Bunker Roy is a visionary. He created and established a college, that is “providing basic services and solutions to problems in rural communities, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable.” Everybody is an expert to something.
Just imagine a college, where you go just for the sake of learning things, that will support you and the whole community you’re living in. And imagine, that no one is expected to have a degree, but the only thing that matters, is that you want to learn. – And your gifts and potential are seen. As Bunker Roay says: “Look for solutions within. And listen to people that have the solutions in front of you. They’re all over the world. Don’t even worry. Don’t listen to the World Bank, listen to the people on the ground. They have all the solutions in the world.” (transcript of TED-Talk)
