A little about Luke:
Luke T. Anderson is the President and a co-founder of the non-profit organization Para Ti Global. He is a 17-year-old honor student who is currently a senior at De La Salle High School in Concord, CA. His non-profit work extends to The United States, Mexico, the Philippines, and Cuba. Luke attributes his charitable orientation to his religious faith, family values, and belief in the importance of service.
Luke is in many of the service clubs in his high school and is an officer in two. He likes to involve his classmates in service and recently ran the school's most successful Cereal Drive that raised $16,342 through online donations.
When Luke T. Anderson first visited Mexico at 11 he was excited for the fiestas and beaches, but soon noticed the poverty of kids as young as him, especially in villages surrounding the resorts. With the support of his sister, Luke co-developed the idea of bringing "education to the future generation" and founded Para Ti Global with his sister in 2016. Luke hopes you will support Para Ti Global in any way you can!
Luke wants to become a physician. He hopes as a future physician he can increase Para Ti Global's medical work in places of poverty.
As CTO (chief technology officer), Luke handles the website and donation platform. Any questions regarding online donations can be directed to Luke.
