Mechai Viravaidya – Population & Community Development Association
Mechai Viravaidya launched Population & Community Development Association 30 years ago to address the necessities of life for rural populations: HIV/Aids, income generation, women’s rights, environment, governance… It’s all about "empowerment of the poor."
Global X recommends that you watch Mechai Viravaidya as he gives a piece of advice to young social entrepreneurs (at 2’32 in this three-minute interview): "Young man, young woman, go out and change the world! The world is yours. Help people to become philanthropists. Make 10 million junior Jeff Skolls. We will have so much more money to give than Jeff Skoll!"
