Cuso places adults of all ages who have the hands-on know-how and perspectives needed to help organizations working to overcome poverty.
"We so often feel powerless to do anything about the many problems in the world around us. We are so often left to wonder whether one person can possibly make a difference. Mother Teresa said yes we can. Her life was resounding proof that it is possible."
- Craig Kielburger
Together, a better world is possible.
