I have always been impressed by the quality of these people and their self-assurance when it comes to the western world trying to "help" them improve their lot. They simply don't need it. I am equally impressed by your photo of them.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Good photo. I stayed in the Masai Mara while in Kenya and they had dancers like that. Those people do need help, but the situation is so bad, they can't be. Some go to college same as here and then work for $40. a month. A VCR tape in that country costs $20. When I was told that I started tipping a lot more than I did before.
