I recently caught up with YANGMALI RAI, the CEO of the recently launched FundProVo to talk about the new venture. The initiative which has been inspired by two organizations: the Clinton Global Initiative Conference (CGI U) founded by the 42nd US President, Bill Clinton, which hosts a meeting where students, university representatives, topic experts and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges, and The Resolution Project based in New York which identifies and inspires young leaders through their Social Venture Challenges and Resolution Fellowships, aims to connect people from different sectors to facilitate positive social change.
Rai who was part of CGI U and a Resolution Fellow; is also a founder of Yang-Ward Foundation, a foundation working with single women of rural Nepal to empower them by engaging them in revenue generating activities. Having experience from both the business world and non-profit world, he wanted to bridge the gap and connect these two different worlds by creating a platform unified. As a result FundProVo was launched.
