Addressing the unaddressed
An old friend of mine in Dublin has entered the Rockefeller Foundation’s Next Century Innovation Award. It is a great and inspiring entry and they are down to the final 2 entries. Under the title “Addressing the Unaddressed” www.addressingtheunaddressed.org if they win, they we will have enough money to give addresses to another quarter of a million people living in slums in India! This will allow these people to access social welfare entitlements, receive an identity card, vote, open a bank account, and interact with utility companies and enable aid agencies to better serve the dwellers.
The winner will be the entry that receives the highest number of votes up to May 31 2013. To vote click on http://bit.ly/Ygdcko
