Social imbalances are a dangerous consequence of living societies. They are often magnified in times of crisis and, if unresolved, lead inevitably to violence because at the core of our humanity is the ingrained notion that we are all equal. We at Erol embrace that notion.
We seek opportunities to change the system by funding new models for sustainable development, democracy and cultural evolution. We believe our best opportunity for impact is to partner with the innovators and change agents who are working on the front lines where the circumstances are most severe. We will provide them with the risk capital to validate their models and if successful, connect them with our network as they scale their solutions.
Erol has renewed its commitment to Uplift, a multi-year initiative to lift 1 million women and their families out of extreme poverty by 2020. Uplift will be a significant part of Erol’s Equality of Chances portfolio for the period 2016-18.
