1 year ago.

1 year ago I had no idea what poverty was actually like. 
1 year ago I had never eaten meat without knowing exactly what kind of meat it was. 
1 year ago I had never bought snacks off the top of someone's head. 
1 year ago I had no idea mothers could throw away their babies for a simple deformity. 
1 year ago I had no idea there were places in the world without adequate healthcare. 
1 year ago I had never seen a man carry a refrigerator on his head. 
1 year ago I didn't know where all the used clothes, cars and toys go when no one else wants them.  
1 year ago I thought I knew who I was and what the world was about. 


1 year ago I had never been to Africa.
