Personal path to nonprofit work: The opportunity to assist those who desire to change their own life.

Toughest aspect: Getting others to understand and believe in the vision that it is possible to produce honest and compassionate leaders for the developing nation states.

Most surprising aspect: Not too much money is needed to change the plight of the poor people. Yet this kind of common sense is not common after all.

Biggest pain: Having people who want to help, only to realize that they actually want to derive personal financial gains.

Greatest pleasure: Knowing that the poor people are ready and willing to change their lives if someone will come alongside, hold their hands, and walk side-by-side with them to cross the bridge of doubt, fear, hopelessness and degradation.


Best recent moment: Shipping 12,000 books, 100 computers, an acoustic piano and an illuminable globe.

Worst recent moment: The selfishness and greed of a select few who pose as helpers when they actually want to use the organization to serve their own ends.

Dream for another life: Drumming, singing, dancing, eating and sleeping with the abject poor; doing everything possible to walk with them across the bridge of doubt, fear, hopelessness and degradation.
