The Value Revelation

26 Apr

I think  the 19th century British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, hit the nail on the head when he said;

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.” 

I felt these exact sentiments after volunteering for two months in Cambodia at ACODO orphanage. The ticket for a better future in the developing world lies in education. Don’t get me wrong, money helps, but the real transformational power of any sort of “aid” lies in the transference and acquisition of knowledge.
