These Numbers Have Faces

I want to thank Executive Director Justin Zoradi for making me aware of the wonderful organization he founded, and Communications Director Jonathan Saur for providing us with such amazing information on this organization.

"These Numbers Have Faces is a Portland, OR based nonprofit organization working in Cape Town, South Africa. These Numbers Have Faces exists to confront generational poverty in South Africa by providing college scholarships for youth in the township of Gugulethu. It is our goal that through education, we can give young people the opportunity to make positive change in their own communities. These Numbers Have Faces isn't about a cause, it's about people.

No matter what the news media tell us, our dear friends in South Africa are not numbers. They are not color coded charts, pie graphs, or economic statistics. These Numbers Have Faces."
