A System of providing Realistic Solutions for Real Problems
Prepare to Act on what YOU know People need for their Lives
in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The DRC is a resource rich, least developed country where children,
women and men are trapped in endless cycles of hopelessness
and ever deeper levels of extreme poverty because the corporations that
bring us our smart phones and homes, electric vehicles even our spaceships
and military hardware refuse to foster local economic development when
they transfer the mineral wealth out of places like the DRC.
We all need to show the world that increased economic activity is
not only possible but easier to manage than the corruption
that currently define the global mineral supply chain.
In the time it will take you to read this document, more children will die from avoidable extreme poverty. According to the United Nations some 2,000,000 children are at risk of starving to death in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Even with massive amounts of mineral and natural resources in the DRC a vast majority of these resources are being transferred out of the DRC and Great Lakes without benefiting the children, women and men who live in the region.
This significant loss of wealth and capital flight has resulted in an inability of local entrepreneurs, small and medium sized businesses in the DRC to grow.
THE GREEN PROGRAM (www.thegreenprogram.org) will fund practical, intensive business incubation activities that will combine practical technology and training for entrepreneurs to give them small and medium sized business solutions that create value where they live. Our Crowdfunding business incubation project will give these women and men trapped in extreme poverty a chance to live a different life. Our focus on creating sustainable jobs will facilitate effective solutions that address the root causes of the resource driven extreme poverty and violence that continues to enslave the children, women and men in the DRC.
It is up to us to step up, Do The Possible and become the missing engine for growth by jump starting life transforming and practical economic development solutions for parents and families.
THE GREEN PROGRAM will use a "feet on the ground" participatory approach to establish renewable power, water purification and educational expansion solutions in this extreme resource rich least developed country. We have the necessary government approvals in place and are ready to awaken, with your involvement, an entrepreneurial spirit in the DRC.
As we have seen, sending aid, food and clothing that simply dumps money into this region only makes the situation more desperate. THE GREEN PROGRAM will address these systemic development problems in cooperation with local communities and struggling young entrepreneurs. Our unique Socio-Economic Resource Development model has an achievable goal of creating sustainable employment for over 100,000 the first year and add 100,000 each year for the first 5 years.
Why do we need to Crowdfund THE GREEN PROGRAM? Watch this movie that was produced by Friends of the Congo and shows in graphic terms what the reality the global mineral supply chain that feels they need the the extreme, violence, rape and children working in the mines to bring you the smartphone, laptops and tablets, electric vehicles, airplanes, spaceships and solar panels we all need and use. We all need to take responsibility and create the economic development that is possible. For the benefit of the children, women and men trapped by extreme poverty and violence we need to do the possible in the DRC and Great Lakes.
