Altruists International owes a debt to the countless millions who have made its existence possible. We use electricity, computers, web hosting, telecommunications, the English and Bengali languages and writing systems and many other technologies on a daily basis. Some of our members donate a lot of their time, only possible because we live in such a richly provided world where they don't have to struggle to survive. None of this happened by chance but was developed by innumerable fine minds and kind hearts out there. We acknowledge our debt to them all.
