From Executive Producer David Davis:

The people you will meet in this television series and on the pages of this Web site are nothing short of revolutionary. Their vision, their determination and their social conscience have already affected the world profoundly.

People like Kailash Satyarthi, Inderjit Khurana, Fabio Rosa, and Mimi Silbert know all about facing insurmountable odds. Kailash Satyarthi has liberated nearly 40,000 enslaved children in India, and is dedicated to eliminating forced child labor entirely. You can read more about his work here.

Mimi Silbert's Delancey Street Foundation has successfully rehabilitated more than 14,000 drug addicts and criminals, using innovative techniques to help them reenter society as successful, taxpaying citizens leading legitimate and productive lives. The Delancey Street story is here.

There is more on all of our stories here on our Web site.

Using canny business sense and a commitment to improving the human condition, these heroic individuals and others like them are leading the way toward real social change.

Social entrepreneurship is new, and it promises great things. It begins, ultimately, when you follow your heart. Take our quiz to find out how you can make a difference, and you can also try your hand at building a business with our interactive game.

Working on this series has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I know I speak for all of us who have worked on this very special project. We hope that the stories we tell will inspire you to look around and see what you can do to help. This Web site is a great place to begin.

Sincerely,

David Davis Signature
