What is a social entrepreneur and who cares? We could all be and we should all care. That is the main message of the documentary Who Cares? which looks at how people can make a difference in a sometimes hopeless situation. The Nobel prize winner for peace, Mohammad Yunus, for example, pioneered micro credits in Bangladesh allowing impoverished people to start up their own businesses. Isaac Durojaiye built mobile toilets in Nigeria, helping to improve sanitation. Bill Drayton is the founder of ASHOKA, an organization which supports Social Entrepreneurs around the world. These are just several people in the documentary who help to explain what they do and their stories of how they became social entrepreneurs. They believe that everyone can change the earth. What helps in the world is not government or businesses, which look for profit, but the basic instinct of hope and empathy.
