May we think for small SEEP fund? Each member could save small weekly/fornightly from her/his own luxury even daily expenditure. Each member would be in thinking how much I could be less expensive. I do believe we could save minimum from our own expenditure may be quarter/half/one dollar weekly. That would be collected duly and used for piloting new idea in one village any corner of globe.
Fund must be saved from daily expenditure (reduce cellphone call, private car use, fast food, junk food etc etc) that wouldn’t hamper other family member life. Member like me ultra poor could save from his/her own travel cost 05 to 10 BDT and weekend it wuld one dollar easily.
Now we are 2746 member and weekly we could have $2746 amount and monthly $10984. By $2000 we could start work any one village of third world country.
Let's we try to save one Taka/dollar/pound/yen ............FROM daily expenditure just remind self, “let live simply that other could simply live.”
