Tkoh Foundation for Humanity has several purposes in
gathering information globally by country. The First reason
is to have up to date information about current events
and trends per country and region, broken down into
religious groups, beliefs and even military spending.
The Second reason for gathering this information
is in an effort to understand people and why they do what
they do. For example; Why a country may go to war with
another country. What are the reasons and could solutions be
found without having to go to war?
The Third reason for this project is to educate
people on what people are like in different countries and to
understand their needs as a people. Its is an effort to
bring equality, freedom and respect for each other and
respect for self. We have learned that there are two basic
theories as to how we started on earth. One theory is
evolution where some have evolved more than others and as
such some are better than others. The other possibility is
to believe in the concept of creation and as such we all
came from Adam and Eve and are connected to one another.
The Fourth reason is for self preservation in
understanding that we all need to get a long better on this
planet if there is going to be a future not only for us as
the current occupants, but our children as well. The facts
are we are running out of room on this planet and the
resources needed to sustain the lives of all the people on
this planet. Besides all of that those that do not have to
worry about starvation are becoming more and more concerned
about just paying the bills and caring for their families.
We at TKOH have learned that short term and long term
needs have to dealt with, but if
we only focus on the short term, then the problems tend to
continue. So in addition, long term changes also need to be
implemented. We have come to the conclusion that there are
three parts to everyone and if all three parts and not taken
care of the problems will continue. With that in mind, we
take a holistic standpoint in helping people in their body
in dealing with a persons physical needs. Soul which deal
with a persons mind in understanding why we do what we do
and once an understanding is achieved provide for ways to
change if a person wants to change. The third part is the
realm of the spirit or the heart, which controls how a
person sees or hears or how they speak of things, which
controls peoples lives in what they do or who they may marry
or even what they do for a living.
To meet peoples needs, we at Tkoh have four basic programs,
which once understood,
pass it on to others:
1) Practitioners or Consulting Programs: (three levels)
deals with reducing debt and increasing income. (Several
income producing programs are available in level 1).
B) Level two
deals with Cognitive Restructuring, which is a study in how
we see or perceive things in the mind and how to bring a
different path. Two separate paths of training are
offered in level two. The first is to prepare a person to
work in an institution such as a hospital or prison. The
other direction is in the private sector, teaching people
how to succeed in life. Success or failure is something that
is learned and can be unlearned if a person wants to
C) The third
level uses concepts and principles from the other two
levels, but also deal with some of the physical needs
reducing stress, increasing productivity, healing and
spiritual aspects of life using Reiki. Quality
herbs and supplements are used to increase and
2) Working with the TKOH Ministry of Health &
Well Being, in an effort to reach people globally as a
licensed minister of TKOH, offering counseling services to
help people see a better path in life and help provide ways
to go down that different path. It is in part, being part
counselor and part teacher.
3) The other option for those that qualify and cannot
afford the other base programs is
We support microfinance
programs that enable the poor, mostly women, to lift
themselves out of poverty and make better lives for their
families. To do this, we partner with a network of
microfinance institutions or practitioners.
4) Staff Fund Raisers in local areas to help raise
awareness of the needs of people locally and globally and
help raise funds to help people.
While the focus of the program is to help individuals, it
becomes a trickle down affect. As people and families are
helped and they succeed, they simply tell others and teach
them how to succeed as well and becomes a chain reaction. We
encourage those that want to go further in the program, to
focus on only working with as many as twelve people at a
time. In this way each person is being cared for as
With more than 400 million poor people cut off from
financial services, there is a huge, unmet need for Tkoh
programs and microfinance. It is estimated that more than 1
billion are in need globally and we are making every effort
to train practitioners to meet those needs of people and
their families, which affects local communities.
goal of TKOH Foundation and GMI is to work to establish
practitioners globally, to help each become successful
whether they work on the Internet or in local communities to
help individuals have a better life and increase the quality
of life. Part of increasing the quality of life is to work
to end starvation and homelessness.
introduce people (communities, business, local schools, etc) to the programs,
from which they form a group of twelve
and each of the twelve is taught to do the same.
