To quote from the organizers –

What Can One Person Do?

Poverty is not only a pressing issue, it is a complex one. It’s easy to think that there isn’t much
an individual can do. Fortunately this isn’t the case at all. With activities ranging from advocacy and
professional contribution to charity and financing, there is in fact many ways that we can act.

Totally agree.
