  16. 16. PERSONAL CONNECTION <ul><li>Thousands of families are stuck in the poverty cycle with no escape in sight. The children in these families are born into a predestined life. I believe in giving these children a fair chance at a new life. By giving these children a quality education we are opening new doors for them to be equal citizens in their community. By helping the youth overcome their boundaries we can all make a change in the world by eventually eliminating the poverty cycle in Bangladesh and around the world. </li></ul>
