Join us for a conversation with four experts in sustainable funding models for social enterprises: Pamela Nathanson, Executive Director of World Connect US, which funds projects and programs in 35 countries around the world); Yale World Fellow Fauziya Ali, founder and President of Women in International Security-Horn of Africa (WIIS-HoA), a Kenyan-based organization that works towards gender, peace, and security initiatives and researcher of the most downloaded UNDP report to date, “Journey to extremism in Africa,” which she later turned into a toolkit available as a mobile application; Daphnée Charles, a successful social entrepreneur and development Officer for HELP: Haitian Education and Leadership Program, the oldest and most sustainable NGO supporting higher education in Haiti; and Louino Robillard, a community award entrepreneur from Haiti and a Peace Prize Award Winner who is about to realize the biggest community crowdfunding campaign in Haiti for a library for 400,000 people living in the biggest slum in Haiti. They’ll discuss financial sustainability, the current funding landscape, and the future of innovation through social enterprise.
This event is part of the Global Innovation Series, an exciting new partnership between Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY) established by 2017 World Fellow and Tsai CITY Innovator in Residence Baljeet Sandhu. As part of the Knowledge Equity Initiative, the series involves a set of events and discussions hosted around Yale’s campus to explore and celebrate the innovative work of groundbreaking global changemakers across industries, geographies, and cultures. Each event is built in partnership with other centers across the university to connect World Fellows with the community and to encourage multidisciplinary debate and knowledge exchange.
