Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I discovered Manna Energy Foundation among Ashoka's Change Makers finalists. Their web page declares a revolutionary agenda: "The Manna Energy Foundation represents a revolution in philanthropy,
with the vision that positive change can come from a combination of both
philanthropic action and social enterprise.
Our goal is to positively impact the
lives of one billion people in the next ten years through the use of
social entrepreneurship."

The use of social enterprise was one thing that really caught my attention. Social enterprise reverses many traditional aspects of international aid: instead of donors paying foreign companies to provide needed goods and services, local initiatives employing local residents are provided with seed money and technical aid to set up their own for-profit or non-profit companies.

Another thing I like about Manna Energy is that it is well-designed not only to partner with other organizations, but to make it easy for anyone to support them. In addition to a donation button on the 'How You Can Help' page, there is also a link to a search engine which will donate to Manna Energy for every search you make and a Facebook Fan page.

Please join me in donating if you can. If not, please use the search link for some of your internet searches and become a fan.
