The book “Half the Sky” about women around the world

leave a comment »

Good Morning entrepreneurs,

I want to dedicate my post today to speak about the fabulous book of Half the Sky, in which the winners of the Pulitzer Nicholas D.Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, offer a poignant journey through Asia and Africa through the story of women who are changing the world after have been victims of  violations of their rights.

Three  of these women are from Ashoka . This organization  is leading a profound transformation in society.

Women hold up half the sky is a Chinese proverb, however, is above all an aspiration : In much of the world, the girls are uneducated and marginalized, and it is no coincidence that those same countries is where there is the  poverty  disproportionately and chaos.

leave a comment »

Good Morning friends,

In this morning taking my first cafe in the company of you, I would like to tell the story of Javed Abidi a social entrepreneur. Javec Abidi spent a year and a half struggling to believe a law that recognizes the rights of disabled in India.

Javed Abidi, affected at birth with a spinal malady and confined to the wheelchair by medical negligence, is working to provide political visibility and economic opportunities for disabled persons.

 The activist was elected as Partner of Ashoka in 1998, shortly after becoming its proyect in the National Center for Promotion of Employment for People Disabled. Javed Abidi is a social entrepreneur with revolutionary ideas; a social entrepreneurship is based on creative thinking and perseverance.

“If you believe in something must be done”

Best regards,

Mireya
