Tom Cropper looks at the prickly issue of protecting the NHS and the diversity of those organisations looking to spin out: from community enterprises to profit seeking health companies.
Guest blogger Mo Girach is back by popular demand with an excellent summary of how health services can be spun out into social enterprises.
Continuing the health theme, we’ve rekindled this piece from Rod Schwartz in September last year in which he exposes the ‘elephant in the room’ for the debate around healthcare provision in the UK.

d.light’s Fifth Anniversary May 31, 2012
An amazing five years of growth, change, challenge, adventure and accolades were recently celebrated at the d.light offices around the world. Over 7 million people are enjoying d.light lights in 40 countries around the world with plans for millions more over the next several years. Sales growth in just the last year from May 2011 to the same period in 2012 has been 400%!
After field testing a variety of prototypes, d.light’s co-founders, Sam Goldman and Ned Tozun won the $250,000 DFJ Venture Challenge Prize on May 31 2007, which set them on the road to further fund raising, manufacturing, distribution and sales. In a few short years, they have extended d.light’s reach, making an impressive impact on people’s lives.

d.light Sponsors “Life Without Light” Exhibit at Rio +20
d.light is a proud sponsor of photographer Peter DiCampo’s award winning international multimedia exhibit http://lifewithoutlights.com/#/brasil-2012, which explores issues of energy poverty and energy access worldwide. The exhibit will be at Rio +20 at the Museu da Republica from June 14 to Sept. 23, 2012. Photographed entirely at night, DiCampo’s work takes viewers from rural Ghana’s off-grid villages to poor suburban English households where people cannot afford their energy bills and several stops in-between. Lack of access to reliable, safe, affordable lighting is a key factor in the social and economic impact of so-called “energy poverty.” Addressing this specific deficit can significantly reverse the situation to bring people out of poverty.
In our comfortable, “flip a switch” urban lives, it is easy to forget that 1.3 billion people – nearly a quarter of humanity – live without access to electricity (International Energy Agency – 2010). We are excited that this year, the UN has launched an initiative called Sustainable Energy for All, which aims to bring this issue to the forefront and make sustainable energy for all a reality by 2030. At d.light, we believe this represents a significant turning point in worldwide awareness and action, for which we remain committed to having a prominent role.

Durability is Key to d.light Products

Proximity, our partner in Myanmar, recently created a video that demonstrates the incredible durability of our d.light products. Watch a motorcycle drive over the S1; the S10 submerged in water; and the S250 dropped like a falling coconut from high in a palm tree.

Yes, all three d.light products keep beaming their bright light. Some viewers may be equally impressed by the skill at which the S250 carrier shimmies up the palm tree, band around his ankles.
Kopernik and d.light Micro-Franchise Project for Kenyan Girls

Kenya has a population of almost 40 million people, of which over 85% do not have electricity. They spend a significant portion of their annual income on kerosene, which is their main lighting source. The dangers of kerosene lighting are well known. At d.light, we’re partnering with Kopernik on a pilot project to train 24 young Kenyan girls between the ages of 17 and 19 to manage their own d.light micro franchise businesses in the urban slums of Nairobi.

Our partnership with Kopernik will provide a path out of poverty for these girls, empowering them to reinvest in their families and become independent entrepreneurs in their own right. In addition, it will address a major safety issue in an environment where fear of sexual violence is a nightly concern.

We anticipate that sales over 12 months will benefit close to 35,000 people with the program reaching full sustainability within 18 months of launch.

However, funds are needed to kickstart this valuable project. We hope you will join Kopernik’s supporters and many others by donating here.

Nairobi Slum Students Receive a Ray of Light

At the Gatoto Primary School in the Nairobi slum, d.light solar lanterns are making study possible for a population of almost 1,000 students, a fact that more privileged students take for granted. With the help of Sollatek, d.light’s distribution partner, and the Feltonfleet School in England, solar lanterns were donated to the school.

Children can study on site in the early morning or in the evening rather than in their homes with d.light lanterns safe, clean light. In addition to the lanterns, d.light brought in a professional storyteller to reinforce reading as a fun, recreational activity to do at night after Gatoto students have finished their studies. Check out this video, which illuminates the valuable resource our lights are providing.

New Arrival

Spring is a time of new life, new growth and new energy. All of these elements have come together in the d.light community.

