We believe our purpose on Planet Earth is to serve others by being a loving, passionate, and powerful example of how to live productive, meaningful, and positive lives. We believe peace can be secured by empowering people to develop and control their own futures. We put our boots on the ground and have a direct, real, tangible impact on people’s lives. We don’t sit in cubicles, theorize, pontificate, or politicize things. There’s plenty of people out there who talk a good game, but never actually get off the couch and do anything. As Mahatam Ghandi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Leading by example by serving when called.
After deploying to Haiti in 2010 to help the survivors of the earthquake that leveled the small Caribbean country and killed more than 300,000 people, a small group of dedicated humanitarians founded Boots on the Ground (BOTG-NGO) as an international humanitarian aid organization, to provide those in need with assistance required to sustain life, facilitate recovery, and to encourage and promote long-term development, stability, and peace. Our team members have helped countless people, in scores of countries.
