to help orphaned children in Asia, actually cover a wide range of people. Please see this website's "Our Projects" page to read more about what we wish to accomplish in the months and years to come. These projects include assisting a group of eye doctors who supply free cataract surgery for the poor and elderly of Nepal and Tibet, and a free dental clinic for the poor of Almaty, Kazakhstan. Our primary goal however will always be helping the orphaned children in locations wherever we do our work. The clock definitely feels like it is "ticking"!!!
We just keep praying each and every day for that one "benevolent benefactor" to come along who will see the potential in what we are trying to achieve, and that they will take "Jim's Projects" to the next level! So far that is still just a dream and a prayer... but we never stop trying. We have a deep and sincere desire to complete all that you will see on this website, and we will accomplish it all as soon as we have the funding to do so. There is so much good waiting every day to be completed. I hope you will see it in your heart to help us now too. Please feel free to write to me if you have any further questions.
I hope we can work together from this day forward, to make this a better world for us all. "A Candle Loses Nothing... by Lighting Another Candle." Spend a few moments contemplating the meaning of those words. It's a beautiful quote, and it says a huge amount about life, and about how I want "Jim's Projects" to do all of it's work in this world. Let's bring some "light" to those who need it most. Together, we truly can make it happen.
Thank you for thinking of “Jim’s Projects.”