Practitioners learn to help people take care of their needs,
treating each as a whole person, carrying for each in the
needs that a persons body has, soul and spirit, in helping
people get out of debt and increase income to care for their
families, but have enough for retirement and help
others. For those that need financing even to do that we
also offer micro-finances, which are small loans to be paid
back over a period of time. It is a proactive effort to help
people and becomes a trickle down affect that also helps
As people are helped they form a group of no more than
twelve at a time and once each has been helped, teach those
in the group to help others or to simply,
3) To collect accurate and up to date
information globally, per community to examine religious trends for our
practitioners programs. It is simply designed to help
practitioners learn about peoples belief systems and their
origins and how to work around beliefs.
4) The other purpose of the program
is to track progress and adjust programs to better suite the
needs of people in local communities. To be able to state goals and possible
outcomes, giving time frames for estimated time of the
completion of goals and work.
5) Overall concepts are to help people
understand that we on this planet are all very connected to
each other. The program works through the success of
individuals and families

World Hunger is a major global problem, but
starvation is a solvable problem.
Already, at the dawn of the 21st century, 40 million
men, women and children (that's roughly 7 Jewish holocausts)
perish annually- that's EVERY YEAR- from hunger, starvation,
disease and malnutrition. Out of the roughly 100,000-150,000
who die every day around the world, roughly 70,000 of these
Is a part of human rights, the right to eat and survive?
That is a debt, but one thing clear is starvation is one of
the causes for war. People do what they do in an effort to
survive. Starvation is a method of genocide, especially when
you stop to consider it is a solvable problem, which also
means if its solvable then it is intentional to allow
starvation to take place.
the division of people is stronger now more than ever, where
the very rich get richer and the poor starve. This goes way
beyond the saying, "if you don't work, you don't
eat," as most that are starving do not have the ability
In 1900, there were approximately 1 billion people
inhabiting the Earth. Today, in 2008, that number is well
over 6,677,563,921 (July 2008 est.) an unprecedented and exponential increase in
100 years of human history.
China and India, the two most populous nations on the
planet (both with well over a billion inhabitants), as well
as the poor, undeveloped and developing nations that
comprise the continents of Asia, Africa and Latin America,
will continue to bear the brunt of world hunger and global
starvation. Africa is by far the poorest and least developed
continent harboring the poorest of the poor and the most
Today, more than 1 billion people in the world are
chronically starving and malnourished. By contrast, the
United States throws away 100 billion tons of food a year.
Of a total of 6.7 billion people worldwide, roughly 1.4
billion live on less than US $ 1/day. 1.7 billion lack
access to clean water. Three billion live without decent
Solving and ending world hunger and global starvation
will require a lot. First and foremost must be the immediate
cessation of a nearly US $1 trillion dollar global military
budget. Funds instead must be re-directed towards creating
healthy, organic, largely vegetarian lifestyles and
Sustainable ecological/economic development with heavy
emphasis on recycling, protecting and preserving local,
regional and global environmental resources must become
paramount. Green businesses that promote care and compassion
rather than greed, exploitation and profit, are also an
important factor in transforming our global society into one
that can survive the 21st century.
The continuing corporate/commercial "green revolution"
and the introduction of genetically engineered foods will
only further harm the environment in the long term as well
as exacerbate the non-sustainability factor and drastically
undermine the prospect of feeding the world's poor and
hungry in the immediate years and decades to come.
the problem of starvation is good for business as it helps
secure our future and our children's future. Not dealing
with it makes the problem worse. It is about humanity or the
very lack of it and that is something that we can all do
something about. It is all a problem of attitude and belief
to allow it to continue. It is a condition of the heart to
either deal with it or choose not to deal with it.
