First, small things can make a big impact, like making sure a child has the proper uniform for kindergarten so they start strong in school. That changes their life forever.
Second, tenacity is more important than having the right answers. Things will always need to be shifted and changed, but we’ll only do those things when we are fully committed to never giving up.

And finally, be smart enough to recognize that you don’t have all the right answers and you need to educate yourself. Jody mentions “When Helping Hurts” and the Chalmer’s Center. These resources and others are critical to making a positive impact with those in extreme poverty around the world.
