A Small Dream Takes Wings: Women Aloud a Women Centric Video Blog ...
I am not the best when it comes to envisaging the future, nothing visionary about this blogger. However, there are two things amongst a few others that I think will move the mountains of stagnation and empower India as a society: a. Participative platforms emerging from the interiors of India b. Digital content networks They’re not related and are just two of the few things I would like to contribute as and how my career spans out.

She cites an example from a JA course for Primary One students. 'We tell them that there is a playground that has to be renovated, and then we ask them - how do we raise funds to renovate it?

Career Change to Social Entrepreneurship | Ask MetaFilter
Is it possible to break into social entrepreneurship/development without getting a MBA? Especially when you already have a master's degree? About 10 years ago, I came back to the States after a stint in the Peace Corps and deciding that getting a MLIS would be a better career path than a degree in International Development. Mostly because PC advises people against getting International Relations degrees because of the glut/competition in the development profession + I figured the MLIS would be valueable because of all the changes going on in technology.
