This video is the single best "answer" to anyone genuinely interested in the power and impact of our work here at Operation HOPE. This is a Global Dignity sponsored Dignity Day session from 2010 at Edna Brewer Middle School students in Oakland, California. Operation HOPE now has a districtwide partnership with Oakland Public Schools to provide each and every child with both financial dignity education through Banking on Our Future, as well as (upcoming) HOPE Business In A Box!
This is how you change the world. One child, and one school house at a time.
Onward and with HOPE,
