Reach Dem (UK) Limited was established in January 2013 as a direct result to the changes to the way we now live our lives.
More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. The social, cultural and economic problems and opportunities that are generated by this concentration of people have become symbolic of the contemporary living today.
As our society has become more technological, with increased wealth and urban growth many people have lost touch with a strong community consciousness. People have greater individual freedom, but the cost has been greater social isolation.
Considering, then that social engineering has played a big role in shaping the prevalent system of consumerism today, the establishment should now rise to the challenge of re-shaping it according to more sustainable patterns. However, this is not the case, with the impending collapse of the welfare state system and the growing effects of globalisation, these have created new problems and, thus, new needs.
The urgency to find new solutions have caused us to organise ourselves in such a way to deploy and promote self-help tactics, which, to some, may be deemed unconventional but none the less will provide innovative ways forward to the challenge the existing structures foisted upon us at this time.
OUR VISION - Is to ensure that no one is ever deemed unreachable by any society: be they the starving of Africa, that homeless man in the street or that woman who dares to speak out about domestic violence.
OUR MISSION -...is to fulfil a mandate given to us by the word of God (Matthew 25:35-36):
to clothe those who are naked, visit those who sick, visit those who are imprisoned, feed those who hunger, give drink to those who thirst.
We therefore propose to revolutionise and reform traditional ways of reaching out to mankind, particularly focusing on empowering those who are deemed impoverished because of their socio-economic backgrounds, children, young adults, single parent families, persons who are infected with HIV/Aids and persons who have been imprisoned or deported.
