If “problems can’t be solved at the same level of thinking that created them” as Einstein advised, then Little World Community Organization should be looked at very closely by those serious about solving the problems of poverty. LWCO isn’t a charity asking for your money in exchange for promises of success. LWCO is an opportunity to creatively join in community with the poor and help them end poverty themselves. It works.

Typically in maturing organizations there will develop a disciplined hierarchy of control. As LWCO has matured the control has moved into the hands of the poor as it has educated them to handle this responsibility. Instead of centralizing, LWCO is decentralizing.

As its founder and chief USA volunteer, I am now getting directions and reports directly from women that were previously without a voice, having little value, and unable to safely leave their homes without escorts and being fully covered from view. Now, all of this has changed for the better. Entire villages have happily changed their views about women and how to find hope.

In the letter to follow first ignore my name, or put in your own name because it could be you. It’s not that hard to be a part. Also, note that conditions in Pakistan in many areas are far harsher than we have been told with starvation closely looming and yet these women have hope and are working hard for a better day. It is very humbling.

If you can hear this: they need your help now. They have learned to fish and to teach others to fish, but their pool is empty. They need your help to develop our web presence, educate others, and help with their marketing efforts.
