Vision For LIG Global

"It is very rewarding to help others; I love evaluating the needs of different areas or people and then utilizing our resources to fulfill those needs. Life truly can be great through service. We help others but get so much back in return - a feeling of self worth and of making the world a better place. I also enjoy meeting the volunteers: different people from different walks of life. Each has enriched my understanding of who I am, who I can be and who we all can be to each other. Together we can be the change we wish to see in the world."
