"Life in the Peace Corps will not be easy. There will be no salary and allowances will be at a level sufficient only to maintain health and meet basic needs. Men and women will be expected to work and live alongside the nationals of the country in which they are stationed—doing the same work, eating the same food, talking the same language. But if the life will not be easy, it will be rich and satisfying. For every young American who participates in the Peace Corps—who works in a foreign land—will know that he or she is sharing in the great common task of bringing to man that decent way of life which is the foundation of freedom and a condition of peace."

-President John F. Kennedy

A winning investment

Hello all. I have been in touch with the founder of this brand new company called Watch Me Go. Here in Ghana and across Africa, many students can't afford to go to high school and escape the cycle of poverty. This website - via a cool platform - allows you to pick from several 8th grade girls in Kenya who need money to be able to attend high school. This isn't your typical "donating to the third-world thing;" it's interactive, easy, and fun so if you want to check it out, here is the website.
