I have to admit that I did not know anything about land rights until I read through this website. I understand the importance of land rights now, and how land rights relates to poverty, starvation, and economic growth that is sustainable. The website is really nice and very readable.

You're already sitting at your computer so please spend slightly less than 15 minutes today by watching a video from Free The Slaves. The website has a lot of options on it for both action and education, and I suspect you'll find something more you will want to do. Modern day slavery is an issue we don't know enough about.

Here is an eye-opener in terms of what you could do if you had $1.00 a day to give away. Women Thrive develops, shapes and advocates for policies that foster economic opportunities for women living in poverty. They believe that women are the key to ending global poverty. or as they say--"When you teach a woman to fish, everybody eats." The $1.00 opportunity here is explained on this page. Simply put, you are going to pledge $1.00 each day for a year by joining the Dollar-A-Day Circle. This is a great website--check it out.
