"If we can reach 100millions of the poorest families in the next five years, we'll be laying down the foundation to create a poverty free world. My fondest dream is that, someday our next generations, our children and grandchildren will go to the museums to see what poverty was like because there will no longer be."
— Mohammed Yunus
