Poverty Needs Not Cripple Permanently!

By: Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. 

Human poverty should not prevent personal development and great achievement in any individual! Today’s world still produces great leaders in varied fields who came from deprived backgrounds.

In many cases, a parent had to sacrifice a great deal in order to motivate the youngster in the right direction, and provide a sound context with adequate tools for sound learning. In the majority of the cases, such efforts are crowned with unbelievable success!

In other instances, an outsider took the loving initiative to encourage, and provide aid for a needy child’s solid, comprehensive advancement in a field corresponding to the youth’s giftedness and passion. As Yale University professor, Miroslav Volf, wisely observed, “wealth doesn’t make us givers; poverty can’t prevent us from being givers.”

With this understanding and conviction, a larger number of visionaries has been empowering certain agencies and institutions specializing in quality education, and offering other vital resources for children who, left to themselves, would inevitably enter a life of laziness or crime, on account of lacking basic instruction, devoid of the right incentives and motivation!

As a result, artists, authors, musicians, scientists, politicians, and honored members of every profession and vocation are now significantly contributing to society, and some of those to the world at large as well. The world is always enriched when such things happen, while offering hope to others still stuck in poverty, malnutrition, and deprived of educational opportunities!

You can easily find a reliable agency, whether in the U.S.A. or elsewhere in the world, making an enormous difference in several places, offering resources which are lifting many fellow humans to greatness, as they become productive citizens of the world, and their lives impact society in varied fields

of endeavor and in manifold ways.

Remember, though, that all alone you can’t do it, but reliable organizations can fulfill this significant mission if they can rely on the consistent support and contributions of those who share their vision.
