Hidden Reason for Poverty

Places where International Justice Mission (IJM)  Serves 

Next week, Pope Francis will come to America.  He is scheduled to talk about the extreme refugee problem and suggest what the  the United States’ part should be in providing for these desperate people fleeing from the horrors of the Middle East.

This is another organization who is working to eradicate extreme poverty working for the same result but with a slightly different approach.  The video below was filmed at the TED meeting in Canada last spring.  TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading international  ideas , usually in short powerful talks.

Gary Haugen is an civil rights attorney and the founder of International Justice Mission.

Have you heard of IJM before?  What do you think of their approach in working to  end extreme poverty?

I am thrilled that in India, known for horrible in justice of  slavery abuses, there are thousands of policemen already trained and working with IJM representatives. IJM only goes into countries where they are invited by the authorities to train, guide and  stop the “Everyday violence that rages on in many places on the earth.”

    Brilliant by Gary Haugen, he did brilliant as a man. The things he seen you can’t describe. He says he wishes the World could see what he did…The facts are, we can if we choose. What moved Gary to tears as he moved around the World he wishes we can see. But what he is saying is “GO LOOK” They are hard to see and view, they make me cry, but then they make me act, write and help. Gary is a man I do admire. If I could so what he has done I would. I would leave Scotland to help. All I can do is share these stories in my blog…Like you did here Anne…You and I (There are more) do try, you are trying RIGHT HERE. I want the HARD truth to be told. Charity money is being stolen, IJM doesn’t score well. I love TedTalks. And we MUST act, we must open our minds and hearts to WHY this is happening. Made me cry a little this video. But the tears must end and we must help, help like you do every Monday in a food pantry. Brilliant blog Anne…Reblogging..

      That is all I am saying here. 99% of people in IJM will be good people. Sadly in every money making detail, we have greed. You can’t deny that. Greed exists..
