Another great example of Social Entrepreneurship helping people in poor countries AND creating jobs at the same time...This model of development needs to become the norm...

An excellent example of a concept I believe in more and more everyday---Helping people in developing/poor countries through the promotion of entrepreneurship and self-sufficiency.  In this instance, providing low-cost  (NOT "free) eye glasses to people through a network of "health entrepreneurs" who are residents of the areas served. Using local talent to serve local needs--not rocket science, yet it eludes the purveyors of government administered foreign aid.   This is social entrepreneurship in the same vein as my favorite, INDEGOAFRICA....Students---if you are looking for a way to help people improve their lives, social entrepreneurship is the wave of the future...Someone tell me again, why dont groups like this get much recognition???
