A crash course in changing the world.
In Jordan, the presence of Takiet Um Ali with a Vision of "Towards a ‘free from hunger’ Jordan in 2015" has been a great support for those of us who want to make sure that their money does not only feed the poor but also goes beyond to empower the poor. (http://www.tkiyetumali.org/English/how_tkiyet.shtm).
I am an annual contributor to Takiet Um Ali and have added my company "Structure Consulting" to the list of contributors. I added in our articles of Association that Structure Consulting should annually contribute 2.5% of our retained earnings to the Takiet and have even a line item in our accounting system allocated to that.
I am an active member in many NGO's in Jordan, four of which are related to ecosystems and social entrepreneurship, The first is The Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (www.jreds.org ), the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Young Entrepreneurs Association (www.yea.com.jo ) (and facebook) and most recently, the Jordan Green Building Council (www.jordangbc.org ) (check it on faceook)
In all the above Associations.
