African projects launched

Openworld has offered support to projects in Gabon, Senegal, and Somaliland for students and jobseekers to research market-based learning and sustainable development. A presentation on Gabon's "Green Free Zone" opportunity has been released. In Somaliland, teleworkers helping the new Somaliland-based entrepreneurial school, recipient of a 37 acre land grant, have also begun producing video clips on Internet-enabled job creation solutions. An entrepreneurial academy in Senegal is also preparing video clips, with microscholarship funding, on new learning-and-earning opportunities to promote school sustainability.

Seeds of Change Offer: Microvouchers for student projects

Openworld is offering 500 microvouchers in coming months to fund digital "work-study" projects by students at entrepreneurial schools for the poor to create video clips on opportunities for sustainability. The initiative is funded by recent grants from John C. Whitehead, Jack Pearce, and the Explorers Foundation. Explore the new Seeds of Change challenge offer and apply for the Seeds of Change resources.  Initial video projects are being prepared by students at the Horizon Lanka Academy in Sri Lanka, as well as high school age students in North America.

Openworld Team Launched on

In response to failing public sector systems for delivery of services and infrastructure, Openworld has launched new pages in John Robb's resilient communities wiki to spread practical innovations for self-funding and sustainable alternatives.

Sponsor/Partner Opportunities

Openworld welcomes your help in spreading grassroots free market initiatives in impoverished communities.
For those interested in supporting new self-help opportunities, Openworld welcomes Global Resource Partnerships with individuals, policy institutes, and organizations that can contribute to global challenge offers. Donors interested in making tax-deductible contributions to support Openworld’s nonprofit activities can do so through the Explorers Foundation (tel: +1 303-744-1855). Sponsor options are also offered to supporters who seek early-stage access to new talent and development opportunities.

Opportunities for policy institutes to participate in "Seeds of Change" offers


Economic policy institutes can play a key role in helping awaken dormant assets in impoverished communities, by offering resources to improve the quality of learning in entrepreneurial schools, and advising on business climate reforms that can lift the value of land grant sites for sustainable development.

Specific opportunities to assist include:

  • offering online work-study projects and "virtual internships" on freedom and sustainability-related topics
  • proofreading and graphically enhancing "eLessons" produced by student work/study teams in entrepreneurial schools on topics related to economic growth
  • sharing practical insights (through video clips and slides) on local business climate improvements that can benefit eAcademies, eCenters, and "quickstart" free zones, as well as residents of surrounding areas
  • preparing video clips (playable on a new generation of cell phones and low-cost projectors) that can spread understanding at grassroots levels of entrepreneurship and market-based development strategies.

If you are a policy institute sharing Openworld aims and values, please use the signup form to help expand and deepen the "Seeds of Change" offers for communities seeking freedom to prosper.
