Anybody involved in a social cause, to whatever degree, has most likely asked the question, am I really making a difference?
Trust us, we have asked ourselves that question countless times. Issues of poverty and empowerment are complex ones; there is no one trick fix. There are many people working hard to address the issue, but does any of it make a difference.
One thing we know is that changing lives is rarely a group experience; rather, lives are changed one at a time.
A little less than half the people on Earth live in poverty. Which means, if everybody in the world could help just ONE person out of poverty, we could end the issue altogether. This may seem to be an oversimplification, but our belief is that each of us has the capacity to make an important difference.
By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.
