AMGK/CNS has set up an office in Cairo, Egypt which will serve as a hub for Neohumanist studies in the Middle East. As a first project KAPROS - Kahira Progressive Studies is focusing on the establishment of a school (KAPROS - Kahira Progressive School) from K-12 with attached teacher training facilities. In its first phase KAPROS will offer seminars, conferences and courses on holistic education and connect with local sustainable development initiatives.
Social entrepreneurship is surely a force that will shape the future of human society. What does it mean? What is it? How can it be a force of social change?
Imagine the mentality that runs big enterprises or that builds some of the greatest fortunes on the planet. Imagine the skills and power of leadership and achievement that the CEO's of big corporation have. Now imagine the same mentality, the same skills and power working for the welfare of society. This is indeed a new paradigm based on the idea that the best “business” is to truly serve society.
I am sure that most human beings will say that they would like to contribute to society. But seldom are we willing to sacrifice our whole life for it. But what if you could make a career in social service and get your salary? What if you could serve and at the same time make your living and be able to provide quality of life to your family? Why do social service and making a living have to be incompatible things? Who told us so? Providing quality water in an age where water is poisoned is true social service. Providing true education in this age of dogma and indoctrination is true service. Why shouldn't society pay for it? Social service does not necessarily mean free. Why not make a system where those who can afford to pay, do so for the education of their kids and also for underprivileged kids? Isn't this indeed part of the education process?
Imagine the mentality of great achievers directed towards the all-round development of society. Why should we not work in this spirit? KAPROS stands as a true social entrepreneurship project. It is a corporation for true education, for true development of the human spirit.
