Starting 2014 on a High Note!

By ASEM -

Thank You Crocodile Baby

It’s officially 2014!

Just like the rest of humanity and the rest of the world, after all the challenges and hurdles we’ve all had to face and overcome here at ASEM in the past year – what with the structural and financial losses resulting from devastating floods and typhoons that hit Mozambique and much of Africa, here we are again, looking ahead and bravely stepping forward into the new year.

And the keyword here is “overcome” – 2013 has been a year of difficulties, yes, but it was also a year of accomplishments as we overcame each obstacle and tackled each new hurdle that came our way.

In looking back at 2013, we’d like to share a nice little article called “5 Reasons Why 2013 Was The Best Year In Human History”.

Poverty continues its decline, along with all forms of discrimination (racism, sexism, etc.), and life expectancy is on the rise. Things are getting better globally. And we all know that many factors contribute to this progress; but at the very roots, you will find how education and the willingness of men and women to help one another are the two most compelling forces that move humanity forward.

We take inspiration from little things like these. We focus on the good things that come out of the joyful, and even out of the tragic in life. For truly, the indomitable human spirit, the inherent goodness and love for charity in each one of us shines more brightly in the darkest of days...
