Notes
  • Whenever I read about courage and fortitude of so called members from vulnerable sections, its inspiring, revolutionary and makes me more committed to purpose of my life. It takes me back to my days where I was a development worker in FARC rebels village in Colombia, an eye-opener to meaning of a life, of being a woman, meaning of sustaining livelihood with no means and resources...nothing but a ray of hope and a will to nurture and feed little one. I went to educate them on means of sustainable livelihood and they paid for my services with abundance of hope and a sensitive heart of a conscientious woman to serve the vulnerable.
    Be part of the journey...start with a small difference - feel the power of true capital and not riches.
