Have you felt called to impact the world on a global level?

This is what Becky Straw felt after traveling the world and witnessing people in need of something: the opportunity to work and thrive. Becky is CEO of The Adventure Project.

“What people want most in the world, whether they’re born into poverty or live in a beautiful suburban community, is the opportunity to work.”

“Having a bold, audacious vision isn’t crazy, it’s necessary.”

“In Africa, right now, 36% of all wells are broken because there are no spare parts, no tools and no trained mechanics who know how to fix them.”

“What if the world took notice of what was really impactful, and really changing people’s lives in developing countries?”

“Positive change exists, and you can be part of that solution”

“You don’t need to be Bill Gates to fund the right work.”