Currently, there is enough food grown on the planet to
provide every single man, woman and child with approximately
3500 calories of nutrition per day (a normal healthy diet
takes in between 2000- 2500 calories per day). Feeding the
world is attainable if given the will and the priority of
the peoples and nations to make it so. An evolving/advanced
world civilization will REQUIRE that feeding its people
become a high priority goal to be met and attained.
Priorities are caused mostly in part by need and the belief
or perception. Beliefs and perceptions are controlled
by the condition of the hearts of people in either helping
end starvation or doing something else. We choose to allow
starvation to continue.
Starvation affects us all.
With starvation also comes more disease and war. If we want
to survive on this planet we all need to seeing things from
a global perspective. Changes can be made, but each of us
need to learn to see life and how it affects us differently
than we currently do.
Homelessness and starvation
can run hand in hand. Homelessness is a bigger
problem, because often the perception of why some is
homeless is because of laziness, etc. People are more
hesitant to help the homeless as they are those starving
even though they do often run hand in hand.
It all runs hand in hand
including crime, drug addiction and disease. People
loose hope and look for quick fixes in order not to feel
things. The more we try to avoid the problems and challenges
of life the more drugs and alcohol are consumed, which
always brings and increase of crime and disease. Short term
thinking is always the result of an addictive behavior. It
is the aspirin mentality, which taken solves the problem (so
we think) for the short term, instead of really dealing with
the real problems. It is important to deal with short term
needs and create long term solutions. Too many of the
problems including poverty, which has to do with food
security or insecurity issue, which is connected to crime
against human beings and also war are all clearly connected
and we need to learn to see the relationships that the
problems may have to provide long term solutions.
years of human rights failure - Governments must apologize
and act now
Amnesty International today challenged
world leaders to apologize for six decades of human rights
failure and re-commit themselves to deliver concrete
"The human rights flashpoints in Darfur, Zimbabwe, Gaza,
Iraq and Myanmar demand immediate action," said Irene Khan,
Secretary General of Amnesty International, launching AI
Report 2008: State of the World's Human Rights.
"Injustice, inequality and impunity are the hallmarks of
our world today. Governments must act now to close the
yawning gap between promise and performance."
Amnesty International's Report 2008, shows that sixty
years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was
adopted by the United Nations, people are still tortured or
ill-treated in at least 81 countries, face unfair trials in
at least 54 countries and are not allowed to speak freely in
at least 77 countries.
"2007 was characterized by the impotence of Western
governments and the ambivalence or reluctance of emerging
powers to tackle some of the world's worst human rights
crises, ranging from entrenched conflicts to growing
inequalities which are leaving millions of people behind,"
said Ms Khan.
Amnesty International cautioned that the biggest threat
to the future of human rights is the absence of a shared
vision and collective leadership.
"2008 presents an unprecedented opportunity for new
leaders coming to power and countries emerging on the world
stage to set a new direction and reject the myopic policies
and practices that in recent years have made the world a
more dangerous and divided place," said Ms Khan.
Amnesty International challenged governments to set a new
paradigm for collective leadership based on the principles
of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
"The most powerful must lead by example," said Ms Khan.
- China must live up to the human rights promises it
made around the Olympic Games and allow free speech and
freedom of the press and end "re-education through
- The USA must close Guantánamo detention camp and
secret detention centers, prosecute the detainees under
fair trial standards or release them, and unequivocally
reject the use of torture and ill-treatment.
- Russia must show greater tolerance for political
dissent, and none for impunity on human rights abuses in
- The EU must investigate the complicity of its member
states in "renditions" of terrorist suspects and set the
same bar on human rights for its own members as it does
for other countries.
Ms Khan warned: "World leaders are in a state of denial
but their failure to act has a high cost. As Iraq and
Afghanistan show, human rights problems are not isolated
tragedies, but are like viruses that can infect and spread
rapidly, endangering all of us."
"Governments today must show the same degree of vision,
courage and commitment that led the United Nations to adopt
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights sixty years ago."
"There is a growing demand from people for justice,
freedom and equality."
Some of the most striking images of 2007 were of monks in
Myanmar, lawyers in Pakistan, and women activists in Iran.
