Imagine a world...
A world where most or all people are literate
A world where education is par for the course
A world where woman are treated as equals
A world where all people have access to (investment) opportunities
In this world children will grow up in a family, and raised in a home their parents own.
Because of this, they will be healthier and have access to healthcare facilities and caregivers.
They live in less stressful environments with less conflict in their homes.
Imagine a world where 6 billion people on the planet who currently live in poverty can live a better life ...
...Even if we can only help a billion in the next 5 years
Imagine that world
#WEALTHMOVEMENT aims to create that world
Economic and income inequality is a serious global challenge affecting not only developing, but also developed nations. The World Economic Forum calls the gap between the richest and poorest, the biggest risk to global stability.
One direct effect of this is the growing number of people living in slums around the world. Slums, which are often on the doorstep of affluent neighborhoods but prefer to be overlooked.
#WEALTHMOVEMENT aims to lead the way in creating global wealth for all through real estate crowdfunding.
The purpose of #WEALTHMOVEMENT is to empower 1 billion of the world's population across various income sectors through access to real estate crowdfunding.
The spirit of Ubuntu, an ancient African tradition as embodied by Nelson Mandela, is based on the premise that we are only who we are because of other people. It means that we are far stronger together. Translated it says, "I am, because of you" and implies, "People are people because of other people." This is the basis of crowdfunding and the very foundation of #WEALTHMOVEMENT.
The founders and staff of Wealth Migrate came across Bongi as part of the Lemonade day event that was held in Knysna in July 2015. Lemonade Day is a charity that teaches children the skills of entrepreneurship. Scott Picken brought this idea from America to South Africa and given that he lives in Knysna ran the pilot project during the 2015 Oyster festival.
We understand that high school is 5 years and that Bongi’s family do not have the resources to be able to ensure that he is able to stay at Oakhill. We are committed to being with Bongi over the next 5 years and encouraging him to ensure that he takes this opportunity with both hands and prospers. Scott is also going to mentor him and when he is done with school; if he wants to go into business he will be able to do so with our support. Right now we are focused on 2018 and believe that with determination and hard work that 2017 onward will not be an issue in terms of fees and requirements.
