Humility when Tensions are High (As Featured in The Cry)

Last fall, Bolivia experienced significant political instability throughout the country and in areas where our WMF staff reside. Some community members evacuated as we experienced weeks of national protests, blockades and riots regarding socialist president Evo Morales and his continuance of power for an unconstitutional 4th term. Chaos and division grew as protests became increasingly […]

A Complex Simplicity (As Featured in The Cry)

Indeed, “peace” is commonly highlighted as a […]

Service by Chasing after the Lost Sheep

Growing up as a child in Sierra Leone, I always had in mind that I would love to work for an organization that works with children and youth.
