Equality and Humanitarian Causes

At amigodata we share a strong opinion on humanitarian rights and causes and gladly join the world in the fight to prevent humanitarian abuses and will do our part to make our world one that is open to all regardless of ethnicity, race, country of origin, religion, sexual orientation, financial status, political views, or anything else that makes up the myriad of people that make our world so interesting and diverse. I’m not sure where you stand, but for us, the beauty in our world comes from the fact that there are so many of us that are different and unique. If we were all the same, that would be a sad and dreary place to be. It’s time to make a difference, not just talk about it, but join in the struggle to make the world an even playing field for all.

Human Trafficing

Human trafficking is the process of trapping people through the use of violence, deception or coercion for personal or financial gain.

Child Labor

Over 70 million children around the world work in hazardous conditions in agriculture, mining, domestic labor, and other sectors...

World Hunger

Globally, about 9% of the world's population — Approximately 821 million people — go to bed on an empty stomach every night and each year the number rises.

Extreme Poverty

Around 1.89 billion people, or 36% of the world, live in extreme poverty. Nearly half of the population in 3rd world countries live on less than $1.25 a day.

Clean Water

One in three people do not have access to safe drinking water, two out of five people do not have a basic hand-washing facility with soap and water.

Equality should not be a dream, it should be an absolute birth right

be a part of the solution

Over the last 2,000 or so years, there have been many changes in our world. Most of them for the better, but they never seem to come easily. Even when change does come for the better it seems to happen at a snail’s pace, usually at the cost of countless lives and almost always as a by-product of something else. It would be nice to believe that wars are fought over stopping the evils in this world, yet almost always they are simply over; power and money, and the blood that is spilled is always by those who have nothing to gain from either outcome. For those of us fortunate enough to have been born in a modern industrialized nation with a representative government and a modern functioning healthcare system, we find it easy to fall into our placated lives of luxury, where even some of the lowest of income levels still live much better; as compared to those who have had the misfortune of being born in third world nations, to a level of poverty most of us can barely conceive. The thought of one of our children dying from something as simple to remedy as an intestinal bug, is something most of us can not even understand. Yet throughout the world countless children die every single day from something that a simple pharmacy remedy that costs less than $1, could easily cure. Or even worse of starvation, that could be stopped with just a small fraction of the wealth that seems to be continuously hoarded by the so very few. The fact remains that countless millions of people in today’s world do not even have access to clean water. Something so basic to us that it seems almost impossible to understand. In a world with so many resources and so much wealth, is it truly necessary that even one child die needlessly. 

“I hold a vision of this blue green planet, safe and in balance. At the end of the Fossil Fuel Era, we are emerging to a new reality. We are ready to make the next leap – as momentous as abolishing slavery or giving women the vote.”

Elizabeth May, Leader of Green Party of Canada
