They’ve watched their communities fall apart.
It’s time to put an end to poverty. But it’s not going to be easy. The uphill battle starts with us. We need to be the change that we want to see in the world. We need to stand up and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. We need to demand better from our leaders and ourselves.
