Join the World Without Poverty Yahoo Group.
Just click on the link at the bottom of this section, and you will be able to join the WWP group which will allow you to post messages and to read the messages from other volunteers. There is no obligation, and you can cancel your participation at any time.
The WWP Yahoo Group provides the "Open Source" feature of the WWP programs.
Volunteers communicate initially by posting messages to the group. If you are inspired by another volunteer's ideas and would like to help, simply contact the volunteer and get started. There is no bureaucratic organization to get approval from.
However we ask that you share your experiences, what worked and what didn't work, with the group by posting a report so we can all learn from your experience.
The best ideas and experiences will be added to the WWP web site so that any visitor to the site can see them.
So now it is time for you to take the next step: Join the WWP Yahoo Group and see what we are up to.
We believe you will be inspired by reading what other volunteers are accomplishing.
And if you decide to actively participate and contribute your time, your ideas and/or your money, the experience can truly change your life. You can't stay the same person while doing this work.
Please note that membership in the WWP Yahoo Group must be approved to prevent spammers from posting inappropriate messages. Allow a day or two for approval.
Note: When you click on the link below, you will get the Yahoo Groups sign in page. There, if you already have a Yahoo ID, you will be asked to enter your password, before getting to the worldwithoutpoverty Group
If you don't have a Yahoo ID, you will be asked to create one before you will be able to join the Group. If you have trouble and want help, contact:

If you need further motivation, reflect on the words of Robert Kennedy spoken several generations ago:
"Let no one be discouraged by the belief that there is nothing that one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills---against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence...Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation....
It is from the numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and ignorance."
