Why We’re Here
Espoir Chiapas is a movement established in France with an ultimate goal to fight poverty and injustice.
Poverty and Injustice are not only occurring in France. All you need to do is to look outside your car window the next time you drive to work. Poverty and injustice is everywhere. In fact, it can be in our very own home. The big question is what do we do about it?
For sure, we cannot solve the humongous problem of poverty all over the world, but perhaps in our own little way, in this small spot online, we can provide a spark of hope. We don’t aim to expose the negativity behind these problems then this site would be a negative one rather than positive. We aim to highlight the positive actions we can do to either survive or win over these, regardless of where we are.
“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” – Nelson Mandela