"Restless and angry, people will not be silenced, and
leaders ignore them at their own peril," said Ms Khan.
Hit or Miss - women’s rights report from Action Aid
shows that promises made by the world’s governments to
tackle poverty are failing to deliver because the basic
rights of women in the developing world are being ignored.
The report finds that women and girls formed the majority of
the poor and hungry, and, in south Asia, women are getting a
shrinking share of income as the economy continues to grow.
Ten million more girls than boys miss out on primary school,
while African women accounted for 75% of all young people
living with HIV/Aids.
Stop Violence Against Women Campaign (SVAW)
In 2004, Amnesty International launched its global
Stop Violence Against Women Campaign (SVAW) to help
break the silence around this scandal and create a
world where women and girls are afforded their basic
human rights. Across the globe, Amnesty
International members have united to work towards
making women's human rights a reality; the campaign
is intended as a contribution to the efforts of the
women's rights movements around the world. With this
campaign, Amnesty International will show that the
right of women to be free from violence is integral
to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As
long as violence against women continues, the
promise of human rights can never be fulfilled.
||Violence against women and girls
represents a global health, economic development,
and human rights problem of epidemic proportions and
cuts across all countries, social groups,
ethnicities, religions, and socioeconomic classes.
Now, for the first time, the United States has an
historic opportunity to raise this issue in its
diplomatic work and have an impact on the suffering
of millions of women and girls.

Disputes - international:
and internally displaced persons
boundaries tend to encourage illegal cross-border
activities, uncontrolled migration, and confrontation;
territorial disputes may evolve from historical and/or
cultural claims, or they may be brought on by resource
competition; ethnic and cultural clashes continue to be
responsible for much of the territorial fragmentation and
internal displacement of the estimated 6.6 million people
and cross-border displacements of 8.6 million refugees
around the world as of early 2006. An increase of 6% from
Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimated
that in December 2006 there was a global population of 8.8
million registered refugees and as many as 24.5 million IDPs
in more than 50 countries; the actual global population of
refugees is probably closer to 10 million given the
estimated 1.5 million Iraqi refugees displaced throughout
the Middle East (2007). An increase of 7% from 2006.
Current situation: approximately 800,000-1 million
mostly women and children, are trafficked annually across
national borders, not including millions trafficked within
their own countries; at least 80% of the victims are female
and up to 50% are minors; 75% of all victims are trafficked
into commercial sexual exploitation; roughly two-thirds of
the global victims are trafficked intra-regionally within
East Asia and the Pacific (260,000 to 280,000 people) and
Europe and Eurasia (170,000 to 210,000 people). An increase
of 8-11% in 2006.
Cocaine: worldwide coca leaf cultivation in 2005
amounted to 208,500 hectares; Colombia produced slightly
more than two-thirds of the worldwide crop, followed by Peru
and Bolivia; potential pure cocaine production rose to 900
from 645 metric tons in 2005 - partially due to improved
methodologies used to calculate levels of production. Colombia conducts aggressive coca eradication campaign, but
both Peruvian and Bolivian Governments are hesitant to
eradicate coca in key growing areas; 551 metric tons of
export-quality cocaine (85% pure) is documented to have been
seized or destroyed in 2005; US consumption of export
quality cocaine is estimated to have been in excess of 380
metric tons. An increase of 6% from 2006.
Opiates: worldwide illicit opium poppy cultivation
reached 208,500 hectares in 2005; potential opium production
of 4,990 metric tons was only a 9% decrease over 2004's
highest total recorded since estimates began in mid-1980s;
Afghanistan is world's primary opium producer, accounting
for 90% of the global supply; Southeast Asia - responsible
for 9% of global opium - saw marginal increases in
production; Latin America produced 1% of global opium, but
most was refined into heroin destined for the US market; if
all potential opium was processed into pure heroin, the
potential global production would be 577 metric tons of
heroin in 2005. An increase of 8% from 2006.
