The Leap of Faith
This post was written by Margaret Dulaney Balitsaris in honor of Gauthier Dieudonné, the Director of Fonkoze’s extreme poverty programs. It traces her experience visiting families participating in the programs. Margaret was especially struck by the courage the women who decide to join the program show.
“Imagine allowing someone, some organization to enter your life for evaluation. Imagine taking them through your home, peering into corners, sifting through your finances, relationships, gathering all of the information needed to turn your life in a sustainable direction. Bettering your lives and the lives of your children, yes, but how brave you must be to take this first step. Like tensing at the sight of a needle, you understand that it may save your life, but still, you gulp, wince, and then, whew, … begin to breathe again. You do this for your children and your children’s children. You suffer this scrutiny for those you love.”
