EWB, along several of our volunteers, would like Free Range to help us spread this unique project with a wider audience. We feel strongly that a new dialogue and relationship with Africa is critical to building enterprises and livelihoods for entrepreneurial Africans.

This is perhaps one of the aspects I love most about EWB - the degree of creativity and commitment with which its people fight for making a sound impact on all their endeavors.

This project blew my mind when I saw the first installment. There's no better project I've found for changing perspectives of poverty!

Perspectives of Poverty represents the unique approach of this organization, and the motivated, creative leaders who are a part of it.
EWB is my favourite social change organization.
