Doing Well, Doing Good!

My daughter Sahar decided to invest her time and energy in a social project called Maziwa in Kenya after completing her MBA at Kellogg and having worked as a brand manager for Reckitt Benckiser & Johnson & Johnson. With J&J she managed five countries in Europe!

Maziwa is a hybrid social enterprise, incorporated as a non-profit entity in Canada and the US and as a for-profit company in Kenya. Maziwa’s commitment is to reinvest the vast majority of its profits back into their organization to achieve sustainable growth and fulfill its social mission.

Maziwa has been selected as a finalist in MIT Solve. There are 3 components to the competition:

– Several start-ups will be selected for additional grants worth $2 million (from Gates Foundation, etc.)

-5 teams in each category will be selected as “Solvers” to win $10,000 each & gain access to their strong community.

– And, finally (here’s where you can help), Finalists with the most votes will win the Community Award. You can vote for her here:

The deadline is Sept. 29! If you believe in doing well and doing good and can spend 3 mins to vote & share with your network that would be greatly appreciated!! TY
