Overcoming poverty is a demanding endeavor. Because every person matters, it requires continually seeking out people at risk of being left behind. It requires creating and sustaining a partnership where each person is able to develop his or her voice in order to participate freely. For people who were born into the constant crises of extreme poverty, as well as for people who choose to join them in solidarity, it is inevitable that there are times when the courage to move forward is lacking. To continually renew our courage, we strive to sustain the collective will that all of us need in order to move forward together.
