My mission is to create a poverty-free world. I believe that human beings are created to contribute to all other life forms, including their own. But poor people too often spend their lifetime just taking care of themselves because the struggle has been so hard for them. I strongly believe in the unlimited potential of all human beings, not just a privileged few. All kids, when they’re born, represent the same unlimited potential in any circumstance.
Poverty is absolutely meaningless and unnecessary in the world. It was just indifference to poverty that created and sustained it. It’s not created by the poor. It’s created by the system. Once we fix the system in the right way, poverty will disappear.
I’m encouraging young people to become social business entrepreneurs and contribute to the world, rather than just making money. Making money is no fun. Contributing to and changing the world is a lot more fun.
Now those are visions worth living for!
