Nourishing Roots is a project I, Amanda Froelich, have created as a part-time philanthropic mission and opportunity to extend my travels while planning and working on other humanitarian efforts.
My name is Amanda Froelich. I am ambitious, creative, hardworking, and continuously inspired to give back. I’ve planned so many entrepreneurial adventures that all have one focus: creating a more balanced, healthy, and inspired world…but so far have not accumulated the required resources or materials to make all manifest – yet.
I am a RHN Holistic Nutritionist, ACE Personal Trainer, ISD Detoxification Specialist, plant-based (live foods) chef, freelance writer (alternative health and travel), energy worker, and spiritual devotee of no particular religion. I believe that anything I believe in can become possible, and that’s why I started Nourishing Roots, as one of many projects which will be eventually created to give back and help provide education and resources to others currently without.
*Organize and found a non-profit, Bloom for Life, that partners with like-minded sponsors and organizations to teach holistic healing, sustainable living, and spiritual connectedness through educational resources and application to villages, communities, and urban areas in need of such education.
This is a large ‘umbrella’ that would offer the many programs I have planned, but such a huge endeavor has its challenges, so for the present I am traveling to foreign locations to form relations, gain insight and experience in locations I hope to one day work in, and carrying out my philanthropic aspirations in other ways.
To give back in the way I feel inspired to (through loving service and focus on healthful, connected living) requires resources I have not currently obtained. There are many fee costs for starting a non-profit, partnering with organizations, and providing educational resources to locations.
Plus, that’s not counting the financial obligations I, the traveler and researcher, must invest in order to make such projects manifest.
Therefore it has become a necessity to figure out ways to travel affordably, pursue humanitarian efforts while working in my preferred field and scheduling my own time to manage other endeavors, and continue to grow Bloom for Life, the NGO I hope one day manages this project.
It seems silly to me that what holds so many people from giving back through volunteer work are the costs necessary to volunteer at orphanages and educational centers. Many want to help – but where are the funds to come to make that possible?
I’m in the same boat, therefore I figured the best way to travel, make relations, and give back (while encouraging and education the youth) would be to form a exchange-type program which would greatly benefit those centers and orphanages I partner with.
The hope is to reduce accommodation / travel costs by offering service, and also gain experience through first-hand application of resources I have worked hard to produce.
Plus, such efforts (which I hope will grow as the non-profit grows, as well) have opportunity to provide income which can be given to the orphanages I’ve been allowed to work with in the first place!
Nourishing Roots is specifically focused to work with orphanages and centers in need of healthful education, locally sourced food, and projects that inspire unity.
