Dr. Carolyne Fuqua, along with her late husband, Harvey Fuqua, founded The Foundation for the S.T.A.R.S. (Souls Taking Action Reaching Souls), a nonprofit organization that addresses some of the difficulties that plague underprivileged youth in the inner-cities of America. Under the S.T.A.R.S. umbrella, they created The From Me to We Foundation to expand the mission to youth in developing countries, and the S.T.A.R.S. (Singers Taking Action Reaching Souls), an international vocal ensemble, whose sole purpose is to uplift the planet through song. Dr. Carolyne has also been instrumental in the Adopt-A-Village Program in Egypt, engaged in soul supporting work in Begoro Village in Ghana, and participated in a discourse with prime ministers, ambassadors, and members of Parliament on future humanitarian efforts in Uganda.

She created the F.L.O.W.E.R.S., (The Formidable Love of Women Elegantly Revealing Sisterhood) and the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.S. (The Brotherhood Restoring Oneness to Humanity’s Elegantly Rising Son) organizations for the purpose of bonding and creating a global community of like-minded women and men who are committed to expressing and celebrating Divinity in the Earth plane.
