Big charities can become focused on solving big problems. That isn't a bad thing.
It is, however, also a good idea for charitable organizations to focus on solving smaller problems which when solved, can actually make a significantly positive difference in an individual child's life.
Often times a child with a lot of potential simply needs to have some smart planning and coaching to be headed on the right track. And this could be done in a matter of hours or days, not months or years.
