The Paradigm Project by Greg Spencer
Static Preview

Greg Spencer presented at the TBN National Conference 2011, speaking about the Paradigm Project, a for-profit business providing healthy, efficient stoves to Africa that drastically reduces a family's consumption of wood and inhalation of smoke and improves their economic stability.

Not only does their business help the poor, it leverages billions of dollars of value in the carbon markets, reduces deforestation, and changes the paradigm faced by many that creating profits from the poor cannot profit for the poor.
