50 years ago this month Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to the US with the American Red Cross as a young Korean to learn the value of service. During that trip, he and other young people met with President John F Kennedy and that was when he resolved to embark on a life of public service. This weekend he'll meet up other programme participants for their 50th reunion!
Education is transformational. It changes lives. That is why people work so hard to become educated and why education has always been the key to the American Dream, the force that erases arbitrary divisions of race and class and culture and unlocks every person's God-given potential."~Condoleezza Rice
