This organization has been the brain child of Dennis Rajagopaul, Dennis has been actively assisting the poor for the past 15 years on a casual basis. The desire to help others has grown so strong over the past few years and he felt that more needed to be done. The pan Foundation is now a registered NON Profit organization and has the ability to reach out on a larger scale and fulfill the Dreams of the team. The Board of Directors and Team Members are all currently volunteers and do this for the love of helping others
