Elevate Society is an initiative to empower people around the world by supporting them in their entrepreneurship. It has been created by normal everyday people who have chosen to contribute – small or big.
We believe elevating and empowering humanity is key. By helping the world, we not only help ourselves, but also contribute to something greater than ourselves — that’s what brings true fulfillment.
We’ve all heard the proverb “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime”. What often happens with charity is that it leads to dependency rather than empowerment. Lending through Kiva, on the other hand, takes the whole “Teach a Man To Fish” one level further because it does not assume we know better than the local entrepreneurs. There is no “teaching” involved, just simple empowerment.
