From the Word Sound Power Collective website:
The Word Sound Power Collective’s mission
as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization is to organize and mobilize the Rastafari community and other like-minded peoples to provide support to Rastafari Elders at home and abroad. This support includes providing for basic needs like food, clothes and shelter as well as needs of a medical nature. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the hungry be fed, the naked clothed, the sick nourished, the aged protected and the infants cared for.
Since 2006, over $52,000 dollars have been raised to benefit Rastafari Elder’s Welfare. This includes medical care, daily needs and new houses built from the ground up.
OVER 52 THOUSAND DOLLARS RAISED
Funds have been collected around the globe to assist and aid Rastafari Elders in need.
OVER 13 YEARS SERVING COMMUNITIES
The Collective began as a grassroots effort among a small group and has grown to serve Rastafari Elders in communities in Jamaica, the United States and Ethiopia.
OVER 80 RASTAFARI ELDERS SUPPORTED
The Collective works with Elder Advisors on the ground to determine those in need. We strive to identify both female and male Elders of the Rastafari faith.
