Jessica Jackley: Poverty, money– and love

31 May

What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: “they” need “our” help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about how her attitude changed — and how her work with microloans has brought new power to people who live on a few dollars a day.

    A truly inspirational video! I too have experienced a similar guilt and helplessness in regard to the privilieges I have in my life. Jessica’s insights remind me of the wealth of knowledge that lies in the community that we serve. It is up to us to search it out for ourselves and apply it to our endeavors in the future. Straying away from the “giver and beneficiary” relationship can lead to so much hope in the world. To truly promote change, we, like Jessica, must share the care and love within us rather than simply giving the excess change in our wallet.
