I watched a documentary last night on HBO called "A Small Act".  It was about a single woman, Hilde Back, who sent $15 a month to help a child in Kenya pay to go to school.  Education is the only way out of poverty in Kenyan and only the families with money or very smart children with scholarships get to go to high school. The boy she helped went on to graduate from Harvard and works with the UN for Human Rights around the world. He started an organization to pay for children's education by providing scholarships to the brightest students in Kenya and named it the "Hilde Back Foundation" although he had never met the woman who helped him.

While it is true that you cannot change the world one person at a time, if you help one person, you can change their world.
