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.

I would like to become better informed about your member networks. I have some quite detailed questions.
For example I support Transparency International (itself a network originated to change what the world bank could not)- how closely connected with it are you? And its leading initiatives- eg Peter Eigen's appointment to the Africa Progress Panel (co-chaired By Kofin Annan and resourced by Bill Gates Fpundation) to help judge whether G8 leaders keep their promises
I also support the idea of the World Social Forum as Oded Grajew describes it http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=9105648100280582267
If the easiset way to explore such details is to come and visit your orgnaisation, please tell me
