A major portion of the world’s population doesn’t have the opportunity to prosper. That hasn’t stopped some from taking steps that work around barriers to be economically included. The Connectors Project began with an attempt to swing the camera around: to look at the challenges of those with a way to go on their journey to inclusion from their perspective. The project has revealed that these subjects’ progress on those journeys is in direct relation to their contact with Connectors. Find the Connectors, and, just as important, find the Connectors at the right moment, and the relatively excluded can move along the journey to full inclusion in the economy of their municipalities and their countries, and, thanks to technology, the global economy as well.
