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.

What do you have to show for yourselves? Are there any deliverables that openworld has provided? Are you willing to to disclose your sources of funding? You claim a commitment for freedom but is this just another front for an ideology? I cannot gather this from your site and am curious.

Dear Mark

I am very glad that you have added the sign section to this web. Since working with you in 2001 on enhancing the Vietnam Competitiveness, I have obtained a substantial experience. We have never seen each other, but we communicated to each other by emailing. Without mutual trust and belief, the Vietnam Competitiveness Enhancement Project would never come to a succesful stage. Your working style and professionalism have made success to the Prjoject.

Apart from corporate consulting activities, I would like to inform you that I have my own centre which is specialised in translating documents from English into Vietnamese and Vietnamese into English. This is ranked the top number one group of translators in Vietnam.

We very much look forward to your further cooperation in the future in terms of corporate consulting and translation services.

All of your querries can be sent to or call me on 090 323 0554.

Best regards

With the abysmal failure of aid in Africa, I strongly believe your initiative is what my continent needs most.Money in the hands of an individual is more resourceful than that of government. My organisation should be glad if you can open your doors to us.

I am all for an "open world", because real freedom, creativity and initiative can prosper only in an open society.

After working for about 40 years in public, private and voluntary sectors in India, I am now spending most of my waking hours in surfing, networking and internet marketing.

If Open World can somehow ensure broadband connectivity in rural pockets, autosurfing for cash can become a viable means of livelyhood for rural folk in India and the rest of South-East Asia.

I am ready to teach a core team in each village for earning livelyhood through internet, provided always-on broadband connectivity can somehow be made available to them. This will not only create work/jobs where these are needed most but will also reduce influx into towns and cities, resulting in more green life everywhere.

My address is: WW-85 IInd Floor, Malibu Towne, Gurgaon-122001, Haryana, India.Phone No.9818415736.
