If we are going to change the world in ways that empower every human being to make a difference, then it seems pretty certain that social entrepreneurs and their networks will be there to help and guide us. Uniquely, this is an method that has emerged from the grassroots of all the world's regions criss-crossing cultures and other borders - with Bangladesh contributing two of the world's currently most valued social entrepreneurial changes - microfinance 1 2 3 and the world's largest citizen organisation 1 2 3 . If there is any way we can help people in Pakistan explore where social entrepreneurs have already discovered ways of improving humanity's lot in many of the most challenging arenas of life on this earth, please do tell us.

Charlie Rose is one of American tv's most respectful interviewers; his show also has a messageboard where I have just added this. Do come along and a point of view
13 Dec Charlie Rose interviewed 2 heads of Industry (from pharma company Pfeizer and Xerox) on their return from seeing the human struggle for survival after Pakistan's earthquakes.
While the stories of individual heroines (eg nurses from USA getting on a plane to Pakistan so as to volunteer their services) it was unclear in spite of the moving commitment of the 2 CEOs what corporate America was going to do this side of the dire winter that is already descending on the peoples of the quaked mountains.
I invite anyone who knows of what corporate America is doing to provides us with the detailed links; conversely anyone who's been in the quaked areas to clarify what help is needed first. I will be the first to celebrate if I am wrong but my guess is that more people will have ended up dying in these quakes than the Tsunami, but the world may only have responded with 10% of that which it found in its heart for the Tsunami peoples. http://clubofpakistan.blogspot.com
