Development is complex. Yet we treat it as a simple equation. ‘Money in = Benefits out’. And it’s not adding up.
Democracy is multi-faceted – and needs to be fully localised – But we still push one-size fits all. And many countries can’t wear it.
Governments need the private sector to end poverty. And they both need civil society and international agencies. Yet we all continue to work in glorious isolation. Building monuments to mediocrity.
And it’s the poorest of the poor who suffer most, whose potential remains untapped – whose voices remain unheard.
We’ve had enough.
We are The Wellspring Initiative. Join us.
The Wellspring Initiative brings together entrepreneurs, experts and thought leaders from different continents under one roof and around a common passion:
To rethink government, the private sector and civil society…
To unlock potential through dialogue, collaboration and ground-breaking development strategies…
To reclaim democracy and development, so that they really deliver for the poor…
