Angel San Miguel is our Managing Director.
Angel’s passion for helping others has been a life long journey. Beginning at the age of 6, tending to abused abandoned animals in the neighborhood. Not understanding how or why she just knew help was needed.
A few years later at the age of ten, it was after a racial out lash, which dramatically changed her life with a deep desire to help the world. She and her friend were attacked and suffered injuries by other children. The name calling led to rocks and bottles being thrown all because of race. It was clear that her life purpose was to be one of helping educate those who were abusive and those being abused.
Over the years she has enjoyed volunteer work with the American Red Cross, Office Administrator raising funds for college age blind students with the National Federation of the Blind, mentoring youth at risk, community environmental work and helping the homeless. Her role as Managing Director of My HELP Network Foundation continues her burning passion and commitment to helping all life. Her vision is to have The HELP Consciousness available to the poorest, especially in third world countries.

Raffaele Gorini is our Youth Participation Networker.
Born in the same village as Michelangelo in Florence Italy, he was inspired in his early teens to explore the world. At eighteen years of age, he travels to north Africa, living in a harsh environment with the ancient Amazigh people deep in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
His experience with the Amazigh which is believed to mean “free people” or “noble men,” transforms him from a teenager to a free and noble man. From there he ventures to Spain, France and Northern Europe, travelling and working as a “waiter and washer upper” to pay his way. When he returns home, he feels confined by the limits of his surroundings and takes off to Australia.
While driving in his little minibus across Australia and working on farms, he meets Pan Raja who gives him The HELP Book. Reading the book opens his mind and moves him to dedicate his life to helping others. Raffaele now travels far and wide empowering young people to learn and practice The HELP Process. Raffaele’s vision: “To gather a multi-national team of young men and women who will teach The HELP Process to the youth, enabling them to create a better life for themselves and a better world for all.”
Pan Raja is our Training Officer.
Born into an Indian family in Tanzania, at age seven, Panraja began to have a reoccurring dream of all races joining hands around the earth. By the time he was twelve, the dream revealed a message for humanity, ‘Help Each Other’.
In 1966, violent revolution erupted and his family flee to England. When was thirteen, his mother died of cancer and he became homeless. While living on the street, he bought chalk and walked from place to place writing, “Help Each Other” on sidewalks. After four years of living rough, he joined the Royal Marines and was posted to Condor Commando Base in Scotland. The marines become his family and he excelled within Reconnaissance Troop.
The other marines called him, “Monk”, because he meditated and lived like a monk. While meditating on a remote beach he made a world changing discovery; that his message “Help-Each-Other” was actually a practical process which creates love, unity, harmony and prosperity. He called it The HELP Process and has the vision to gift this message to every person in every nation. Panraja resigned from the Marines, and since then he has taught The HELP Process free of charge to countless people around the world.
