Eric’s story: What makes life meaningful?

Each of our lives is one story comprised of many. The stories of our families, the stories of our communities, the stories of our circumstances and perhaps most importantly, the stories whispered to our hearts.

Fathers in poverty: Fighting for their families in big and small ways

If the life of a father had a soundtrack, “Somebody’s Watching Me” would be on it. The life of a father is an observed life. Little eyes watch and remember the things you do—big or small. You get a laugh at the cute ways your everyday habits are mimicked. Or you chuckle at a repeated […]

How child labour destroys childhood joy

The sound of children laughing and shrieking as they jump through front lawn sprinklers while their bare feet run freely through freshly cut blades of grass.

Martin’s story: A life of service and giving back

One of the beautiful things about children is their pure and contagious joy. Their ability to see goodness and experience happiness in the small, seemingly insignificant things around them.

Period privilege and empowering girls to bleed with dignity

Ladies, what’s your day like when you’re on your period?
