Tucker Rossmaessler Aug 21, 2024
ending generational poverty in "garbage dump communities"
Tucker will be speaking about ending generational poverty in "garbage dump communities" around the world.
He is the Director of Engagement  at International Samaritan. 
From intsam.org: "Globally, one out of ten people live on less than $2 a day.
Over 19 million of them turn to garbage dumps to survive.
These dumpsites are dangerous, poorly regulated, and the waste spills into the surrounding communities.
These garbage dump communities are home to refugees, lepers, abuse victims, orphans, and other extraordinarily vulnerable groups.
Due to the lack of opportunities in these communities, building wealth is next to impossible, trapping families in generational poverty."
Tucker belongs to the Rotary club of Ann Arbor.
