A crash course in changing the world.
To all who it may concern:
Over the last week I have written back on many of the issues on EVOKE, was it about Learning,Energy and all the other important issues, however a lot of the comments are related to articles written and only about 20% are based of peoples own feelings.
Having worked for over 30+ years on projects worldwide, especially the last 10 years in Asia, I have seen and lived in areas of poverty.
When, I connected with EVOKE, i saw an opportunity to connect with people worldwide, who, maybe I am naive, would have the same understanding of the world economies and understood, that all what is discussed is of interest, but were are we going from here and how do all of us something about the issues.
The world, as it exist, is divided in several entities, the cooperations, most people do not like them, but they are a necessity, governments, we vote them in, so we have to live and coordinate with them, the middleclass, they are normally satisfied with the way they live and the areas were poverty reins.
In the last years,i decided, that with my background and knowledge build over the years,why not get involved in advising and helping to eradicate some of the poverty in existence.
That is ofcourse easier said then done, you need the help of all the above institutions and the people to succeed even on a small scale.
It is not only moneys, which are an essential part to succeed, anybody who thinks otherwise lives on another planet, but also to build up trust of all parties concerned, in some cases this could take years.
As an example, I give you Vietnam, over the last 10 years, the economy and living standards increased, however, what is happened in the last year is that the economy, because of the worls collapse, but more worrying the education system is totally collapsed.
Millions of unding has gone in, the point is that the teachers have left the profession, because of bad and none payment of salaries.
Poverty in Asia in the last year has gone up by 6%, reasons, yes the world economy, but also the many disasters like floods, earthquakes etc.
The point in all this is, we have a change to connect, we could and have to find opportunities and solutions, but what happened after may 2010, will we forget what we started or go on talking.
My company mission is:
Connecting people here.........with people over there
It is the intention to build relationships with these people who are in need, SME's should work together, so to make it cost effective, we should form JV's and manufacture were possible in the these areas, only then will they have a change.
Instead of talk, let's become progressive and built together for the good of many
