Helping people to reach economic stability has an enormous effect on a community as a whole. 30% of Bangladesh (150 million people) is below the poverty level. Imagine, what would happen to Bangladesh as a whole if you could substantially cut down the number of people below the poverty line. One person improving the economic abilities means more money in the economy and when many people improve that is a growing vibrant economy for all.
That is why we know that helping people definitely improves them financially, because it is about a community as a whole. We strive to let people know where the opportunities are and to discover which of the opportunities they are qualified for, sometimes that leads them to furthering their education in school or a local trade or small business enterprise. Each individual that raises themselves out of poverty is a heart-warming thing to witness. When that spreads to more people doing the same, it can be a catalyst for amazing changes to a community, the positive results can be replicated to the neighbouring communities and thus having a larger effect.
To do this, we let people know what options are out there. It is sometimes hard for information to be filtered through to disadvantaged communities. If they do not know what options are out there, they cannot take advantage of them. It is imperative that the knowledge be spread. Then we help with finding the right path for each individual; whether it is education, training, or just a little a little cash assistance along with professional advice on good ways to land in a job or to start a small business, we do what we can to help people succeed.
Once someone has the experience of a little success they begin to realize they can succeed. When that spreads out, you have a successful community – vibrant and hopeful for the future. We strive to help people find that optimism for the future thus making a difference to their future generations.
