Café Impact, an online hub for witty, thought-provoking videos featuring no-crap conversations between host Jonathan Lewis and a cohort of successful social change agents, recently added a shout-out to The #GlobalPOV Project on its website:

The #GlobalPOV Project (UC Blum Center for Developing Economies) makes the smartest and most entertaining videos about poverty on the Internet.

For more on Lewis, visit his website; read his latest thoughts at The Huffington Post; and get to watching those Café Impact videos already! (If you’re as talented, ambitious and utterly flawed as we, here’s a video recommendation to get you started.)
