The Carter Center
"Ultimately, the work of The Carter Center is about helping people achieve better opportunities and watching hope take root where it languished before."—Jimmy Carter
One of the things we found most interesting is the Centers work in eradicating the Guinea Worm in Africa. In 1986 when the Carter Center began work on this disease, there were over 3.5 million cases, in 2010, there were less than 1800.
If you are ever in the Atlanta area, the Carter Center is worth a visit. If you cannot get to the Center, many of their conversations and programs are webcast live. Take a look at the upcoming schedule and maybe you too will be inspired to help the world.
