We have all have heard the saying that to give people fish, you create dependency but to give them a fishing rod and teach them to fish, you change their lives. We believe that the poor already know how to fish. What they lack is access to the pond.
Most people, given the choice, would want a better life. Dependency works for a short time but ultimately most of us want to stand on our own. Our foundation wants to elevate a quality of life to the poorest and most vulnerable by using their own skills and abilities, never losing sight of the dignity and respect of the person and their rights.
