Welcome to the Billions Rising Foundation
Our mission here at the Billions Rising, Self-Reliance Foundation is to support people and organizations who create sustainable solutions to poverty and empower people to become self-reliant.
We believe that poverty will be eliminated through education, action, innovation and collaboration. We spotlight those who give a hand up rather than a handout. We highlight the efforts of people around the world through our brand new television show, dynamic blog site, social media, monthly newsletter, our popular radio show and our bestselling book.
Our Television news show “Billions Rising, Out of Poverty” is our most recent platform for highlighting the work that others are doing to end poverty in sustainable ways. We have created a new and powerful model for delivering “news.” Billions Rising Foundation believes that the role of the news media is being redefined. People Do want to see positive news, instead of tragedy and sensationalism.
Each episode on our sister website BillionsRising.tv brings wide, international support for our guests, highlighting the amazing work they are doing while informing our viewers know how to get involved to support that work. At the same time, we deliver a compelling message to our audience: The world is filled with good news. The world is filled with inspiring people helping others. Each of us has the power to make the world a better place.
