"At Orbus, we dream of harmony in the world, a world without poverty or marginalization ... a world balanced with sustainability, respect for each other, and respect for our earth. We believe the power is in the youth that come after us and the knowledge is found in the elders that came before us. It is up to all of us to act together. No matter how small our acts are, together we will make a difference."
Orbus helps to connect the communities around us.
We support youth and elders in areas of education, arts, sports, music, culture and life long learning.
Helping youth grow and develop into great citizens is the the building block of better future communities. How a society looks after its elders is the hallmark of a great culture and community. Our goal is to sustain this from generation to generation.
We also have global responsibility. Recognizing that global responsibility starts at "home" means taking small steps to help the environment and the globally marginalized. A million small steps by many of us will make a difference. It is the beginning of a quiet but effective social revolution to make the future world and the local communities within it a better place for generations to come.
Our vision is that this social revolution will have not only immediate impact in our local communities but global impact as our vision grows and businesses and people of all communities work to better their communities future.
Our dream is not to change the world overnight, but to do our part in making it better.

"There are a lot of good people in business and the professions that do not have a lot of extra time to dedicate to building a better community. With a little help from Orbus programming, we can ensure that there is a strong business case for being good community citizens. We can create a win-win scenario that is good for business and our communities"

COMMUNITY CONNECT PROGRAM
Often you hear about the "good old days". Those days and communities have changed forever with the internet and new interactive media. The connection between neighbours that made for good neighbourhoods has been lost to online communications and interaction.
Our Neighbours Online websites are designed to bring back the things that used to make our neighbours vibrant, healthly and safer environments. This will go along way to making all of our communities a better place for future generations, by building the foundation for communication between neighbours unique to their own neighbourhoods.
