A grain of sand, given the right environment, will form a lustrous pearl. Communities scattered throughout the world have given rise to beautiful pearls – people who have grown up in these communities under harsh conditions and are providing others a path out of poverty.  They are resourceful, compassionate and dedicated, and they are leading the way to a better, kinder tomorrow. These people are our Global Pearls. Our job is to serve as a catalyst – unleashing their potential.
