…When we work with the less privileged members of our communities –and we help them reach new heights in their struggle for better lives and for dignity, for independence and freedom. We bring LIFE to humanity! We take humanity to a higher level of its existence and new level of achievement. What could be more noble, more meaningful, more beautiful than being part of this work for humanity! –Ms. Evelyn Balais-Serrano
