THE MISSION - Create a platform for global change-makers to solve the world's mega problems and endorse Global Equal Opportunity

WHY?

The way we (government, charities and CSR programmes) reach those at the base of the pyramid is patronising and breeds laziness and inherent dependence. More critically, it fosters civil insubordination, a dwindling middle-class and weaker global governance. By eradicating dependency and existentialism, we've made children believe that they matter and created passion for their own personal development. We've inculcated a willingness to want help, which according to Schumacher, should be the first step to economic development.

We believe opportunity, not charity is the answer to a better society. We believe human relationships, not concrete buildings are how to break the mental inertia of the bottom billion. We believe social capital is the key to cease the ever increasing concentration of wealth. 

HOW?
I've come to realise one my weaknesses is the ability to articulate my thoughts on paper. I've attached videos to aid with that.

so, it's just a football event?
No - Football is ONLY the connector (Bottom to Top). The purpose is for people like this and people like this to solve problems like these.

THE PERSON - This isn't business, it's personal

We don't believe those born with less are capable of doing less. We believe they can do amazing things when given an opportunity to be amazing. We want to connect them with amazing people who can provide these opportunities. 

“If all of us in this room were to help only 10 people in our lifetime, and ask those 10 people to help another 10 people, we could change the world in a matter of years”    - Dave Levin - Founder, KIPP

 I'm writing this today to ask for the help of one person to help me. Not sure why you should? Here is a good reason why.

We're not looking for someone to tell me why this won't work, met and know a lot of these people already. I am looking for a mentor to concentrate his/her time in helping me find those who believe it can work/adapt it so it does work.

There is no prereq about your credentials, title or age, though ideally you would would have the some of following traits;

  • Entrepreneurial/intrapreneneurial
  • Disruptive (of industries, authority and current models for reaching BoP)
  • C-Level professional/personal Network
  • Corruption, Global Governance, Government Aid, Transparency 
  • Conscientious of global socio-economics problems (Wealth Disparity, BoP exclusion, civil insubordination etc) and ideally the effect they have on businesses and growth
  • Open-mindedness - Ignorance is not bliss here
  • Understand CSI as new CSR

Above all else, you need to care (really care) about making this work and you need to have unyielding faith in it working. Do it, or don't it - there is no 'try'

Finally, you need to be ready for success! when it comes, it will not be my success, but rather our success! This is important to know!
