Event description

Description

What is better than Charity?

In a world addicted to seeking ever more expensive cures for serious problems such as wasted energy consumption, unnecessary food loss, and third world illnesses and death resulting from unsafe water, Enviro Stewards is committed to finding a better way. Bruce will describe some of their successes and in particular will focus on the failings of traditional foreign aid and set forth a better way. After examining why traditional models of delivering aid have had the negative effect of depressing local economies, a social venture based approach to locally construct and sell water purification systems is used to illustrate the power of empowerment based development approaches. In other words, going beyond ‘doing’ and ‘teaching’ to ‘teaching how to teach’ allows benefits to spread exponentially. This model has survived even after the cataclysmic upheaval of the civil war in South Sudan.

Bruce recently presented this model at a TED talk and will bring it to us in a multimedia presentation that will advance your thinking on how to overcome the negatives of traditional aid.

Bruce Taylor is the founder and President of Enviro-Stewards Inc.
