Founder:..."EWEF believes in and practices teaching to fish rather than giving fish. We strictly promote hands-up, NOT hands-out! So please join us in this effort to make the world a better and peaceful place for us all. Together as partners we fulfil the notion given us by the 'Most high'; of doing onto others as we would like done onto us; particularly to those less fortunate amongst us for no fault of thier own but circumstance. Doing this, does hold true the premise that we are indeed our brothers keeper!"
