Hi NorCalPCA,I direct D-Prize, an organization which funds new ventures in developing countries. We believe the world has already discovered cheap, effective ways to eradicate poverty – but those proven solutions have yet to be distributed to millions of people.We are offering up to $20,000 to anyone who can launch a new organization that improves distribution of proven poverty solutions. Winning social entrepreneurs will use seed capital and receive mentorship to launch a three month pilot. Current challenges include topics in girl's education, energy, and global health.Details, an application packet, and profiles of past winners can be found at www.d-prize.org.>> Our competition just launched, and RPCVs have the proven passion and skills needed to succeed. Can you forward this announcement to your colleagues and anyone else who might be interested?My best,Nicholas--
