Photo of the Week: The Power of Hard Work

August 30, 2013

In honor of Labor Day, we salute workers across the world.

At the CAPROCAFIM cooperative in western Honduras, a worker inspects cocoa seedlings. In the United States, many people will enjoy a day off on Monday to celebrate Labor Day, a recognition of the contributions of workers here. In that same spirit, TechnoServe honors the men and women in developing countries who work hard every day to earn a living.

TechnoServe’s work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hardworking men and women in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs and wealth for their families and communities. On Labor Day, we salute this spirit of hard work – and the promise it holds for a better future for people facing poverty.
