Create a New World for All of Us
Dr. Muhammad Yunus established the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh in 1983, fueled by the belief that credit is a fundamental human right. His objective was to help poor people escape from poverty by providing loans on terms suitable to them and by teaching them a few sound financial principles so they could help themselves. The Grameen Bank has advanced to the forefront of a burgeoning world movement toward eradicating poverty through microlending. Replicas of the Grameen Bank model operate in more than 100 countries worldwide. Dr. Yunus won the Nobel eace Prize in 2006.
Dr. Yunus says that the Fuji Declaration reminds us of the unlimited potential within each and every human being. The world has diverted people toward money centric selfish pursuits but with the selflessness inherent within each member of humanity we can together become a tremendous force to change the world. Fuji Declaration brings back the balance we have lost in the world. In November 2015 the Nobel Laureate Summit in Atlanta will feature the Fuji Declaration as a platform to bring about change in the world.
