Episode 1: Dreams of Sanctuary

The series begins its global exploration of social entrepreneurs with a look at those who are helping the desperate, the destitute and the determined to make a new beginning - from Moses Zulu's home and school for AIDS orphans in Zambia to Mimi Silbert's San Francisco-based Delancey Street foundation, which helps drug addicts, criminals and the homeless turn their lives around. This episode also travels to India to follow Kailash Satyarthi on a harrowing slave camp raid, where seconds might make the difference between life and death. "It is not possible to change a society without starting from the bottom, from the villages and communities," says Satyarthi, as he explains his plan to eradicate slavery in India through a nationwide network of child-friendly villages and a line of carpets that are made without forced labor or child slavery.
