Agapao translates, “To act in love; that is, to do caring things or act caringly.”
Agapao is more than the name of our organization...it's our heartbeat.
Why do we call it a movement?
- Agapao is an action verb. It’s a Greek word that means “to love. To act in love; that is, to do kind things or act caringly.”
- Secondly, we are moved to help those who need a helping hand.
- Finally, we strive to move others – individuals and organizations – into action as part of our culture to “to love. To act in love; that is, to do kind things or act caringly.”
Our heart has been broken for those who have gone uncared for, who are helpless, who have no one to protect them from the harshness and the evils of the world we live in. The ones that have been deemed “unlovable,” “forgotten,” and “unimportant.” When we see the face of these children without parents to care for them, our only response is to say “yes.” We will love you. We will shelter you. We will clothe you, and show you the value of your true worth.
Our goal is to “mobilize the passions of ordinary people who are seeking to make an extraordinary impact in their world” through showing love in action – we do that by starting with the person in front of us.