Join us in wishing hearty congratulations to President Ned Tozun and his wife, Dorcas, on the arrival of their son, Jonah Sau-Yi Tozun. The delightful new addition was born on May 17th, bursting onboard at a hearty 8 lbs. 10 oz. The family is bonding and recovering from the long labor. Jonah is doing his best to train Mom and Dad to a three-hour sleep regimen.

BAM Think Tank

A year long project to connect the business as mission movement, take stock and strengthen BAM for the future.
Here are the top 3 ‘hottest topics’ in business as mission as identified by 200 Think Tank members:
1. How do we nurture a broader understanding of what mission through business means? How can we understand better the multiple bottom lines of business and how it can bring a holistic impact to communities and nations?
2. How do we successfully integrate the new mission model of BAM with more traditional mission models and strategies? How do we effectively navigate the transition?
3. How can we practically incubate new business as mission models to see growth in the numbers of new BAM enterprises? How do we fund these businesses?

Accelerating a Movement

Looking Back and Looking Forward in Business as Mission

Many of the initiatives we are involved with are about looking forward. We share resources and run events to help people launch out into business as mission. But we also know how important it is to look back. We are standing on the shoulders of those who are gone before. As we learn from what has and hasn’t worked in the past, we can go further, faster. That is what the Global Think Tank on Business as Mission is all about, providing a global forum to go deeper into effective business as mission practice, to strengthen business as mission in the future. We want to share more about some of the strategic initiatives we are involved in: the Think Tank, IBAM Impact and the Business Discipleship Training School. 
In this e.zine you can also read the article ‘Looking Backwards to Move Forward’ by Manoj Raithatha and Bridget Adams from their recent book ‘Building the Kingdom Through Business’. Our Lessons from the Edge also has a historical theme as we learn from the example of Jesse Boot.

If you want to know what business as mission looks like in practice, then come along to this unique 3 day event in Charlotte, USA in September. We deliberately limit spaces to provide an intensive, interactive environment.

Global Think Tank on Business as Mission

Wrestling with the Big Issues

The Hottest Topics in Business as Mission

The Business as Mission Think Tank is a year-long initiative designed to strengthen the business as mission movement to fulfill it’s vital role in God’s mission to the world. More than 200 practitioners and thought leaders are connecting together from around the world to grapple with some of the biggest issues in business as mission, ending with the Global Congress on Business as Mission in April 2013. As we learn and share from experiences of the past and build connections and networks for the future, we will invigorate the movement and multiply the impact of business and business people for God’s Kingdom. 
We surveyed the 200 Think Tank members so far and asked them the question: ‘What is the hottest topic in the BAM movement today?’ Or in other words, what is the one question they would most like to see answered in business as mission. See the left hand column for the top 3 answers and read more for the complete list of top 10 ‘hottest’ issues or themes.

PANELIST 
If you’re helping to drive social innovation within any sector, we’re interested in talking to you. SOCAP keynotes and panelists range from CEOs, government representatives, startup founders, activists, artists, and more. Because SOCAP is a community-built event, panelists are asked to pay a percentage of the ticket price.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR 
Entrepreneurs are at the heart of SOCAP, and therefore there are many opportunities available in support of innovators who are putting their time, money, and resources to scaling social solutions. If you apply, you will be considered for a number of opportunities including a full scholarship, participation in our Innovation Showcase, Pitch Sessions and more. >>> APPLY HERE

VOLUNTEER 
We’re looking for top-notch masters students, self-starter entrepreneurs, non-profit representatives, and mid-career changers to play an integral role by assisting at the conference. While on duty a volunteer’s first priority are the tasks he/she is responsible for, but volunteers may fully participate in the conference outside of work shifts including attending sessions, meals and all conference events. >>> APPLY HERE

SUPPORTING SPONSORS
We have many high-value, low-touch ways for your organization to partner with and support the SOCAP community including: ticket packages, scholarships for entrepreneurs, and programatic engagement. If you’re interested in partnering with us financially, please contact Mike Moss & Jonathon Axtell. >>> EMAIL HERE

Each year, SOCAP convenes hundreds of innovators from across the globe who are breaking new ground in social impact. If you’re interested in covering the event as press, we’d be honored to support you in telling their stories. >>> APPLY HERE
