Launchpad’s Mission: donorsee.com/project/680 We want to empower Esther to live her life free of sickness (HIV). We want to employ her to run our new Chicken Farm, so that she can not only provide for her own medication and needs, but also provide a home and family setting for her children and some of our orphans. It is important they have a mother figure in their lives and as much normality as possible to achieve their best. We need your help to do this.
About the Guest: Gret Glyer is the Founder of DonorSee, an app that equips change makers (i.e. you) with the ability to give directly and effectively to fight extreme poverty. From 2013 to 2016, Gret lived with the world’s poorest in Africa, where he built more than 100 houses for the homeless, and famously crowdfunded $100,000 to build a huge girls’ school in rural Malawi. Gret has been featured in USA Today, National Review and the Huffington Post. He speaks regularly on charity, poverty alleviation and the third-world.
