亚当·布劳恩(Adam Braun)名言

I'm not a non-profit person. I think of myself as an entrepreneur who wants to work on global education.

我不是一个非营利性的人。我认为自己是一个企业家,希望从事全球教育工作。

There are many challenges in the global education ecosystem: from top-down systemic issues in how educational services are organized and delivered, to bottom-up issues of curriculum effectiveness, accountability, and human resource allocation.

全球教育生态系统面临许多挑战:从如何组织和提供教育服务的自上而下的系统性问题,到课程有效性、问责制和人力资源分配的自下而上问题。

As our values are the core to who we are as human beings, they are also the easiest way to identify and connect with others in meaningful ways. Think about it - most political campaigns are based around values. Barack Obama's 2008 election campaign galvanized millions of youth behind two very clear values - hope and change.

因为我们的价值观是我们作为人的核心,它们也是以有意义的方式与他人建立联系的最简单方式。想想看,大多数政治运动都是以价值观为基础的。巴拉克奥巴马2008年的竞选活动激励了数百万年轻人支持两个非常明确的价值观——希望和变革。

When it comes to fundraising for a social enterprise, if you are pursuing your true passion, you'll learn to become great at your craft because you'll care so much about perfecting the skills necessary to make that dream a reality.

当你为一个社会企业筹款时,如果你在追求你真正的激情,你将学会在你的手艺上变得卓越,因为你会非常关心完善使梦想成真所必需的技能。

While many in the social enterprise space often qualify themselves as 'non-profit,' these organizations should instead treat themselves as 'for-purpose.' These organizations should focus on their mission to create social good, while still treating themselves with the same commitment to rigor and discipline as the best for-profits.

虽然社会企业领域的许多人常常将自己定性为“非营利组织”,但这些组织应将自己视为“目的性组织”。这些组织应专注于创造社会福利的使命,同时仍将自己视为追求利润的最佳组织,同样致力于严格自律。

Each of the bracelets I wear is from a long trip I've taken. One is from Nicaragua. One is from Nepal. One is from Guatemala. One is from Laos. They don't come off. I walk into a lot of very high-level boardrooms now, and I present to distinguished conferences, but these bracelets remind me of the places I've been and the people I've met.

我戴的每个手镯都是我长途旅行的结果。一个来自尼加拉瓜。一个来自尼泊尔。一个来自危地马拉。一个是老挝人。它们不会掉下来。我现在走进了很多非常高级的会议室,出席了许多重要的会议,但这些手镯让我想起了我去过的地方和我遇到的人。

It always surprises me when donors who operate successful businesses assume that just building a school structure means that a community now has access to education. When creating a business, does renting an office space now mean that you're producing goods, training staff and generating revenues?

当那些经营成功企业的捐赠者认为仅仅建立一个学校结构就意味着一个社区现在可以接受教育时,我总是感到惊讶。当你创建一个企业时,租用一个办公空间是否意味着你在生产商品、培训员工和创造收入?

The single most powerful element of youth is our inability to know what's impossible.

年轻人最强大的一个因素是我们无法知道什么是不可能的。
