I loved reading the summary of your first three months — it made me want to do the same and travel in some third world countries. I don’t think it’ll happen any day soon, but for now, I’ll just keep following your journey and cheering for you!
A world where we’d be talking about ways to help homeless families instead of sharing the latest American Idol gossip would be a place where I’d love to live as well. Let’ make it happen!
Some people commented that you have to build an empire in the 1st world and then use it to help the poor. I’m not sure about that. Your social entrepreneur friend could be a different example: he’s not building something in the first world, but right there where the poor are. It’s so much easier to see what is needed in the world when you experience it firsthand.
Thanks for sharing what you experience out there!
