“If we are going to reach the poor people in the villages, we need to train people. We need to give them better skills. Hope: Global a place where people come and they can be trained. I grew up as a refugee kid, hopeless, no hope. People gave me an opportunity, people loved me and cared for me. In every step from the time I was a child I can almost point to you to a place and a time when I saw God’s hand and God used people for where I am until today. God has blessed me to be a blessing and that’s what I want to be a part of.
