Driving poor people’s access to markets through new technology
Today marks a big step in tapping the true power of business and new technology to lift people out of poverty. WorldofGood.com by eBay is a brand new marketplace that enables small-scale entrepreneurs from across the developing world to sell their products online.
This is an important step into the world of "Development 2.0" - where the smart, young minds of those who created and use social networking, new media and new technology, are being applied to a clear social objective. Sharing photos is fine, but what is really exciting is thinking about what we could achieve if we could harness our collective efforts to do something amazing - like fighting world poverty.
