The Uncultured Project
As I was browsing through the YouTube videos, I came across the Uncultured Project. This is an amazing idea brought forth by a very amazing person.
The Uncultured Project is a funny name given to a simple idea.
It’s not a charity.
It’s not a NGO.
It’s not an attempt at becoming a YouTube celebrity.
It’s just a project by someone who believes that if you want the world to be a better place – you have to do your part.
I got the idea while I was a grad student at Notre Dame. While there, I got to meet Dr. Jeffrey Sachs (author of the book “The End of Poverty”). Shortly after meeting him, I voluntarily withdrew from graduate school (in good standing), bought a camera, grabbed my computer, and flew to Bangladesh to see if I could make a difference.
I call it “The Uncultured Project” because there is no set plan, no formal training, and no goal other than wanting to make as much of a difference as possible. - Shawn, 27
I encourage everyone to checkout the Uncultured Project blog and the Uncultured Project videos, such as the one below, which is the first of a series. Also if you have found any great websites, videos, or photos – please share them with us!
