Lifting Up The World a glance
A bit of background info
My name is Moussa Diakite. Originally from Mali, West Africa, I am the C.E.O and founder of "Lifting Up the World". In my life, I have been No Stranger to helping people in poverty. After coming to the States and becoming a U.S citizen. In 2012, I visited my Hometown Mali for the 1st time in 11years.
During my visit there, I witness some of the most heartbreaking images I have ever witnessed in my adult life. I witnessed Children no older than 13 years old, in the middle of the night begging.
These children barely had any clothes and were begging total strangers. They were trying to get a couple of coins to get food for their family.
They started telling me about their current living conditions and daily struggles. I was so bothered that I couldn’t sleep the rest of my time in Mali. I then brought them a bag of rice and some groceries.
I also had some friends and family help me package the food and hand it out to the local children. The joy I saw in their eyes made me so happy. It meant the world to me and is part of my motivation to help make a difference.
That’s when I decided to make a change. I couldn’t wait to come back to the states. I was determined to get people involved and help me with my cause.
So I decided to start "lifting up the world". A non-profit organization focused on helping people in poverty. Not only in my country but in the U.S and around the world.
