Remittances may well be the best single way to foment development.
— Nancy Birdsall, president of the Center for Global Development

 I found this great article the other day from the New York Times.  It advocates for the power of remittances and the role they play in global development.  The Building Roots Project is focused on channeling remittances as a way to further development overseas.  The reduction in fees for global money transfers is critical to helping reduce our project costs and use those funds to give back to the local community.
