Ive had big changes in my career. GGF gave me the confidence to start this journey. @unikkoland. 2016 GGF Alumni, Roco Gonzlez, was inspired during a trip to the Mumbai slum of Dharavi, observing how junk was collected and transformed into new objects throughout the community. Motivated to bring this creative process to Buenos Aires, she co-founded @daravifabrica & @papastudioco, a sustainable design company that began by producing objects and fashion accessories from discarded buttons. To create meaningful impact, her 2 ventures work with organizations that employ and empower women and people with disabilities, while practicing environmental consciousness through its use of up-cycled materials. #GGFalumni . . . . . #globalgoodfund #alumni #greca #papastudio #fridayfeeling #upcycle #fashion #followfriday #ff #fashionfriday #design #recycle #sustainablefashion #buenosaires #SocEnt #leadership #leaders #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #socialentrepreneur #inspire #entrepreneurlife #impact #socialimpact #changetheworld #weekendwarriors #qotd #quoteoftheday #quote

If GGF could make an introduction to any alive person, it would be John Maxwell."" @blessed.mb At #ggfsummit17 2015 GGF Alumni got his wish. Born into a family of farmers in rural Nigeria, Mene Blessing, is deeply passionate about making a difference in Africas agricultural space. Taking action, Mene founded UNFIRE, a social enterprise that produces low-cost, nutritious animal feed derived from agricultural waste. Through UNFIREs community-based model, local youth groups are involved in the collection of fair-trade materials, and rural women are recruited, trained and empowered to run their own businesses as vendors supplying and selling these products. #GGFalumni . . . . . #globalgoodfund #alumni #tbt #throwbackthursday #farm #farmer #africa #SocEnt #leadership #leaders #makeadifference #agriculture #fairtrade #youth #women #community #faith #spiritual #ambition #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #giveback #socialentrepreneur #inspire #entrepreneurlife #impact #socialimpact #changetheworld

Its not about how smart you are or how great the idea is. Its about execution, dedication and passion. @nachomeetsbagel. 2016 Global Good Fund alumni, Daniel Bin, is Founder and CEO of Monk, a mobile financial security platform that encourages social circles to save, borrow and lend together. Dannys entrepreneurial career began at the age of 17 when he founded his first E-Commerce auction site selling textbooks. He spent time in various finance positions on Wall Street before joining the #GoogleHQ team to purse his passion for technology, eventually returning to his roots by creating businesses of his own. #GGFalumni . . . . . #globalgoodfund #alumni #getmonkapp #wisdomwednesday #wordsofwisdom #SocEnt #leadership #leaders #motivation #dedication #passion #opportunity #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #socialentrepreneur #dreambig #entrepreneurlife #impact #socialimpact #changetheworld #quote #qotd #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #quotes

""One of the reasons I love The Global Good Fund is because you listen. You guys have clearly heard our feedback, and we so appreciate the support you offer us again and again. Leah Filler. GGF alumni, @fillllllll is a founding team member and the Director of Global Community Engagement at @lavamae, a mobile shower service for the homeless in San Francisco and LA. By repurposing retired transportation buses into bathrooms on wheels, @lavamae works to deliver dignity, unlock opportunity and seed hope. Shortly after moving her life from Boston to the Bay Area, Leah stumbled upon an article about @lavamae, fell in love with the project and has since been an integral part of bringing the vision to life. #GGFalumni . . . . . #globalgoodfund #alumni #lavamae #SocEnt #leadership #leaders #gratitude #homeless #hygiene #dignity #opportunity #quote #qotd #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #tuesdaymotivation #makeadifference #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #socialentrepreneur #transformation #community #dreambig #entrepreneurlife #impact #socialimpact #changetheworld
