On the eve of a holiday where gratitude is the theme, Jenna speaks with Troy Anderson, founder and International Director of Speak Up For The Poor, an organization that sponsors the education of 1,560 girls in 35 villages and urban communities in the Khulna area of western Bangladesh. These girls are predominantly Dalits, descendants of the Hindu untouchables, or very poor Muslim girls. They are among the poorest and most marginalized people in an already impoverished country and without intervention can suffer unimaginable fates.  

In this episode, we discuss the founding of Speak Up, the great advocacy and activism work they've been able to accomplish over the years and Jenna shares her experience of being a long-time sponsor of students within their GEP program. 

A note from Jenna:

In expanding our content to humanitarian issues and ways to help, I hope that we as movement professionals remember that we are humans first, teachers second and when we pool our resources together, we can create great impact across the world.
