“The Poverty Action Conference is extremely valuable in three respects:  One, students with powerful learnings from overseas projects can and do share them with peers.  Two, students who design and operate the event itself acquire organizational and leadership skills.  Three, students learn from invited experts.  Probably most valuable, the entire conference is bristling with enthusiasm, hope and energy.  Inspiring!”  – Jonathan Lewis (founder, iOnPoverty)
