Pedro commented on Using Successful Businesses for Help

Hello Meena, I do believe that it does put pressure on the authorities that this an important issue they should work on. Sometimes the authorities overlook the major problem and care more about economic development even though the source of the lack of the economy might be on the safety of people. That is why I believe that when a corporation such as Intel tries to strive to make a change, the government can see that they are lacking in the ability for that change. In some scenarios, usually a business makes a bigger impact in a society because it provides security for the people around and caring more than the government.

Pedro commented on Making Women Safe at Work in India

Hello Blair, great contribution. I agree that safety of women is an important point but in able to make safety possible, I agree that we have to make the transportation safe as well. Sometimes in these low-income urban areas, the investment of transportation is pricey but in a long run the government should realize that they will benefit but also protecting the lives of many individuals. Also by partnering up with such business like Nasscom, we can use a similar model in where we can find a solution for our challenge in where we can provide safety for women around the globe.
