Ideas behind this business are precisely related to the question. The company "Thankyou water" is able to provide a month of clean water to someone in poverty, for every bottle of water sold in Aus. Utilising facebook & the crowd to get 7-11 to help!

Steaphan commented on Food subscription + Food insurance

Nice! Maybe, depending on the growth that happens, part of the re-investing in communities can include a new branch of the venture which operates community based 'food-education' classes? That way people will not only have access to the food resources, but also have the knowledge about the properties of the food and maybe creative ways to utilise these fresh resources.

Steaphan commented on Caldas Sports Academy

I agree with Mario, well done! Personally I'm not a sports person and tend to prefer 'deeper', wholistic, more wholly humanistic systems, however, once I looked past my bias and reffered back to the question I think this is brilliant and hots the target spot on! I also think the simplistic design could be very attractive for outside investment to really help drive it, so very well done!

One thing i think that maybe can still be approved on, is the sports education on eating habits, because that may be limited by the food resources they have access too, including not only raw food resources but also people and technologies around setting up sustainable food production systems.

Steaphan commented on Major brands empowering indigenous entrepreneurship

Very good example, just like the inspiration you built upon here. Like I said before, the benefits of empowering these people rather than charitising them seem substantial. I'm still worried about profit endevours within these communities where profits go to outside companies with no commitments to reinvest. But, having said that, I think these are two great examples!
