Knowledge is Power
As I taught a few years ago in a mud hut school in the mountains of Kenya, the children were hungry for knowledge and were like sponges as they listened. I spoke of the amazing power that we gain when we learn and how important it is to go to school. IPF is a great example of an organization that empowers people from around the world, as it gives tremendous knowledge with every project pursued. As Francis Bacon quoted, “Knowledge is power,” I see how much power, which includes strength, might, confidence and ability, that IPF as an organization can actually give to indigenous people around the world.
