The power of one good idea

Humanity -- what an amazing resource of talents, skills, hopes, and achievements we are! 

Unfortunately opportunity doesn't play out equally around the globe.  Especially in third-world countries, women are expected to be the oxen, the toilers.  But things are not hopeless.

I believe there is a universal Mind who cares about Her creation, who is infinite in resources and practical ideas for transforming lives.  It does take people with vision and unselfish lives to bridge the gap.

This great little video shows how one creative idea can improve the lives of an entire village.  Although it starts out on a gloomy note, stick with it to the joyous conclusion.

Church World Service (CWS) is one organization which finances life-changing projects.

Thank you for posting this! I am going to share it with some folks at church, who were talking tonight about looking at the lessons of the Shunamite woman... what hast thou in thine house? as part of a solution to our current economic challenges. These Kenyan women found just the good idea they needed in their "house".
