The violence, inequality and injustice that exists in our world right now can feel insurmountable.

One thing that always gives me strength and hope is recognizing that, amidst the pain and challenge of our times, there are legions of remarkable human beings who are actively working to create a better world.

Not only for themselves, or for a specific religious or political ideology, but for all of humanity.

Specifically, for the billions (yes, with a b) of overlooked, forgotten and often marginalized populations. Their important stories rarely make headlines or garner the support of international leaders.

But as my guest today wisely said, “You don’t have to accept the world for what it is, but you can mold it into what you think it could be.”

Each of us has the power to use our lives to lift others up. Leila Janah, founder of Sama Group, is a living demonstration of that. Listen in as we talk about the transformative impact of dignified work and how technology can be leveraged to make our world a more equitable and just place for all.

As I shared in today’s show, Martha’s story of how her life has transformed through her connection with Samasource is a must watch.

During times of pain and conflict, we must focus our hearts, minds and actions on what we can do, instead of what we can’t.

Now, Leila and I would love to hear from you.

From the richness of Sama’s work, what’s the single biggest insight you’re taking away from this conversation? What action does that inspire you to take towards creating a more prosperous and just world for all?
