Thinking Twice; Buying With A Conscience

Human beings are much bigger than just making money. That’s what Mohammed Yunus said. Never did this statement ring truer than during my internship at Verite, a non-profit firm in Amherst, MA. At Verite, everyone works to ensure that people around the world work under safe, fair and legal working conditions. It was satisfying to know that the work I did went directly to improve working conditions, raise incomes and provide better opportunities for workers across the globe.
