It's the holistic approach of These Numbers Have Faces that I love. Yes, getting a scholarship is great, but if a student does not have encouragement, support, accountability, or practical life skills, the money is wasted. TNHF understands that. I am completely on board with the mission of the organization and the staff is just the cherry on top. I work with genuinely caring, supportive individuals. We are driven towards a common goal and believe in working together to accomplish our best work. It is this community effort that allows us to effectively impact South Africa. These Numbers Have Faces is truly the embodiment of the quote by Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." It's a blessing to be a part of that small group.

how it has caused me to refocus and re-prioritize my own life. A life well lived is one that serves others.
