To show how connected we all are in the fight to end poverty, Mama Hope brings Africans and Americans together to cover Paul Simon's "Call Me Al."
The Africa-based organization's "Stop the Pity, Unlock the Potential" campaign aims to tell "the story of connection instead of contrast and potential instead of poverty," according to the nonprofit's website. "When the pity stops, the potential can be unlocked...[This video] sets out to show the energy...of Africa and the interconnectedness we share."
Mama Hope has completed projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, and Uganda, impacting an estimated 76,000 lives, the website reports.
