Friday night, an attacker drove his car into the crowd injuring the innocent and the van also hit the Watchmen Training Center.  With two large windows completely shattered. The attacker also hit another vehicle before he ran off into the night.

Help us fix the damages caused by the attacker and marketing campaign to catch the attacker.

Watchmen Training Center is where we provide free training and guidance to kids and young adults on stop bullying, self-confidence and character building, self-defense, martial art, crime prevention, anti-violent-drug-crimes, and how to build a better society and safer community.

The violent attack validates our purposes and reminds us why Watchmen was created and how important our work toward a safer community.

What the community say about us.

Please help us replace our windows before the snow come.

THE HISTORY OF THE WATCHMEN NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION


My name is LOKUS THE NGO, I created Watchmen to watch over humanity. I dedicated my life to build a better society and a safer community by bringing peace, end suffering and to ensure the continuing of life on earth. I take on the responsibility to teach our youth the way of the Watchmen so one day they will lead mankind to a better future.

WHO ARE WE?

ABOUT US:
Watchmen is a non-profit organization in Des Moines, IA. Watchmen was created to watch over humanity by supporting, protecting, and preserving life. Currently, help youth stand up for themselves and others.  We want youth to think about their future by helping them find purposes in life, goals, and what they want to achieve.

We have seen enough kids heading in the wrong direction and getting involved in drugs, gangs, violence, theft, and vandalism because they are under bad influences and having no purpose, no goals, and no vision in life.

Video about Watchmen from the beginning

We teach youth the way of the Watchmen so they can learn to collaborate with each other, to watch out for one another, to be a positive influence in our community, to act with reason when there is something wrong, to not pretend or ignore things because it’s none of their business.


WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING?
June 2017, I used my lifesaving to build and run a Watchmen Training Center, provide FREE guidance and training to youth in stop bullying,  build self-confidence, self-defense, martial art, conflict resolution, character building, and anti crimes, violent, and drug.


With a vision, a lot of guts and determination I alone get it started, then slowly I was fortunate to find enough volunteers to help out.  Together, we teach youth to stop bullying, self-discipline, increase self-esteem, and character building by learning the way of the Watchmen. Stand up for what is right and for each other. Take action when there is something wrong, don’t be a bystander.


OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
We have over 300 underprivileged kids signed up in the last 18 months, free of charge. I funded over 95% of the operation myself. We occasionally have some support from the community. I will make sure Watchmen a successful project at all cost.


Recently, we partner up with the Des Moines Public School. We are now running a Watchmen club inside the public school. They wanted the Watchmen to help discipline their kids and focus on stop bullying(1 of 3 students are bullies and 3 of 4 students a victim of bullies, every day 160,000 kid in the nation missed school due to bullying). Helping them teaching youth the way of the Watchmen. We will continue to work on setting up more Watchmen Club in Des Moines Public School in the coming months(we get access to 33,000 students).


But that not all! I see the physical training along with advice/guidance is not enough. We need to support the youth and the community in other aspects as a whole.

WHAT WILL I DO NEXT?
October  2018, I leased another location and now providing food pantry to the community and working on an after-school program at my own expenses.


However, I see that providing food to the community alone is not doing anyone any good for the long term. We can feed them today, tomorrow but every day of their life.? What is the purpose of that? We will never build a strong community if someone comes to take the food and go. There is no connection here.  I don't want to do things with no greater purposes. Feeding the community is only the beginning.  To help people we have to understand the source of the problem why they really need help. 

I wanted to challenge them. The purpose of the food pantry is to bring them in and help them improve their lives. I ’m looking at the long-term gain and a permanent fix. The solution here is to help them find a job-better job, write a better resume, get communication skill, transportation, get computer skill, conflict resolution,  financial education, money management, sourcing, health, a positive attitude, a good mindset… If we can't help them in these areas they will continue to suffer and struggle with their life for a very long time. This will be a long process but we will get there!

I don't believe you can effectively helping the kids when their parent constantly struggles. It's like fixing a high-pressure leaky pipe with duct tape.


Along with the food pantry, I’m planning to have an after-school program such as tutoring services for their kids, and help them apply grants for colleges. I want them to think and plan for their future.

When I was growing up no one was there to offer me any advice. I have no idea of what I was doing for half a decade. I don't want kids to go through life blindly as I did. And I don’t want kids to end up in prison like a lot of my friends and the people I know.

Did you know 1 of 3 American will be arrested by the age of 23? Look at this picture of our youth, 4 of them will likely be in jail for making bad choices in life by the age of 23 unless we're going to do something about it. With that being said, think of the damage they will be unleashed onto our community.

34320158_1541652916888552_r.jpegLook at them, innocent as it may seem, but if we can't influence them to follow the way of the Watchmen 33% of them will end up in jail.

I want to break their mindset from the environment that brought them up. I want to have a chance to influence them and their kids into thinking that there is no limitation to what they can do and do thing positively. Give them the support they need so they can reach their fullest potential.

Follow the way of the Watchmen
What we do, it seems like a lot with no funding and little resources but we will manage to make it work.  Simply because we are building a Watchmen Society with the Watchmen principle that everyone in the Watchmen Community is expected to help each other out. If you don't like to help people you defeated the purpose of the Watchmen. We strive to be the greatest and the strongest organization in the world.


Besides doing supporting the Des Moines community, I have been providing funds to volunteers across the world supplied food to the orphans and street kids in a developing country. Something I'm passionate about. Once Watchmen be self-sustainable, I will have the Watchmen running across the world.

We are now running a food pantry here in Des Moines, IA. It's one step closer to our global mission Watchmen World Food Bank. My small businesses and works are just enough to cover rent and operational expenses for two Watchmen locations.  I work hard and long hours 100+ hours per weeks to maintain my business, work, and the nonprofit. 


I have nothing but a great determination to build a better society and a safer community.


Great thanks to our sponsors for supporting us at our last martial art demonstration.
