In 2008 during a four month backpacking trip through India, our founder Hemley Gonzalez experienced firsthand the abuse and horrible conditions which men and women were subjected to under a worldwide famous charity that collects millions of dollars from its donors but largely mismanages such donations. Disgusted and disappointed by this experience, he began working in the slums where he felt that his efforts were directly, positively and effectively changing the lives of those disadvantaged families he came into contact with.

After returning home, he began a campaign to raise awareness about the issues he first experienced and the challenges the children in slum communities face daily, and thus Responsible Charity was born. Through a grassroots network of friends, family and supporters from around the world we gather, track and report all donations for our work online, showing exactly the progress and help such funds allow us to administer to people in need.

Unlike some religious-based organizations which have no progressive plans in effect to educate and empower children, women and men out of poverty, Responsible Charity makes advances in areas of education, planned parenthood and self employment.

Our vision is directly aimed at the evolution of compassion, and creating a new and transparent model for others to follow.
Please join us for an intimate conversation with Hemley about the important role of secular charities in today's world.

As always, we will be accepting donations at the door to help cover our costs (minimum $5 suggested). Thank you.
