Social Vision - Social Justice in an Unequal Society: Creating a Social Awareness
A fundamental question relevant to current societal context: what kind of society do we want - for us, for our children, for our grandchildren?
The answer, whatever it may be, is going to guide us to find solutions to many problems which are responsible for social injustice.
Changing the shape of social landscape in a transitional and ephemeral society is a major challenge. Embracing the concept for a social change implies collective social responsibility, assisting disadvantaged and marginalised people - poor, disabled, and deprived - irrespective of culture, gender, race and faith. Speak for those who do not have a voice, or muted voice, to influence those who are responsible for their wellbeing. Social responsibility is shared - corporate businesses, communities, institutions, and individuals - in creating a better and fair society.
Our purpose is to connect all these diverse elements, linking and bonding them together for a better world. Social Visions base has been expanded over the last two years, increasingly supported by like minded people and followers on social media. Social vision provides an inspirational momentum for a change; a better world, more equal and fair.
Also at the more practical level, a different spectrum, we have set up a programme in Bangladesh focussed on poverty mitigation, and lifelong education among women. Anecdotal evidence suggests that women are our best investment because of their high rates of success in mitigating poverty. Our project has been successful thus far: several students will start the life transforming change of attending university, with one of them already choosing medicine. Further, our programme also includes a small software development company providing training to young people to help increase their employment prospects to support their families. 17 families are employed with Social Vision, affecting the lives of 68 people.
The future - 2018
We are planning to extend into the Philippines and India with our female education programmes.
