Celebrating our One Year Anniversary

Instead of focusing on what's wrong with the world, let's celebrate the good. One year in the making and we're still going strong!

On October 8, 2007, Literacy 'n' Poverty Project embarked on an incredible journey. A journey that would bring together our community in hopes of inspiring others to speak out for change and to Take Action.

We made a commitment to make this world a better place for all by offering each of you an outlet to talk about the issues affecting your communities and to share ideas and experiences that can help create lasting change...to make social change a reality.

We've discussed a number of issues like global poverty, health and adult education, highlighted random acts of kindness, and even addressed relevant topics like the Millennium Development Goals and Social Entrepreneurship.

As a result, organizations like Women for Women International, Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs, Third Relief International, CODENI, Infante Sano, and Cultural Canvas Thailand have all been featured on this blog because they have taken an active role in the movement by creating social change in their own way.

Though rest assured, just like these groups our work is far from complete yet we've made great progress over the past twelve months and hope we will continue to do so in the years to come. Each day brings a new challenge that inspires and motivates us to work harder, smarter and more humbly for each of you.

So from this day on, let us celebrate every October 8th as a day of recognition for all who are making a difference. Let's celebrate the day that we (and we mean YOU too!) made a commitment to make social change a reality.

Thank you both for your comments!

Marina, I really appreciate your kind words and hope you continue to be part of this growing organization. We've come a long way and the journey is far from over. You inspire me too and without your membership and continued encouragement we may not have made it this far. Thank you again!
