How will we measure success?

If we help just one family lift itself out of poverty, we will have done something worth doing.

If the Pilot Project helps to lift thirty families out of poverty, we will have been very successful.

If the Pilot Project results in a workable anti-poverty program that can be replicated in other poor communities elsewhere in the world -- a program through which one community of families in the developed world can reach out and help a community of poor families in the developing world to bootstrap themselves out of poverty, enabling them to have enough food to eat, a decent place to live, adequate medical care, and to send their children to school -- then we will have achieved our Pilot Project's ultimate goal.
