An issue too large to ignore

Sometimes life leads you www.dream-trading.co.za to far flung places and puts you in positions that you never dreamed. When you follow the rabbit hole and embrace it with both arms you might never realise it how it might change your life. Mark’s simple and personal story is beautifully expressed from a guy who just wanted to do the right thing. Mark discovered something that could at the very least change people’s lives when he started an organisation called ‘We Can’t Wait’.
After several years working as a travel writer and then establishing his own business, Mark found himself as a board member for a company…in India. During one of the frequent trips that he made from his home in Melbourne he un-ravelled an issue too large to ignore. Some years later Mark discovered that the best job he has ever had doesn’t pay a cent but may just save lives.

No water.

No toilet.
