UP Founder and Director, Martha T. Cummings, describes it as a full-circle event that her hometown of Southborough, Massachusetts, was willing to do not just one but two articles on Universal Promise and its efforts in South Africa.

Cummings writes, "I am grateful to the Southborough online news for featuring this story. Many thanks to journalist Karen Bento and much gratitude for all the good I inherited from being raised in such an amazing town."

"Parenting, birthplace, education, and the resulting opportunities have a profound impact on one's ability to convert ideas to reality," Cummings said. Cummings credits so much of her devotion to education to her parents, her teachers in Massachusetts, and the college education she was fortunate to receive as a result.
