The World is our Community III: International Aid Show airs on Friday, February 20th, 2015. Watch full episode here: http://www.immensepossibilities.org/ipr-podcasts/the-world-is-still-our-community/
Every community has a few individuals called to take global challenges head-on, without constant reflection on whether or not they are making much of a difference. And it becomes compellingly clear, in a way that inspires those of is learning of their work, that they are.
We’re amazed at the focus and tenacity of neighbors who travel far from home to serve a human community beyond geographic boundaries. This week we meet Frances Dixon of Adopt-a-Village (Guatemala), student Skyla Patton of Rotary Interact and Brook Golling of Semilla Nueva. Plus we check in again with the Himalayan Cataract Project’s Matt Oliva. More great evidence for anyone wondering whether an ordinary person can make a profound difference in the world (hint: the answer starts with ‘y’).
