TEA International Inc is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is giving back to the community by helping the underprivileged and underserved population through humanitarian efforts. TEA International Inc. was first conceptualized in 2009 as I was passing through Toboso on my way to Escalante. Toboso, my hometown, seems to be exactly as it was when I left it over 20 years ago. Progress seems to have skipped this little town where I grew up.
Social media has made it easier to express ones dreams and attract people with the same vision. On October 2010 a gathering of Tobosonians and Escalantehanons in Bellerose, NY started the ball rolling, and on November 2010 TEA Int. Inc celebrated its first Christmas Party and Inauguration of Officers. By May 2011 TEA Int. Inc launched its first medical-dental mission and clothing drive. With the help of Mayor E. Valencia of Toboso the medical-dental mission was a great success. TEA Int. Inc. will continue its annual medical-dental mission and clothing drive and will initiate projects as well as support existing projects in communities in need.
TEA International Inc. has over 30 dedicated and compassionate members working towards a common goal. A small organization with big dreams, raising awareness and hoping to change the lives of the marginalized / underserved population of the community.....in our small way.
