Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
― Denis Waitley (via psych-quotes)

"Midwives are the unsung heroes of maternal and newborn health. They can prevent about two thirds of deaths among women and newborns. And midwives deliver much more than babies: They are the connective tissue for communities, helping women and girls care for their health, from family planning all the way through the postpartum period."

––United Nations Population Fund

Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…
― Wilferd Peterson (via psych-quotes)

You have had a dream for so many years. Let today be the day you make a plan for it. Just think about how much more likely you are to hit your target when you finally aim at it.

Dramatic photos capture the rapid decline of a single Detroit block

It’s a heartbreaking story told in just six pictures.

After a fire destroyed nine houses on one block of Garland Street in Detroit, the Detroit News looked back to tell the block’s story. While their reporting went back nearly a century, the images only need to go back seven years to make an impact.

Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.

Cocoa Farmers in Ivory Coast Taste Chocolate for the First Time.

Despite the Ivory Coast being the largest exporter of cocoa in the world, many of the farmers who cultivate the cocoa beans that are the main ingredient in one of the world’s best loved treats, chocolate, rarely see the fruit of their labor. The industry is also marred by child labour.

As the narrator so aptly puts it, the cocoa is a mutli-billion dollar industry that divides the world into two groups  - the gluttons and the beggars.

Whilst large corporations like Nestle and Cadbury benefit greatly from this trade, those who sit at the bottom of the totem pole are the exploited farmers who are the victims of unfair trade and labour policies. And, as this video demonstrates, some of the farmers have never had the opportunity to taste the end product that their crops are used for.
