17 year old changing the world and follow up from yesterdays micro finance story

A Teen in Mozambique--Clinton Global Initiative 2007 This is an incredible story of a 17 year old in Massachusetts who is on a campaign to change the world. He's also the kind of kid who, when he was 13, instructed friends and family to donate money to a nongovernment organization called VillageReach, in lieu of bar mitzvah gifts.

I'll let you read the story (here) but the point i want to make is. One person can change the world; in this case a teenager.

1. get over yourself
2. give of yourself
3. go beyond yourself
4. leave a legacy

Mrs. Lun Chanthy, age 23, is a housewife who takes care of her two young children. Her husband works as a vehicle tire repairman. In order to expand his business and meet customer demand, she would like to borrow $1,000 to purchase an air compressor to pump tires and invest in a stock of tires to sell to his customers.

They will use the extra income to continue to invest in the growth of the business and to save money for their children’s education.
