What is philanthropy?
There are some words that have taken on mul- tiple meanings, nuances, and uses throughout their history. “Philanthropy” is one such word. The liter- al meaning of this word is clear from its Greek roots: “phil” meaning loving or having an affinity for, “an- throp” meaning human; together “love for one's fellow man.” But for the person who recognizes his or her participation, neces- sity, and significance in our world, this word can also connote unlimited poten- tial for self-improvement and the chance to enter an amazing new world – a world of new relationships with interesting people, a joyful world of shared la- bors, a world of unique possibilities.
Many people around the world, having achieved wealth and prosperity through hard work and tal- ent, are ready to share that wealth and knowledge ac- quired on life's difficult path. International Life mag- azine is for YOU, those philanthropists, benefac- tors, patrons and spon- sors who are acutely aware of their responsibility be-
fore humanity and of the necessity of making the world a better place to live. International Life, a multilin- gual publication distributed worldwide, along with our companion site, www.in- ternationallife.org, is a plat- form for people living on different continents to be- come acquainted with one another and share infor- mation, a bridge between the charitable movement and all the people on the planet. International Life has set before itself the goal of covering the most impor- tant and interesting chari- table projects touching the lives of people all around the world. By sharing the stories of philanthropic projects and programs in the pages of our magazine, we strive to assist their suc- cessful progress. We are sure that with your help, ideas, and suggestions, we can accomplish our goal of becoming your guide to the most useful, outstand- ing, and interesting inter- national cultural and politi- cal events and activities. Sincerely yours, NiNa MelNicheNkO President of International Life magazine
