Bill?s journey began in 2000, when he took a trip to Bangladesh and saw not only the incredible poverty of the area, but also a different way of alleviating that poverty. Joanna?s journey similarly began with an encounter with some of the world?s most extreme poverty in the fall of 2005. Both Joanna and Bill interacted with businesses that had a different idea of how to help the poor. Rather than just giving them a handout, these businesses train people to make a living for themselves. This provides both a sustainable income and the restoration of dignity for these people. Instead of becoming overwhelmed by the enormity of this problem and the extremity of this poverty, Bill and Joanna chose to do something about it. They realized a better way to help these people. A better way to provide a better life. You too can join their efforts. Visit our other web pages to learn how you too can change people?s lives.
