Leila Chirayath Janah, my new hero - ACT1

As I moved around the web from one corner to another searching for a giant in “Social innovation and Enterprise,” to definitely make my new hero, I came across Leila Chirayath Janah, the founder and CEO of Samasource (http://www.samasource.org).



Samasource enables marginalized people from refugees in Kenya to women in rural Pakistan to receive life-changing work opportunities on the Internet. The core of this concept is microwork – little bits… Continue

A transformed Uganda in 2020! - IMAGINE1

About 10 years back, I was introduced to the concept of Social Innovation and Enterprise in the EVOKE network. The network really put me through some good brain work that helped me dig down into my community, understand the pressing issues it faced, and then critically come up with the solutions to those problems.


During that time, we were faced with high unemployment levels, low literacy level, and hunger among others. When I thought deeply about all this and compared the…

A wake to appreciation and satisfaction - LEARN1

Truth be told, am new to this wh*** idea and concept of Social Innovation but after reading here and there about the concept, I am glad to report that I now have the wh*** concept at my fingertips. What I carry in my head tells me that Social Innovation is all about coming up with new ideas, strategies, and concepts that meet social needs and strengthen civil society.


When I read through Alchemy’s link that he named “Exhibit A” which is about the 33 secrets of Social…

Ronald I can tell you a little bit about biodiesel. Basically it is possible to griw trees like Jatropha and POngamia that produce seeds which are very rich in oil. Like food crops they have a lot of dense oil that can be mixed directly with diesel if it is filtered properly and carefully. If there are adjustments made to the car or generator it can run on entirely biodiesel mostly you need to create a water jacket system that pre-heats the oil before it is used in the engine. I have a mercedes 380 which was converted to run on biodiesel (which is sold at local gas stations after is it treated) and regular veg oil. I got the car from my cousin who used it to go to college in Santa Cruz, she carefully collected waste oil from a Chinese restauraunt and for two years drove to school without having to buy very much diesel at all...just enough to start the engine on cold days. I think for Uganda jatropha tree would work well, the seeds are easier to get now than when i started on this. Mostly it can only handle a mild freeze. After only a year the tree starts to produce seeds, and it can be used as a fence against cattle.
