The episode travels from West Virginia to Haiti and Colombia for stories of children and women breaking out of cycles of poverty and abuse. In this episode, Jennifer Garner returns to her native West Virginia to visit families enrolled in Save the Children’s Early Steps program; Alfre Woodard joins Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn to visit Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere despite billions of dollars in well-intentioned aid, but where one school provides a beacon of hope in helping impoverished children reach their potential; and in Cartagena, Colombia, Kristof, WuDunn, and Eva Longoria meet a woman devoting her life to the pregnant teens and young mothers in the city’s notorious slums.

Panelists for the online chat include two experts from Rochester, NY: Andy Aligne, MD, MPH, Executive Director of the Hoekelman Center in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester and Mary Jo Brach, Director of Family Resource Centers at Hillside.
