Worldview took Global Activism on the road to India! The Chicago-based NGO, India Development Service (IDS), guided us through big cities like, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, as well as to remote villages and towns. We met people working to overcome challenges like illiteracy, educating girls, class issues, clean water supply.
University of Chicago Harris School graduate, Tricia Martinez, came to believe, “policy solutions are not driven by potential impact for the individual or the ability to influence large-scale change, rather they are driven by political agendas.” For Global Activism, Martinez tells us about her new project called “Basic Transfer”. It’s a “hybrid social venture with a mission to lift women around the world out of poverty through cash transfers.”
