Every Thursday on Global Activism we hear about an individual who's decided to work to make the world a better place.

People’s teeth often go overlooked in development work. Annie Nardone, a dental hygienist, wanted more out of life. At 25, as she went through what she called a “quarter-life crisis,” Annie decided to use her dental skills to help impoverished communities in Honduras. On her first visit, she examined 500 kids. She tells us about her mission to bring dental care to children through her organization, Hands with Hope, with clinics in Nueva Suyapa and San Marcos, Honduras.
