Change starts with one: you!
Billions in Change is a movement to save the world by creating and implementing solutions to the most basic global problems – water, energy and health. Doing so will raise billions of people out of poverty and improve the lives of everyone – rich and poor.
Inspired to change the world with us? We don’t want your money, but we need your voice. So tell others about Rain Maker, Free Electric and Renew. Share the Billions in Change film. By making noise, policy makers and elected officials can’t help but take notice.
Manoj Bhargava moved to the United States from his native India at 14, dropped out of Princeton after his freshman year, and spent 12 years pursuing spiritual enlightenment at an Indian ashram. He launched a business career in his thirties and has since built several successful companies, most notably Living Essentials, maker of the dietary supplement 5-hour ENERGY®. Bhargava’s stake in Living Essentials is currently valued at more than $3 billion. He has already committed $1 billion to Knowledge Medical Research Charitable Trust and Rural India Supporting Trust, two personal foundations that fund medical research in the United States and more than 400 charities in India. Much of Bhargava’s giving supports hospitals for the poor and education for disadvantaged women in rural areas.
