FOREWORD2 INTRODUCTION BY OUR GODFATHER WHO IS ANTONIO MELOTO ? « I fully support your project Destination Changemakers. Mr Antonio Meloto, 61, is the Founding President of the NGO Gawad Kalinga (to Give Care in Tagalog). For the past 15 I see people in your group as the next generation of years, he has devoted himself to the fight against extreme young people who want to build a better, a safer planet. poverty in the Philippines, with the aim to restore dignity to We will work together in the Philippines to eradicate the 25 million poorest Filipinos by 2024 (5 million poverty and to restore human dignity, and I guess this is households in slums). an exciting opportunity for us to build new business models together. So I will be your godfather. » His approach is to build empowered, sustainable, self- sufficient "Communities", accompanied by 7 development Tony MELOTO, 27/11/11, in Paris programs (including for education and health), and now, to significantly develop and scale-up social businesses. Today, more than 2,000 "GK Villages" cover the country with a social impact estimated at one million beneficiaries. Tony has initiated the concept of the "Enchanted Farm" (to prevent rural migration to urban areas), and the first one out of 24 has just been inaugurated by the President of the Republic of the Philippines. To achieve such ambitious objectives, Gawad Kalinga promotes the concepts of "caring & sharing" and involves a large number of people to support this "Grand Cause", with no exceptions : young people, previous "gang leaders", students, faculties, politicians of all sides, employees, business leaders (including Shell, Unilever, Philips, Coca-Cola, IBM, HP, Hyundaï or AirFrance-KLM), GK is now supported by an "army" of 25,000 regular volunteers and 1 million occasional volunteers. In fact, we can summarize the "GK Way" as a three-step process: changing values within affected communities, extensive public-private partnerships, and massive volunteerism. The construction process actually begins with a rebuilding of the values of the community and the change of mindset of "rich" people by building authentic relationships. Tito Tony, is a remarkable example of "transformational Our team, with Tony Meloto and Olivier leadership" ; in 2009 he wrote "Builder of Dreams", and he is Girault (President of Gawad Kalinga) also the recipient of numerous awards, including the "Social after a conference of Tony Meloto and Entrepreneur of the Year" in 2010 in the Philippines by Arnaud Ventura at Sciences-Po Paris Ernst & Young and the Schwab Foundation. As such, he will (28/10) be a guest-speaker in January 2012 at the "World Economic Forum" in Davos.
INTRODUCTION3 DESTINATION CHANGEMAKERS IN A WORD KEY FIGURES Destination Changemakers is a project aiming at helping social entrepreneurs 20 months of preparation to scale up and maximize their social impact. After one year and a half of 9 months of missions preparation in the UK and France, we will help social entrepreneurs in Asia and around the world Africa during nine months, before coming back to France to share our 3 social entrepreneurs experience to the general public. 3 countries GENESIS OF THE PROJECT Last January, during their second year at ESCP Europe, Jonas and Matthieu discovered their mutual interest for innovative social initiatives. Both willing « Be the change you want to make a difference through their work, they decided to launch their own project in order to discover the emerging area of social entrepreneurship. to see in the world » They began to meet some social entrepreneurs in London during their second GANDHI year at ESCP Europe. Still, they realized very quickly that meeting social entrepreneurs around the world had already been done. They then understood that it could be much more interesting and impactful to do missions with a limited number of social entrepreneurs to help them solving their challenge. Destination Changemakers was born. They then met Frédéric, graduated from the Ecole des Gobelins, now in charge of the documentary part of the project; and Noémie, student at Sciences-Po Paris, in charge of the assessment of the social impact of the Changemakers we will meet.
OUR TEAM4 MATTHIEU Student in Master in Management at ESCP Europe, I have been committed in various associative projects. Passionate by these entrepreneurship experiences, sensitive to social problems in the world, I am naturally attracted by social entrepreneurship. I am currently doing a six-month internship in the HR department of Danone in Paris. Destination Changemakers is for me an exciting opportunity to explore the world of social entrepreneurship, to better understand the leadership traits of Changemakers and to try to raise awareness that a credible alternative to the current economic model does exist. JONAS Student in Master in Management at ESCP Europe, I have always been interested in social innovation. It is mainly during my internship among the Center for Social Innovation of Gawad Kalinga that I discovered the power and interest of social entrepreneurship. I am now doing a six- month internship at Doing Good Doing Well, a sustainable development consulting agency. Destination Changemakrs is for me a unique opportunity to be part of a movement that makes a difference. I hope that this journey will be a great source of inspiration for my future professional career. NOÉMIE Student in second year at Sciences Po in Paris, I have always been concerned by social issues in the world. Before I started university, I chose to do a “gap year” during which I went working in a long-term action in a shantytown in Lima in Peru. I am also very committed within the association “Niños de Guatemala”. Being passionate about sociology and anthropology, I would like to study the social impact of the social entrepreneurs. I am very excited to work on this dimension which can help accomplishing, promoting the project and its comprehension. FRÉDÉRIC Recently graduated with a licence degree in audiovisual production in Gobelins - Paris and with a degree in multimedia communication, I aim at working in the cinema field, especially in video editing and directing. My role will be to film the team during the social road trip in order to create afterwards a documentary. For me, Destination Changemakers is the opportunity to learn more about social entrepreneurship, to be more involved in that kind of fields, and work on my first consistent video project.
