100 Day Challenge - (Thriver, not survivor – we vote people in!)[edit | edit source]

Influential people have two outstanding characteristics:

  • All have an absolute sense of purpose
  • All have the quality of generosity

What is it that we want to do over the next 100 days to create value from this workshop?

  • Create a hub so that social entrepreneurship can be promoted
  • Secure partners to create work for rural women
  • Eradicate poverty to create a better quality of life

In order to nurture our inspiration we will:

  • Build network hubs to sustain our enthusiasm


  • Register our individual profiles on the Social Entrepreneurship portal on the Wikiversity website identifying our strengths
  • Each individual participant at the workshop will communicate with other delegates, establishing common goals with a view to discussing concrete proposals and outputs.
  • Create a core team of inspiration leaders representative of all stakeholders

Why do we want to do the 100 Day Challenge?

  • We want to be generous
  • It’s payback time!
  • To transform society
  • Empower people!
  • Bring back hope
  • It gives a tremendous sense of personal satisfaction
