Title: S2 EP15 | Ending poverty, Empowering Women and Girls, and One World with Heather Shapter

As a young girl, Heather Shapter had a dream of ending poverty.  She started her first charity at age 17.  She is now the Executive Director of Crossroads International, a 65-year-old organization that fights for the rights of girls and women.

This organization works with local partners to empower and educate girls and women.  They are advocates for human rights and are impacting the culture, laws and futures of these people.  They work in a way that the communities are educated and not threatened in order to create lasting change.

Heather's story is truly inspiring, courageous, and incredible.  Her vision of ending poverty has driven her path in life - through the corporate world, entrepreneurship, and now to the not-for-profit world.  She is a true visionary and is looking for people who are also called to make a difference.

If you have ever had any of the following: 
- a dream of ending poverty
- a call to volunteer abroad or in your community, 
- an interest in learning about diverse cultures
- an interest in making a contribution to others in need
- an interest in being an advocate or donating time or money

Thank you, Heather and Crossroads International for the amazing work you are doing in the world.
