Sponsor/Partner Opportunities

Openworld welcomes your help in spreading grassroots free market initiatives in impoverished communities.
For those interested in supporting new self-help opportunities, Openworld welcomes Global Resource Partnerships with individuals, policy institutes, and organizations that can contribute to global challenge offers. Donors interested in making tax-deductible contributions to support Openworld’s nonprofit activities can do so through the Explorers Foundation (tel: +1 303-744-1855). Sponsor options are also offered to supporters who seek early-stage access to new talent and development opportunities.


African projects launched

Openworld has offered support to projects in Gabon, Senegal, and Somaliland for students and jobseekers to research market-based learning and sustainable development. A presentation on Gabon's "Green Free Zone" opportunity has been released. In Somaliland, teleworkers helping the new Somaliland-based entrepreneurial school, recipient of a 37 acre land grant, have also begun producing video clips on Internet-enabled job creation solutions. An entrepreneurial academy in Senegal is also preparing video clips, with microscholarship funding, on new learning-and-earning opportunities to promote school sustainability.

Seeds of Change Offer: Microvouchers for student projects

Openworld is offering 500 microvouchers in coming months to fund digital "work-study" projects by students at entrepreneurial schools for the poor to create video clips on opportunities for sustainability. The initiative is funded by recent grants from John C. Whitehead, Jack Pearce, and the Explorers Foundation. Explore the new Seeds of Change challenge offer and apply for the Seeds of Change resources.  Initial video projects are being prepared by students at the Horizon Lanka Academy in Sri Lanka, as well as high school age students in North America.

Openworld Team Launched on

In response to failing public sector systems for delivery of services and infrastructure, Openworld has launched new pages in John Robb's resilient communities wiki to spread practical innovations for self-funding and sustainable alternatives.

Opportunities for foundations and corporations to provide "Seeds of Change" resources


Foundations and corporations can make "digital donations" useful to entrepreneurial schools and grassroots self-help organizations in developing countries, on a basis that encourages recipients to move to financial independence.

Specific opportunities to enhance Seeds of Change challenge offers include:

  • helping to fund initial offers of microscholarships for tuition and microvouchers for access to online health care resources;
  • providing work-study opportunities for students to do online research and other activities useful in preparing them for global markets;
  • offering compensated virtual internships and/or part time, project-based employment opportunities; and
  • rewarding (with targeted challenge grants) existing NGOs that take steps toward sustainability by  securing land grant endowments and advance business climate reforms to awaken assets.

Please describe your interests in the signup form if you are a foundation or corporation interested in helping expand global "Seeds of Change" challenge offers.
