"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." Mother Teresa

According to the World Health Organization there are some 900 Million people globally at the level of starvation. 18,000 people die every day because of this growing problem. This blog will highlight the areas around the world we are currently working feverishly to end these avoidable deaths and bring stories of happiness and hope for the future. Join us in creating a perpetual feeding machine that not only saves lives, but provides an income stream for you and your own family at the very same time.

Financial Long-term Change

A social entrepreneur identifies and solves social problems on a large scale. Social entrepreneurs are interested in sustainable solutions that create social value. A traditional business entrepreneur must always look at their bottom-line. (Not that that is a bad thing, I was a traditional entrepreneur for more than 25 years.) A social entrepreneur looks at how a solution to a social problem provides long-term, immediate help and, at the same time, creates in income for those who take part in the solution.

Unlike traditional business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs primarily seek to generate "social value" rather than profits. Unfortunately, the majority of non-profit organizations work is targeted only towards immediate, small-scale effects.  A social entrepreneur is focused on long-term change.

I'm sure it all sounds superficial to those who have not gotten all the facts. A more in depth look is needed by anyone who thinks this sounds too good to be true. Otherwise, you have done a grave disservice to others, and yourself.
