This Month: Opportunity
Change happens when people seize opportunities—and opportunities open up when people feel a calling to do something great with what comes before them. This month, TakePart World will spotlight the incredible people and organizations who are stepping up in myriad ways, whether dedicating their careers to helping others or finding small, creative ways to support communities in need. From a doctor who has worked in 10 different countries to a 22-year-old woman who bought a ticket to Haiti and started a nonprofit, we hope to bring attention to the quiet yet amazing ways things are taking shape all around us.
These stories are part of an ongoing series we are producing about the dedicated people around the world working to implement and sustain change on the ground—the individuals, organizations, and officials who made a difference.
