Sometimes, it's not what we do...
We often measure our value or self-worth by what we personally accomplish. Sometime, it’s not what we do that matters but what we can help others do better. One of the ways we can do so is to connect disparate members of our network to one another to achieve the common goal of improving the quality of life of society as a whole. By working together, unimaginable synergies can often be realized. So, here is an invitation.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (https://www.linkedin.com/company/bill-&-melinda-gates-foundation/) has put forth a substantial effort to reduce water scarcity and help eradicate easily preventable diseases caused by avoidable poor sanitation. (https://www.gatesfoundation.org/search#q/k=water). The foundation focuses on technology development to address the problems and tries to work with regional governments to garner approval and implementation of those technologies. They also work with residents of the countries they assist to further facilitate implementation.
On the flip side Waves for Water (https://www.linkedin.com/company/waves-for-water/) is putting forth a substantial effort to bring clean-water technologies to disenfranchised communities abroad. Their focus is to give veterans an opportunity to continue their contributions to society by using their skills to bring those technologies to war-torn and natural disaster-affected regions. They are literally the boots on the ground.
Let’s make this world a better place to live.
