If you could pass on one piece of advice to future generations, what would it be?

To mark this year’s Remember a Charity in your Will Week, from 12-18 September, we want you to share your greatest words of wisdom, using #MyWisdom.

And if you need some inspiration, look no further than these amazing examples from people in the countries where we work around the world...

Been busy working hard? Remember the rewards, says Noor:

While Nenifara knows that no person is an island:

"Happy are those helping each other."

From YOLO (you only live once) to carpe diem – there are a million ways to make the most of every day:
