GWP Looks to Pope Francis's Model of Courage Serving Women and the Poor

“During Holy Week and throughout the Easter season, we are called to remember the life of Jesus, and to contemplate the courage of those who stood in solidarity with him, including his mother Mary. According to Pope Francis, “Whenever we look to Mary, we come to believe once again in the revolutionary nature of love and tenderness.” (APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION EVANGELII GAUDIUM, November 2013) Photo by Tom Gomez/Reuters/Londoy

Ecology and Development Project Recognizes Mandela's Interests in Sustainability

The Ecology and Development Project expresses deep respect for the work of Nelson Mandela to improve the sustainability of South Africa through his legislative accomplishments. Under his presidency, South Africans experienced major changes in the quality of their lives as millions accessed telephone lines, the electricity grid, and clean sources of water.
