Collaborative Doers for Humanity


In addition to our global network of volunteers, CARTHA has teamed up in non-traditional ways with numerous organizations as well as formal and informal networks to operate, and design, develop and/or deliver CARTHA’s programs in targeted yet cost-effective ways. Several academic institutions have invited us into their seminars and community of scholars, researchers, and students to share CARTHA’s work. This type of broad-based support is critical to advancing CARTHA’s work. We express our gratitude to each and every one of our volunteers, collaborators, and program partners in enabling us to learn, develop, share as well as implement CARTHA’s mission. We include a few of them below.

If you have teamed up with CARTHA and would like to see your name included below, please be sure to call or write to us.
