At Live the Give, a new e-retailer of eco-friendly journals, helping end global poverty is the core mission. Company founder and elementary school teacher Najat Murillo of Dallas, Tx., has zeroed in on education as the key to solving this age-old problem. Therefore, 15% of Live the Give sales revenue will be go toward Fund for the Future – an initiative to raise awareness of the vital role education plays in global society.
“I have always wanted to help children around the world enjoy a better quality of life and a more hopeful future,” says Murillo. “I believe the best way to do that is by giving them the opportunity to be in school and by improving the quality of their education. I am determined to spread awareness of the importance of global education and the impact it has on our society.”
International organizations like the U.N. agree that education is a fundamental human right, as well as the most effective way to break generational cycles of poverty. Educated citizens earn more income over their lifetime, which boosts economic growth in entire nations. War and political instability are reduced when more citizens have a quality education and can have an impact on their governments. In terms of societal benefits, education has been shown to promote gender equality and the overall wellbeing of children. Providing a quality education for all children is among the best ways to make a difference in our world for the better. As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
With Live the Give, Murillo is working to make a profound difference in the state of global education. The company will donate 15% of all sales revenue to this worthy cause, and work together with other organizations to spread awareness of this issue.
