What is going on all around the world? 

Have you ever asked yourself this question and ever felt like the challenge to make a positive change was calling for you? 

We believe that practical existing services work to contain poverty issues, not to solve them. Indeed, big organisations receive funding and donations, implement big marketing strategies, but with all the money that they receive, the problems remain the same. How come?

Look into the Red-cross Haiti scandal, for instance. One official quit the group and explained that it was because “agency officials did not seem to have any idea how to spend millions of dollars set aside for housing." $488 millions received in donation and only six houses built in Haiti! 

Maybe money is not the main and only factor necessary to solve the equation of poverty after all! 

Our group is especially focused on the issues of miseducation and poverty in Africa and all the black-African Diasporas and countries worldwide. During our sessions, we will discuss new strategies, have talks, organise activities and travels. 

Whether you already are active in making positive changes to end poverty, injustice and suffering, or you are willing to take up the challenge, meet like minded people, have real discussions on the topic and participate in activities, you are welcome in this group! 

Lastly, here is a quote from Mother Theresa to reflect on: “Poverty is not made by God; it is created by you and me when we don’t share what we have”. 

Welcome on board!
