Underachieving societies are in our midst, and it takes teamwork to make these societies develop.

Below is a demonstration of how an underachieving society can be transformed into one that flourishes.

Helping underachieving societies is team work.

50 Cent: A kind-hearted man connects to Africa

International Charity: When a rapper empowers society

50 Cent known for his rap worldwide, also has a wonderful heart for serving people. The latter never gets enough exposure, but this great man is doing wonderful things in the world.

He knows children are the future, and thus is investing in their unquestionable potential, by ensuring they have vital needs catered for.

"Raising an underachieving society," is all about empowering societies, and laying a strong foundation for years to come. 50 Cent is giving children a chance to have a bright future.

50 Cent's comments on his new role of International Charity

50 Cent said he was touched by the children he visited in Nairobi, the capitol of Kenya. He said the children were oblivious to their living situation, and showed the same optimistic energy you would see from American kids on the playground.

"They have one meal a day, the same meal every day," he said. "There's nothing there – within their eyes and the way that they interacted with each other – that would indicate that they feel deprived in any way. They are the exact kids that you would see here, and that was so confusing. It made you want to pick them up and take them home with you, but you can't. ... So you have to do something that makes a difference."

Editor's response:

I believe the diaspora are key for the future of Africa. They can inject a lot of capital to improve various economic sectors, help small businesses grow, and uplift youth.

The diaspora have a major role in developing Africa. 50 Cent is a real icon for International Charity and World Empowerment. He is doing a wonderful job.

Katie Davis: A pure heart that empowers the world

Katie Davis: Kisses from Katie

International charity case study: The remarkable story of Katie Davis.

The inspirational story of Katie Davis,

There are wonderful people in this world, the story of Katie Davis is truly remarkable. Katie Davis, a young, benevolent lady has devoted her life to empowering the future leaders and professionals of Uganda. She is an icon of International Charity.

In December of 2006, 18-year-old Katie Davis from Brentwood, Tennessee, traveled to Uganda for the first time. She was immediately captivated with the people and the culture.

In the summer of 2007, Katie returned to Uganda to teach Kindergarten at an orphanage. As she walked the children home, she was shocked to see the sheer number of school-aged children sitting idly on the side of the road or working in the fields. She learned there were very few government-run public schools in Uganda, and none in the area where she was working. Most schools in Uganda are privately operated and therefore require school fees for attendance, making impoverished children unable to afford an education.

God laid it on Katie's heart to start a child sponsorship program, matching orphaned and vulnerable children who are unable to afford schooling with sponsors anywhere in the world. Sponsors pay $300 per year to send one child to school, providing school supplies, 3 hot meals each day, spiritual discipleship, and medical care. Originally planning to have 40 children in the program, Katie had signed up 150 by January 2008. Today the program sponsors over 400 children.

Shortly thereafter, Katie established a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called Amazima Ministries International. The organization seeks to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the people of Uganda who need it most. In the Lugandan language, Amazima means "truth." Also, Katie became a mother for the first time in January of 2008 to three orphaned girls. Read more

The essence of life is to empower and inspire your neighbor. If every person had these traits, there would be more unity in the world, and underachieving societies would become overachieving societies.

Katie is setting a tone for development in Uganda and is a real inspiration to the world.

Katie's journey in her words:

"It's a journey that took me from a ten month commitment to teaching Kindergarten in Uganda to a lifetime commitment of bettering and serving this country."

The book: "Kisses from Katie"

Ubuntu Global Village Foundation:

The foundation cultivates cross-continental and cross-cultural relationship building through global community partnerships, travel and service. Ubuntu means "I am because WE are" and "people are people THROUGH others."

"Together with local and global partners, we host youth food and empowerment outreach programs for children living on the streets of Durban, South Africa."

They got in touch with me, and I think they are doing a wonderful job, as human beings we need each other to sustain success.
