I recently spent a year traveling through third world countries and saw poverty first hand. I learned a smattering of a dozen local languages and in the process made many wonderful friends and learned (in their own words) how much a few hundred dollar loan can do. It can be the difference between sending their children to school or putting their child to work in the rice fields and I believe in giving everyone a chance.
I'm a software engineer, entrepreneur, world traveler, and hobbyist photographer. I love traveling to villages, meeting locals, learning the local languages, making new friends, and taking their photos.
