Tolu Olubunmi: Teaching the Lion to Write
Tolu: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! My organization’s name, Lions Write, comes from my favorite African proverb: “Until the lion learns to write, all the stories will glorify the hunter.” We believe that those directly affected by the problems we want to solve must be active participants in the process. We partner with corporations, governments, and non-profits to develop innovative solutions that are grounded in reality and promote a sense of pride within affected communities. Our work focuses on migration, education, technology, and climate change.

Rekha Magon: Revolutionizing Where, When, and How Children Learn
Rekha: Thanks for inviting me, Spiffy! Well, young families don't have the freedom to explore the world because their children are tied down to a rigid school calendar. Boundless Life empowers young families to live, work, and learn while experiencing the world. At the core of this movement is Boundless Education. Using a personalized approach, children address real-world challenges using the UNSDG framework and are empowered to explore their natural creativity, discover their true passions, and shape their own future. We empower a community of active and impactful learners who can make a change in the world.

Prerana Langa: Preparing and Aiding Communities to Better Face Climate Crises

Prerana Langa: Preparing and Aiding Communities to Better Face Climate Crises

Prerana: Thanks for having me, Spiffy. The climate crisis is affecting the quality of lives across the world, including India. Problems include unsafe and unaffordable housing, loss of green spaces, decreased groundwater, poor air quality, disasters (heat waves and flooding), and reducing economic opportunities. We are promoting climate resilient housing, solarization, cool roof technology, and the creation of green spaces. We are working to revitalize water bodies, raise groundwater levels especially in drought prone areas and to restore coastlines. Most importantly, we are preparing communities to tackle these issues. We are fortunate to have made an impact and to receive amazing support from communities and donors.
