Accenture/Facebook Spending Money to Empower the Less Fortunate

What a great concept! Good job Facebook and Accenture. I much prefer this 'empowering of people' idea to the basic giving of aid that we've been doing for decades. Just like the old proverb says "give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime". While we're at it, maybe we should employ this concept domestically. Instead of giving people money to get by, as in our welfare system, we should be empowering people to build a better life. This has such great potential to improve the financial and social well being of the world. I love it. Come on congress, I'm looking at you!
