As we are born into different parts of the world, we experience different tastes of life. Unlike more advantaged groups, disadvantaged people hold an uncertain future, because they are easily abused and exploited. “We don’t have to be rich to give. We don’t have to be the best to do. We don’t have to be free to start.” What matters is this simple question: “Are you willing to share, to see other people happy and have a better future? Or are you afraid to challenge yourself?”. Of course, we will never know if we never start.
