About AOFI

AO [èi-o] n. ancient Polynesian word; 1. pure light; 2. all colors; 3. daytime

AO Foundation International is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. We serve as a global portal for philanthropy highlighting several well established and efficient charities, such as the GlobalGiving.org initiatives. Our primary focus is to help provide sustainable support for children, orphaned by natural disaster and conflict. The vision for AOFI began with the world/new age music group AOMUSIC and their excursions to record children in remote villages around the globe. With AOFI we hope to establish a new and effective way for the music arts to wage hope and promise for impoverished children in a time of great change and global transformation. Founders: Richard Gannaway, Maya Christobel and Miriam Stockley

  1. I soooo believe in this organization!!! They are truly changing the coarse of so many children’s lives through music! I personally know them and know how authentic they are! Please take the time to listen to AO music and you will feel it for yourself……the music that you feel so deep in your soul comes from the love that they gave these children through music. Besides teaching them the skills of singing, music and voice they will then give back books,pencils,many many school supplies and other gifts that these orphaned and displaced children need all over the world!!!
