So I have recently been to the slums of Kenya and just the other day I got back from the Dominican Republic. [I plan to write more about those travel experiences later]. If there is one thing I can emphasize from my recent travels it is that there are people in these places, and all over the world, who need opportunities for work. Think about it: working gives you something to do during the day, it allows you to provide for your self and your family, it empowers you to achieve your goals. Having sustainable work provides hope for individuals and communities, and ultimately provides more jobs that help stop the cycle of poverty.
