WHAT IF IT WERE POSSIBLE...

To eradicate poverty in eight weeks, To create communities of giants, To educate the poor to such a degree that they cease to be poor, Forget how to be poor, And pay it forward…

How P.E.T.E. came to be.

Who We Are

AOH is a group of companies focused on eradicating poverty in the most impoverished areas of the world. We work hand in hand with the people of each community we serve to bring them the education and skills they need to eradicate poverty in their village within eight weeks through the use of technology.

Our Philosophy

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The old proverb is accredited to Lao Tzu and true to his philosophy, we teach people to fish. We work hand in hand with the people in the villages of the most impoverished areas in the world to eradicate poverty village by village in eight weeks. Our sustainable and scalable program focuses on empowering each community to create technology-based services that we help market.

Our History

Poverty Eradication Through Education, P.E.T.E., started in 2010 with the burning desire to reach out to those in need and give them the tools necessary to succeed, on their own.

We started three companies to help us reach our goals–an education company, a short-term rental company, and a food company. With God’s help and guidance, we knew our mission would succeed.

In 2022 we fired ourselves as heads of AOH and welcomed God as our new CEO. Indeed, we drafted a welcome letter thanking Him for taking over and submitting to His will and wisdom. A separate document sets forth our mission to eradicate poverty and make the Gospel of Jesus Christ available to all who want to hear the good news.

Solution: P.E.T.E.

Why P.E.T.E?

Because we love humanity. Because we lose 25,000 fellow human beings to hunger every single day. That’s 1,000,000 people every 40 days. That’s 9,125,000 people per year. Why cross our arms when we can do something about it?

What is our solution?

A Simple, two-step process –

1. Take one willing village at a time and completely transform their lives in eight weeks by giving them the education, skills, and tools they need to succeed. Instill in them the desire to pay it forward.

2. Enroll the community members in the possibility of being contributing volunteers to teach members of other villages, paying it forward.

Solution Specifics

  1. We present our program to the entire village and show them, through the experience of others who have gone before them, how easily poverty is eradicated village by village, community by community.
  2. When they accept, they embark on their journey with our guidance and assistance. We work with the people hand in hand to create the following:
    1. Healthcare – we bring several doctors to begin caring for the ill
    2. Housing – we bring several contractors to begin construction of safe homes, schools, clinics, and any other necessary buildings. This includes solar energy since these remote villages do not have access to power. It also includes water wells. It also includes satellite internet access. It also includes security systems so the products we initially (and subsequently) bring in are not stolen. This is all built by the people with our physical and financial assistance and training
    3. Education – we bring several teachers, depending on the size of the village, to begin training the people in the necessary skills to raise them out of poverty in eight weeks
    4. Work –
      1. We begin a partnership with them in which we teach them how to use simple cameras. We will teach them how to record and edit videos that they will send to us to broadcast and market. 100% of the profit their videos produce goes to their income and the betterment of their village
      2. We begin a partnership with them in which they learn how to trade stocks online. 100% of the profits are reinvested into their village
      3. We begin any other partnerships that are conducive to the betterment of their situation.
      They will eventually be weaned off our assistance and be able to stand on their own, proud, and free from the bondage of poverty. The income we help them make provides OPTIONS for them so they may then be able to follow their own worthy pursuits and dreams and not have to do the work we provided for them at first. We will extend microloans so they can begin businesses of their own. Again, 100% of the profit produced from these loans will be reinvested in their village.

Our Model

Our model is to train entire villages, one at a time. We train the people, educate them, teach them English (the language of business and technology), teach them technology, and teach them skills that are immediately marketable–skills that immediately produce an income even while they are still being trained and learning. We also teach them the mindset and philosophy that it takes to succeed financially–the very mindset and philosophy that helped us succeed.

 

Most importantly, we preach of our savior, Jesus Christ. We do not make our assistance predicated upon whether they will learn of him or not. We simply make the education available. We hope that the joy they see in us is contagious enough that they are curious to learn about Him.

Then arises in them a desire to pay it forward.

We firmly believe we will be able to eradicate poverty among the willing in our lifetime. Education transforms quality of life and makes possible a productive, enriched, future free from the bondage of poverty and full of options.

Entrepreneurship

We believe that the best way to transform a poor village into a prosperous one is through entrepreneurship. We help develop our mentees’ entrepreneurship so they become independent, not beneficiaries, and no longer continue to rely on outside support. Thanks to satellite internet connections and solar power, we can help people in the most remote villages.

Impact

We contribute our companies’ earnings in the following ways:

 

  • 10% immediately goes to the aid of the people we serve
  • 37% is allocated for taxes
  • All costs associated with running our companies
  • Aggressive company growth to increase income whereby increasing what we contribute to our humanitarian causes.
  • All additional income is donated to P.E.T.E.

In addition,  every dollar we receive in the form of donations or fundraising goes directly to the aid of the people we serve. We do not use it for salaries or for any other purpose, as our salaries and all our other expenses are paid for by our companies’ earnings.

Your donations and ours cover all costs associated with educating, training, and providing vital support to our fellow human beings in the most remote areas of our planet.

We are in the business of Poverty Eradication Through Education–the business of Teaching People to Fish.

Vision and Mission

We dream of the day when we see poverty eradicated and our fellow human beings thriving, healthy, knowledgeable, well-nourished, well-clothed, and well-sheltered.

We dream of a day when the poorest and most remote communities are brought to the level of income they need to independently and ongoingly thrive.

We dream of a day in which educated, and in many cases newly literate, community members join hands with us to pay it forward to other communities and together we join hands to make that happen.

We dream of a day when we see leaders emerging to bring Bible teachings and happiness to their fellow human beings.

What if…

The journey of a lifetime begins with a single step. Join hands with us and let’s do this together…
