In the critically acclaimed video Let My Dataset Change Your Mindset (Rosling, 2009) Dr. Hans Rosling provides insights into how old mindsets with regard to the 3rd world versus 1rst world need to be re-evaluated and considered from the standpoint of what really differentiates the two. He also provides insights of how the new mindset is being driven by a series of stipulations that countries are increasingly relying on to lift the health of their entire populations (Rosling, 2009). He also provides insights into how the prodigious saving of 3rd world nations helped to finance the bail-out of the American financial crisis, and how these nations are also carrying the majority of economic burden today for developing economies (Rosling, 2009). His examples clearly illustrate how critical it is for countries to invest heavily in education, healthcare including vaccinations, and infrastructure to support the safe delivery of food, water and ensure the hygiene of a population (Rosling, 2009).
This report defines, examines and promotes a non-profit capitalistic business model. The model endorses enterprises which compete in the free market, but eschews profits in favor of social benefits. This entails an increased workforce with benefits and wages on par with current standards. This increased employee pool works under a staggered shift structure so that each employee only works a 3-day (24 hour) workweek. Labor is scheduled in such a way that there is necessary labor coverage for the firm to function and compete over a traditional 5-day business week.

“Eye Heart World was born in 2010 when Brian and Season Russo decided to take action against human trafficking in an innovative way. For the first awareness event they organized, Season and her mother, Denise Foster, created 30 bags, hoping to raise funds for a safe home in their community. Supporting the cause in a tangible way proved to be contagious - every single bag was sold that day. Since it’s inception, Eye Heart World has sold thousands of products; educated over 20,000 individuals and raised over $100,000 to fund the fight against Human Trafficking.” I absolutely love this mission statement because it shows exactly what the cause is for and has no loopholes. The product is all designed and hand picked by Season herself and all of the profits, 100% go to funding aid and bringing awareness. I think an organization like this is so important to today, especially living in the society we live in, to help bring awareness in a way that is both practical and appealing to the eye. The handbags that are made for sale are so beautiful and classy, and each one in marked with an orange rose. The reason this orange rose is placed on every handbag is because it represents the delicate and unique lives of those who are exploited and had their lives taken from them. “Each life deserves freedom,
Not in a bad way however, in so many ways they want to save the lives of kids who need it so badly. In the first place, they want everybody to recognize that children need rights like every other person in this world. Many around the world are living in poverty and are experiencing lack of fairness in the world. They want children to be shielded from the appalling effects from war, inequality, malnutrition and not by some of the kids of the world, they want to aid every single person they reach. A goal that this whole organization was made for was to relieve the pain and suffering of the children around the world. That there are people in this world that want to help them with their

The organization is an international leader in bringing clean water to developing areas, repairing or building 8,717 wells since 2011 (World Vision, Clean Water, 2014, para. 1). A large part of their success is due to the sustainability of the wells they drill. A survey conducted in 2003 analyzed 492 World Vision wells constructed since 1995 in a part of Africa (Evaluation Results: World Vision’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Programs, n.d., para. 1). An astonishing 428 of these 492 wells were still producing a sufficient volume of clean water. When World Vision drills a well, they set up an infrastructure in the surrounding community that enables the well’s functionality (World Vision, Evaluation Results: World Vision’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Programs, n.d., para.
a. World Relief Nashville is located in an office suite in Nashville on the side of a main road, though the office suite is not visible due to the amount of other occupied offices and the trees blocking the view of the office suites. This conveys to me that World Relief doesn’t spend unnecessary money on building space, which can allow them to place more resources in the work they do. Much of the visible work done at World Relief isn’t performed in their office, as workers and volunteers live out the mission of World Relief in the public. The World Relief logo is located on the outside of the door of the building. Since it is located in an office complex there is not much company visibility beyond this. The building is very easy to find as long as you know the address. There are also offices in multiple countries in churches which partner with World Relief (“worldreliefnashville.org”).
Hi Catherine, You really pick a very good non-profit organization to discuss in your discussion board this week. World Vision does a lot to help the poor and downtrodden people of many third world nations. Many of these countries the people have no access to the basic necessities that we take for granted on a daily basis. You bring up some very good concepts that should be important to the organization. I think another very good concept for World Vision should be accountability.
Nonprofit Organizations The purpose of this research is to define nonprofit organizations, describe opportunities that are present in nonprofits, outline advantages and disadvantages of working in the nonprofit sector, and explain how you can determine if this is an area for you to consider as a career. WHAT IS THE NONPROFIT SECTOR?
