A Better World Canada

A Better World Canada and my involvement with this non profit organization that improves the lives of less fortunate people around the world.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

How easily an international development project can fail and what can make it a success.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

People today need to recognize the opportunities they have in their daily life and cherish the small things. I learned how other people who have next to nothing are still very appreciative and happy for what they have. I also would like to inspire others to believe they can make a difference, because no matter how old or young you might be, you can always put in efforts to make the world a better place.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I know now how lucky I am for everything in my life. People from Kenya or other countries in poverty that A Better World Canada works with go through struggles every day but me on the other hand, will have many chances during my entire life.
