For more on the fascinating Aswin Suri, see Aswin Suri on the Importance of Giving Back. He is one of those successful businessmen who believes in giving back to the community in which he lives. For Aswin Suri, this community happens to be Florida, where he owns and operates a highly successful real estate agency.
Aswin Suri has a graduate degree in Healthcare, and an undergraduate degree in Sciences. He puts both of these degrees to work in his charitable endeavors, which benefit a great many homeless and low-income people in his area. He knows the importance of postnatal care, for example, and one of his programs works to ensure that new mothers receive the medical care they so badly need. Children, too, receive care, ensuring a happy and healthy family.
For Aswin Suri, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, life has very little meaning if you do not help others. This help can take a number of forms. Some of us give change to panhandlers. Some of us buy lunch for a homeless person. One man taught a homeless panhandler to write code, providing him with a skill that he can use to earn money. Aswin Suri, in addition to the medical help mentioned above, is deeply involved in helping Long Street Elementary School by providing school supplies and sponsoring field trips, which are so important in creating a lifelong love of learning. He is a strong supporter of the Legacy Housing Project, which helps young girls to remain young girls and not to age prematurely. Young girls are, far too often, victims of sex trafficking, and it is often very difficult to get them out of trafficking and get them reintegrated into a normal, everyday life. Sex trafficking is particularly bad when the girls are homeless – a homeless girl will do just about anything to get off the streets, and this is what the sex traffickers count on. Some of these girls are too old for foster care, so they are taken in by the Legacy Housing Project.
Aswin Suri also helps the Halifax Urban Ministries (HUM) Family Shelter, which provides a safe place for parents with children to live. Not only are food and shelter given, but the shelter works with the parents (often, only one parent is in charge of the family) to give them a good job and transition into an independent living space, where they and their children can have more privacy.
