    So how do we help Sera and her family get back on their feet. Is there a fund or website we can donate to to help this family out?

    Great article and moving video. Understanding that a quality education is the key to helping the next generation stay out of poverty is a great first step. I would be interested to know your thoughts about the next step people can take to in their communities? Would you have awareness meetings - introducing the topic to the local community and spurring their support? Or other options?

    Sera is certainly one of the most thoughtful, articulate 11-year-olds out there... just sayin'.

      Agreed. It's so sad when she says, "This is not the American Dream."
