A new place… but still me!

18 Sep

I refuse to believe there is no solution to the hunger, pain, malnutrition, climate change, poverty of mind and wallet. I see food, medication, education, clean water, decent housing and employment for every human being. Call me a dreamer, but I cannot sit back. I prefer to get moving and building towards billions of people living a life every human deserves.

Millions of people in the world think like me, thankfully I am not special. There are thousands of volunteers in Africa, decades of NGO work and Development Coooperation have come and gone. Hundreds of Millions in the world donate for the betterment of peoples’ suffering. But still the problems seem to be getting worse, not better.

Between making money and making a difference, choose both!

I heard this slogan in 2010 and got excited. You can make a sustainable income and still change lives?
Sounds like the answer to a lot of challenges in Emerging Market and Developing Countries. Byebye Corruption? I hope you are as excited about it as I am and hopefully even more.
In 2011 I started my career as a consequence of my time in Africa. I am now part of the Social Business Movement by joining edgeand I moved to London.

It’s another step towards supporting change in this region that I hold very dear. The journey starts today, be with my on manumoments.wordpress.com!

    Glückwunsch – klingt interessant! Wobei die Gegensätze in den Lebensumständen im Vergleich mit einer Stadt wie London sehr spannend sein dürften…

    As I spent 2009 in Kenya, I wish I could have done more…that I got more involved, and that I knew how to enjoy @…at least I know and meet ppl like u that are less selfish and are great examples for our youth!

    I agree with you generally but I believe we need to go higher than solving the basic need problem since this will lead to the question of happiness. An issue the US is dealing with and results in the Developed world having the highest rates of Suicide http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/09/opinion/sunday/gdp-doesnt-measure-happiness.html?pagewanted=all
