I try to empower the poor, young people, woman, and peasants. We want to help everyone recognize that they have a lot of gifts, even though they are poor, to give to the community by working together as a body. We can grow together as human beings and complete each other, and learn from each other. We can become bridge-builders and peacemakers, for ourselves, for the others, and for the world.
