    Profits With Purpose - Afghanistan

    Profits With Purpose - Afghanistan

    There’s nothing a terrorist fears more than an educated girl. But right now, only 37% of adolescent girls in Afghanistan are literate. And of the 3.5 million children out of school, 85% are girls. This week we’re joined by one of the guys from an incredible company called Combat Flip Flops, co-founded by U.S. special forces members who met in Afghanistan, now creating jobs in war zones - and then turning business proceeds into community good and education in Afghanistan. Meet the Unarmed Forces.

    Seeing Is Believing - Rwanda

    Seeing Is Believing - Rwanda

    Vision is often considered the most solvable health problem in the world. Globally, 1 in 7 people who cannot see well don’t have access to vision care. But the barriers to getting glasses are a lot more complex than meets the eye. One group is creating a world where access to vision is no longer a barrier to human achievement and possibility. Come with us to Rwanda as we talk to a visionary who’s seeing his patients thrive post-genocide.

    Feed A Billion, Save The World - India

    Feed A Billion, Save The World - India

    1 in 4 children don't know where all their meals will come from this week. Hunger leads families and individuals to make desperate decisions. And those who exploit girls use this to their advantage. This week we’re headed to the city of Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, India with Dr. Ambuj (AJ) Jain who founded Feed A Billion – a nonprofit that feeds girls in need all over the world to ensure they can go to school and are protected from early marriage, work and exploitation. In order to meaningfully address the issue of child exploitation, it is essential to trace it to its underlying causes. Listen now to learn how this organization addresses food insecurity on three continents through one meal a day.
