FREE language lessons in Auckland
I was at the World Cafe event last night, where social entrepreneur Ray Avery of emondiale.org/Home” target=”_blank”>Medicine Mondiale spoke. This guy managed to bring down the cost of cataract surgery from $5K per eye here in Auckland to $6 per eye in Africa. He also discovered some way of mixing waste products from chicken and kiwifruit farms and created protein extracts
for kids. Amazing. Ray is working on a number of projects that will revolutionise the medical arena. Ray demonstrated to us that what is lacking is not money, Buy now viagra but bright ideas and perseverence. His products were borne out of necessity.
We have such talent living here, and I've not heard of him prior to the event. I'm embarassed. More needs to be done to get these success stories out there. Well done Asia NZ Foundation and AkCity for organising this awesome event.
Our discussions afterwards focussed very much on cultural diversity in Auckland, and how leaders can harness cultural diversity.
At Euroasia, we believe one way we can better understand people who are different from us is to learn their language. As it happens, Euroasia is putting on some free taster lessons next week. Feel free to tell your friends.
