I believe Deborah Ellis is very involved in Women for Women - proceeeds from her YA novel "The Breadwinner" go towards them. They sound like a very worthwhile organization. There's a website (I can't remember it for the life of me) that lists places you can "loan" money to women starting up their own businesses in other countries - at the end of the loan (when the business is up and running) you either get your $ back or can fund another business. It's neat these organizations exist.

The woman in the photograph stands next to a mud hut, two skinny chickens at her feet, dark hair, no shoes, sad eyes.
The photograph goes with a story of the murder in NY of a 16 year-old whose body was found in a woods.
The teen had left his home at age 13. He had been working full-time in a village store sending all his earnings back to his home in Cenral America. He was an illegal immigrant. The woman in the photograph is his mother.
The the local photographer I assigned to take the picture said she was so poor, he went back with a load of groceries to help her.
There's just not enough generous souls to go around, it seems.
