In the short time I’ve been working here, Witness has changed my life forever. It has opened my eyes to issues going on in the world that I was previously unaware of and allows me to combine two of my passions, film and encouraging change. Never before have I been surrounded by so many people who genuinely want to help make the world a better place and are so enthusiastic about their work.
Even after having her most basic human right to be treated like a human being taken away, Anne Frank still had enough faith in humanity to write, “In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery and death.” I never understood how anyone who experienced that much pain and sadness could ever believe in mankind again, and then I joined Witness. Just one day at Witness made me see what Anne saw, to believe that we still have a chance, and a responsibility, to change the world and make it a better more peaceful place for EVERY human being.
Please help WITNESS in their effort to change the world so that one day everyone can say, “I believe that people are really good at heart.”
