Manicurist Builds School

From our friends at KarmaTube comes this wonderful example of how one person with modest resources can make a difference:

Lidia is not a millionaire. She is not a famous movie star. She does not head a large charity. She is a manicurist from Washington D.C. with big heart and big determination. Lidia is changing lives in Ethiopia (a country with some of the lowest literacy rates in the world) by building an 8-building school system in a rural village. Lidia sold her car and house to fund the project. But as she says, "... it's ok. As long as I'm still kickin', I have a roof over my head, and I'm working, I'm able to work...those things are just things. It's about the children; it's not about me."
