Director Statement

MP, the village elder in a small rural community called Inala in Tanzania said it perfectly: "I believe in the dreams of my people." I, too, believe in the dreams of people. The only thing better than a dream is a transformed reality, and that is why we must continue to dream big. As we believe in the future of our dreams, we will see our own lives transformed.
