Poverty Level  -  It Can Go Down!

Hello and there is hope - in the world for reducing Poverty!

I'm no expert on poverty - but living on less than a dollar and a quarter a day is insane!

Yet if you look at the video and links at the bottom of this article - you'll see it is going down.

I love a good story - especially one that gives you some hope. You can find many a good story if you know where to look for them, most of them are NOT on the news etc. So stop looking there!

I'll tell you several good stories -

How about a man who when he was a young decided to get some money together and drill a well in Africa - he did so and when he was done - the school and community, that drilled the well in - sent him many letters and asked he to come there for dedication - honor celebration - he went there but what happened - changed his life forever - because he got to see first hand how is - to live with out clean water! This well - not only saves lives, prevented deaths - for the village, school, and community - it helped them live longer and better lives - just by have clean drinking water!

So he devoted his life - to this cause and has helped and saved many peoples lives.

Another man - created cheaper wheel chairs, and by doing so - has helped people - in many countries live better lives.

One company - and there are several - who use groups of people, with medical staffs - give immunizations - to little children preventing many serious diseases, and vary young deaths.

Others help teach young mothers better hygiene - so infants live longer -

Some work on small loans so woman can build small businesses and live better -

Yet others work on eye surgeries and glasses, so people can see and be more productive.

I know a group - that has loans - they give to young men and woman so they can get into trades, and get out of poverty - after they go through the schooling and get into the career - they pay the loans back - this in turn is used again to repeat the same process to some one else -

I'll end with a last story - a couple who wanted to adopt a girl in Hattie - had to fly down into another country to get there - because of a great earth quake, but they were helped by others, to save many starving infants, and also helped by another group, to get pass ports to 23 infants who - had parents waiting in Miami -

They also had the help of God too - all this was done while they got their future daughter back to the states.

Plus they had two or three helicopters - which were stripped out of chairs - so they could pack the infants into them - as tight as possible while they flew into an UN place, where a plane flew them into Miami -

None of which would have happened, with out the grace and blessings of God - plus some great resources that came together.

Look for the good and work for the good - bless others as you do so -

This world needs great leaders and givers!

Now for the site and movie - on Following the Money!

Make this holiday season one of the best in your life time.

Also see the ted move!

Go out and get involved in an organization that is changing the world for the better!

Hey Roger, you're right. If we all did just a little, poverty levels would go down. I liked the first story because so many have never been outside their comfort zones and have no idea what living in poverty is really like. Keep encouraging everyone you can for blessed are the peacemakers.
