4. Strategy

During their trip around the world, Ben and Linda want to help people living in poverty. It often happens that people invite them and receive them hospitably. People they meet by chance, who share food and drinks with them, offer shelter, introduce them to family and community. People who want to know where they come from and where they are going to. People with their own needs, concerns, wishes and dreams.

Ben and Linda want to help the people they meet, if needed, in any way. Perhaps they can even make a dream come true.
