What thought leaders are saying about us

SG Ban Ki-moon
During my tenure as Secretary-General, I always worked to make women’s empowerment a top priority and I can see that Asia Initiatives is carrying on that legacy.
Dr. Mamphela Ramphele
Your concept could unleash a transformative pathway away from the current unsustainable and demeaning social welfare hand-capital as an essential ingredient of sustainable and providing an instrument to implement and measure projects that enhance it and give communities the sense of power and accomplishment.
Marva Allen
A system such as SoCCs is a catalyst to the formal economy. It is the precursor to eradicating poverty....it is building hope, self-reliance, self-confidence, spurring entrepreneurship and ultimately creating good citizens.
Dr. Susan Blaustein
The Social Capital Credits program is a proven, powerful tool for advancing toward social justice by acknowledging the honest work of individuals and returning the fruits of that work both to these individuals and their communities.
Pedro Sanchez
A tribute to a good idea is how no one has thought about it before. SoCCs is the best idea I have heard since Muhammad Yunus’ Grameen Bank umpteen years ago. You got yourself a tool. I urge you to pursue it.
Prof. Jeffrey Sachs
It is just amazing to learn of your innovative work in Kumasi on SoCCs. This sounds absolutely wonderful, a real breakthrough.
Eva Haller
SoCCs has the potential to be as transformative a concept as micro-credit.
Joan Holmes
Psychology studies indicate differences between people working for good/social causes versus just working to earn money. Who do we become when we work for social good and the impact that has on communities, versus who we become if we think only of ourselves, and of everything in terms of money?
Donna Akuamoah
SoCCs is indeed a glimpse into the future of social justice work!
