The franchise idea is wonderful. How can this idea apply to our immigrant problem? Many of the illegals, especially, live like the people in the slums of Africa. Is there a way we could exchange with Mexico, say, some of our problems for theirs? Could we franchise farms with our prisoners on them in Mexico, for their workers coming here in a franchise training program? The cost of keeping so many prisoners is enormous; yet, we need low cost workers here for menial jobs. There must be a way of putting all that money to better use.
A program I’d like to see started deals with vasectomies as a way to avoid unplanned pregnancies without drugs, calendars, or denying adults the pleasures of sex. Governments could offer incentives in whatever form suits an area. There could be artificial insemination later if a man and woman pass a parenting class after having been married for a certain amount of time. This could work in middle America or around the world, utilizing existing clinics or developing mobile units in rural areas.
Thank you for starting Enterprising Ideas and your commitment to getting the word out. To me, NOW’s focus on this can get a message rarely heard in the media today which is, “there are solutions and they are working they may be small but they are being proven and, given time,
they will become scaleable and individuals can have enormous power to make a contribution.”
The CFW story is mindboggling 2 billion healthcare visits at $1/visit to tackle 70% of Africa’s deadly illnesses. This is an ROI any non NGO CEO would give his eye teeth for. The figure NOW left out was, how many African lives saved would that represent? And all for $2 billion a paltry sum in today’s world economy. Here you will see some amazing stories about the power of the individual.
Bring us some more of the “real news” on NOW! With some of your stories, we may need to change the program name to WOW! Keep up the good work.
This week on the ABC Evening News, 2 stories appeared. One was about microfinnacing through a group called Kiva. 24 hours after the show aired, Kiva’s donations for additional microloans had gone up $100,000 literally overnight. On Friday night, the show’s Person of the Week segment highlighted the work of 2 high school juniors from Northfield Mt Hermon School in Mass. who initiated the fund raiser called Dollars for Darfur. Their effort was to start a competition among the nation’s 22,000 high schools to raise money for Darfur. Their goal was $200k and they ended up with over $300k and have now launched a second program. They also testified before Congtress last week, and previously appeared on Martha Stewart.
Finally, I would recommend to anyone wishing an overview of the extensive global grass roots initiatives for positive change and improvement in social justice and environmental work Paul Hawken’s new book entitled, “Blessed Unrest How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One saw It Coming.”
Again, David and the NOW Team,
keep telling the story and keep up the good work.
Hi I agree to an extent with Anne. I think that by taking food to other countries and giving them money to start companies is a form of acceptance in their primitave way of life. It sikens me to turn on the television and watch these children being exploited due to their parents neglegance and responsiblity. Sex is NOT the only form of intimacy and as we teach our own if you are not responsible enough to care for a possible child DO NOT HAVE SEX. Being “ready” is a state of mind. Mono marriages should be enforced due to a growing population that cannot IF they live through childhood survive or they multiply to watch a child starve for their OWN sexual needs. That wake up in the morning mourning the month becuase it is YET another month without a positive test result for pregnancy.
Men should be imprisoned should they fail to become employed and stay gainfully employed when they have a child to care for. A woman should NOT be allowed to take the child they have given birth to unless she can prove that she can care for that child (not prostitution).
Why do we promote and give money to Child Abusers????? Baby Killers???
How many of you donate to your local abortion clinic??? How many walk up to a known crack addict and give them money to do the right thing KNOWING they are only going to use again??? Do you frequent court rooms of known child abusers?? Would you open your wallet to them??? NO.
