The following statement is made to clarify NPI’s added charitable focus, justification of efforts, specific goals, and objectives as related to NPI’s social entrepreneurial activities:
Primary Problems: Nearly one-third of the world’s population (over 2 billion people) live in extreme poverty ------ with most of the poor living in political, social, and economic isolation from the nations in which they reside. Less than 02 percent of “aid” funds or charitable contributions actually reach these populations. Many of these same peoples are providing the basic support and manpower needed to sustain terrorist and narcoterrorist organizations. Under these conditions, acts of terrorism should be expected to continue for many years. As the terrorist groups gain access to nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons, terrorism will become a much greater threat. The terrorism caused by new exotic, pandemic diseases are expected to increase so long as many poor populations continue to provide the “seedbed” for the responsible viruses and bacterium.
Secondary Problems: Resources available to charities have flattened or declined. Needs and the number of people in need --and the number of charities-- have greatly increased. Government “aid” has often gone to support the dictators and oligarchies that sustain their power by acting to keep most of their own people in poverty. Foundations and other donors generally focus on giving to meet specific local needs within a special, privileged, and/or protected environment. In addition, most donors are suffering from “solicitation fatigue” due to the high number of requests for donations. Politicians have been more and more inclined to subvert public funds for use as “political pork” for the special interest that help keep them in power. The War on Terrorism has only heightened the differences between wealthy and poor populations/ nations. Terrorist groups have used all the above confusion to their advantage, and they continue to operate “fraudulent” charities to raise funds to support an array of terrorist activities.
Solution: In view of the above problems, NPI will expand its capabilities to help the poor by using its innovative technologies to create social enterprises that generate earned net revenue. These social enterprises will also act to assist the poor by providing affordable self-help, self-sufficiency technologies and products. As a matter of policy, NPI shall not own any part of the social enterprises it helps to create. NPI’s revenue will be derived from royalty obtained from the license and use of NPI’s 63 proprietary technologies. (Subject royalty will usually be 03 percent of annual wholesale gross income.) Part of the licensing agreements shall include NPI’s training and technical support for various for-profits engaged in enhancing NPI’s social mission. These for-profits are also expected to provide substantial net revenue (royalty) to help support NPI’s various charitable activities. (Not less than 90 percent of NPI’s royalty income shall be used in direct support of NPI’s charitable activities, with upwards of 10 percent being used to support NPI.) Using NPI’s innovative entrepreneurial structure, social investors may purchase stock in any NPI sponsored for-profit and expect a good return on their investments. (Investor return is derived from 97 percent of annual wholesale gross for-profit income). NPI recognizes that other social entrepreneurial charities will be organized and operated differently to meet their own particular needs. (NPI’s unique social entrepreneurial structure is not intended to establish policies for others.)
