Erase Poverty

More than just giving of donations, I believe empowerment is the best way to alleviate poverty.

The solution, I believe is a two-way process. More than just helping the poor with a starting fund or some scholarship, it is instilling in them the belief that they can be successful, that they can be self-reliant that will bring them out of poverty.

I really believe that a better life starts as a determination deep within each person.

I didn't even notice it yesterday. Maybe I was busy thinking of many things or maybe because it's payday

poverty is also a state of mind in my opinion... the more we think that we are hopeless, then we truly are, but if we instill in our minds that there is a brighter beacon of light at the end of the tunnel, then we can work our way to betterment of our lives... very poetic ba? lol


To answer your question, Khone falls is already on the border of cambodia and laos, so its nearer to pakse and really far from vientiane. if you wanna visit is, the easiest way is to go to cambodia muna then make your way up to laos!

@the spool artist,

i really agree with that. since pinoys have a penchant for being reklamadors and negative thinkers, no wonder, pinoys rate themselves negatively.
