"The most profound lesson that I have learned is that the term 'poor' is a grossly inaccurate way to describe the spirit of the people that I've met.

YAO seeks to engage the energy and passion of this generation with sustainable solutions to poverty. We've grown up being aware of the need to make a difference in our local communities, and now, through technology, we have greater access to more information and the ability to create positive change in the wider world."
