The Genius Planet Foundation (GPF) has established in 2020 to support, help, and alleviate the suffering of members affected by natural disasters (i.e., earthquakes, pandemic, tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires); human made disasters (i.e., chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear (CBRN) accidents/attacks, biological weapon spills, etc.); destruction/aftermath of major protest; and engineering and technology education initiative including research endeavor.
The foundation is created to innovate and make it easy to help others in need rapidly, effectively, and efficiently.
This foundation has integrity and transparency, and is built to fill a gap identified by many branches in the face of the disasters few years, including the wildfires that ravaged northern and southern California, as well as the hurricanes that swept through South Texas, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Florida Keys including worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, major riots affecting innocent people, and unintentional/intentional explosions (i.e., Beirut explosion 2020). California is also facing potential major earthquakes that could ravage critical infrastructures, natural resources and increase death tolls and cause public injuries.
People on the teams will acquire disaster relief training from charitable organizations and government agencies, including the American Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The foundation also will provide temporary shelter for survivors, reconstruction/rehabilitation of affected infrastructures, and financial support through grants.
