Global Grassroots 2011

working with Abitangirabandi (Global Grassroots teams). They are just ordinary people, but they do extraordinary service for the community and people in need. I like the way we start with a person’s own idea, do research about it, and turn it into a project that is important to society. I also like to do the practices for consciousness that I learned from Global Grassroots. It helps me to make great decisions in my life.

As time goes on I realize that doing this internship is one of the great decisions I have ever made in my life. Hence I can proudly stand and say that my future is assured, because I don’t think I would have been who I am today if I didn’t work with Global Grassroots. Look around. What are the issues faced by your community? What is your contribution to solve them?

I’ve come to realize that the community needs us, and there is always time to do things we are passionate about, no matter your age, where you are from, your time and financial limits, or any other excuse that we used to give to ourselves. We are able to do something big or small. It is a golden opportunity to work with this amazing organization! I am grateful to be part of the Global Grassroots family. I judge thoughtful whoever donates to this organization, and I take this advantage to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who participates in the success of Global Grassroots. Our joined effort can bring hope to the hopeless.

Thank you for taking the time of reading this note. I hope it adds something good in your daily life.

All the best,

Josiane Isingizwe
