Discover inspiring videos and stories about some of the world changers.
Maria, a co-founder, had several experiences that shaped her convictions throughout her life. She has memories of all of them—in particular, one that gave her a glimpse of another reality happened in Mozambique, where she lived for a year with rural communities. In a visit to a hospital, she met a two-year-old who was suffering from malnutrition and ended up dying in her arms, and at the same time was called to help deliver three babies.
Another journey led her to the Amazon, where, while working in a very remote area, she got a severe case of malaria. Deep in the jungle and days away from the city, she experienced firsthand the lack of medical services for the population.
And in Rabo de Peixe, a fishing village that Duarte regularly visited and worked in for seven years dealing with cases of poverty, alcohol abuse, and severe domestic violence. From nights spent out on the streets with children who couldn’t go home because of their alcoholic and violent parents, to working with local organizations to build a strategy for the village, it was here that he found his passion for social entrepreneurship.
They came across amazing, inspiring stories of individuals and organizations, such as the recovered lives of resilient drug addicts in South Africa; brave missionaries working in the most dangerous streets of Sao Paulo; dedicated social entrepreneurs in the Amazon, defending forests against illegal logging (despite threats and danger); and even organizations trying to protect the lives and ways of the last nomadic herders in Mongolia.
That’s how the idea of creating an online platform to gather and empower world changers was born. Inspired and moved by each social entrepreneur’s stories and leadership, we’ve been working hard and will continue to do so. More than 100,000 miles, 120 talks, and a lot of feedback later, here we are.
