Social Innovation Secret - Understand

The secret most helpful for me to remember is the importance of understanding the full context of who you are trying to help - culture, resources, environment, mentality...

I learned this first hand as I was working with a orphanage in Haiti who was trying to develop sustainable food sources. After looking into a varied approach and preparing to implement agricultural programs and a tilapia farm, we quickly discovered that as people removed form their daily life we failed to…

I have this dream to create a network of sustainable back-yard gardens to 1) provide local fresh produce to food banks, and 2) recreate a sense of community amoung neighbors as they share their harvest with each other.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
