“At the Mentor Me Fiji Foundation, I have led a team of 30 people for six years; and at Karma Collective, I have led a team of 142 people for two years. Across both organisations we make a positive social impact in New Zealand, Fiji, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam — without spending a cent. Both have worked this way because someone’s ‘need’ has been matched perfectly with someone’s ‘want’.
For example, at Karma Collective, millennial professionals in New Zealand ‘want’ to use their experience in finance, law, engineering and business to make a difference in the world, while millennial entrepreneurs in the developing world ‘need’ access to these exact skills for their businesses to succeed. I brought a few friends together and we built a digital platform to help make this happen.”
So, if you’re ever wanting to make an impact in your local community, country or the world, simply ask yourself this one question: Why not?
