India: Mamta Godial: Working for the Rural Upliftment Areas: "Rural development necessitates a constant reorientation and adaptation of traditional beliefs, practices, and institutions to embrace a rising corpus of scientific knowledge and technologies to improve people's quality of life and welfare. Only through the active participation of the people at all stages of decision-making can modernization be appropriately dealt with. It is now widely accepted that rural development should be seen as a change process that the people or the target group bring about and sustain. People must be organized and empowered to participate in the development process for this to occur."

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation would like to thank all of our donors and volunteers who continue to support GGAF. Our ambassadors are truly doing inspirational work and we very much appreciate the work each and every one of you do to help those in need.
It's with your help that we are able to respond to tragedies such as the fire that took place in the Bronx, NY, taking the lives of 17 people; eight of which were children. This tragic fire has displaced many families and thanks to Dr. Ameena Ali and her organization FIGHR, who started a fundraiser to help these families and working with GGAF to help receive the in-kind donations of necessities for children and adults we were able to send.
Let's keep being the "Change We Want to See!"
Also, a special shoutout to Chrissy Sykes, a wonderful colleague and friend, who has been there in the time of need for many of us. Her work on the magazine this month was endless. Thank you, Chrissy for your support during this past month and always. #GGAFamily #GGATeamwork. -Sincerely, Lisa Jones
