We believe that poverty does not belong to a civilized
human society. It belongs to museums.
All human beings have an innate skill - survival skill. The
fact that poor are still alive is a proof of their ability
to survive. We do not need to teach them how to survive.
They know this already.
--Dr. Mohammad Yunus
