Success Stories

"One of the newest figures to emerge on the world stage in recent years is the social entrepreneur.  This is usually someone who burns with desire to make a positive social impact on the world, but believes that the best way of doing it is, as the saying goes, not by giving poor people a fish and feeding them for a day, but by teaching them to fish, in the hopes of feeding them for a lifetime.  I have come to know several social entrepreneurs in recent years, and most combine a school brain with a social worker's heart.  The triple convergence and the flattening of the world have been a godsend to them.  Those who get it are adapting to it and have begun launching some very innovative projects."
