Need: 5th Global Social Business Summit in KL, Malaysia

The Global Social Business Summit is the worldwide leading forum for social business to spread awareness of social business and to foster discussions and collaborations for new social business ventures.

A social business is a non-dividend company created to solve a social problem. Like an NGO, it has a social mission and like a firm it generates its own revenues to cover costs. Investors may recoup their investment. All profits are reinvested for growth and innovation, or to seed new social business ventures.

A day prior to the Summit, there is a Young Challengers Meeting which is a competitive event with limited seats. For my proposal on Mapping Gender Based Violence, I have successfully reserved a seat. I intend to raise awareness on gender-based violence and to receive mentoring and funds for the mapping project so that I can launch it soon.

The Meeting and the Summit is expected to take place between 6th-9th November, 2013.

This is where I would need your help.
The total cost of participation would be:

5th Global Social Business Summit

Round-trip airfare (Dhaka – Kuala Lumpur - Dhaka)
http://bit.ly/XZhxpz $ 463
Accommodation (148 Malaysian Ringgit * 5 nights) 3-star Hotel Sentral $ 230
Registration fee (125 Euros) $ 172
Daily Subsistence Allowance ($ 200 * 5) $ 1,000
Net Total $ 1,865

Please send me a message if you can contribute to my participation.

Prayers

I am a poor solo parent of one boy and a lowly public servant. It pains me because I am unable to support a laudable cause such as yours. What I can offer are my prayers that someone would answer your call. Just trust in God.

Thank you!

Dear Lydia,

Thank you so much for your kind comment! Your prayers are sufficient to elevate my spirit!

You could also help this cause by circulating this news in your network.

Kind regards,
Monica

Yes!

I shall circulate your appeal, dear Monica. I can empathize because I was in the same situation like yours last Feb of this year. I did not know any better that I can seek help through World Pulse. Now I know how WP can help those in need.

Continue to have faith in God. Claim that He will let you go!

Waiver Received

Dear WP Community,

I received a message today informing me that the registration fee for Young Challengers has been subsidized by a benevolent sponsor. The fee is now 125 Euros. This entry will be updated with this amount.

However, to avail this subsidy, participants need to register by 25th of October, 2013.

Please help me to raise this fund!

Warmly,
Monica
