Hope: GPS 2013

On Monday, June 24th, 2013, Allowance for Good launched its second annual Global Philanthropy Summit, which brings together a catalytic group of youth for intensive gatherings to advance personal understanding in and encourage collective action toward global education equity.

Anisa reflects on the entire GPS experience.

My experience with AfG this week was absolutely amazing. I learned so much about different organizations, what a philanthropist is, and overall I learned how to make a difference in the world. It was really fun to go meet different organizations and hear their stories about what they are trying to accomplish. The best part was giving back to the HOPE School Children in Zambia, raising money and collecting dental hygiene supplies etc. This program does really make you look differently at what you have and what others don't have, and how you have the power to change that. After being at this program, it really makes me want to get more involved and I would totally recommend everyone to do the same because it's life changing, not just for those you're helping, but for yourself as well.
