IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 111: The Multiplication Strategy: How to get Everything For Free
In the humanitarian sector, toilet and sanitation issues do not appeal the way pandas, global warming or drinking water do. It was almost like a taboo topic for global discussion, leading to 2.5 billion people without access to proper sanitation. With a shoe string budget and a unique mix of humour with serious facts, Singapore's very own Ashoka Fellow Jack Sim created the other WTO - World Toilet Organization, the first Made-in-Singapore world body in 2001.
By creating a Base of Pyramid HUB in Singapore, Jack will soon integrate sanitation solutions across all poverty sectors such as health, education, water, livelihood through the marketplace to make them cheaper, faster, and better.
The power of one can be multiplied many times over by leveraging on partnerships from all the different sectors to "get almost everything for free." He will explain how you can have zero-cost event, global branding, pro-bono services, massive continuous media coverage and karket-based solutions for sustainable impact.
