Arjun: NABET India works for the employment and empowerment of persons with disabilities. We identify jobs that can be proficiently performed by the differently-abled and get these jobs outsourced from companies and get these performed by the disabled. Differently-abled constitute over 70 million in India and over 80% of these people are unemployed. Lack of jobs makes them excessively dependent on donations and charities which is in spite of them being competent and ambitious to lead a better future. Nabet identifies this innate desire and works in partnership with leading companies to solve the problem of unemployment.

Noel: Represented Foundation seeks to address racial inequity in social impact leadership. In 2018, New York City consisted of 68% BIPOC, but BIPOC makes up only 32% of nonprofit leaders. I am devoted to achieving parity for people of color as leaders in the social impact sector—our presence in nonprofit leadership should be directly proportional to our position as beneficiaries of nonprofit services. To achieve this parity, Represented Foundation trains BIPOC community leaders to use entrepreneurship to advance racial equity in frontline issues of racial, economic, and health justice in low-income communities of color.
