Latest Poverty Stories by Tej Kohli

To end extreme poverty, we must also end blindness

One of the underreported tragedies of our time is that nearly 90% of the world’s blind live in low-income countries where poverty and blindness perpetuate in a descending cycle. The main cause of this often needless and frequently avoidable blindness is cataracts, which affect 95 million people worldwide. In low- and middle-income countries cataracts account for 50% of all blindness, compared to just 5% of blindness in the West.

The Philanthropy Handbook by Tej Kohli (Chapter Nine – Can It All Go Wrong?)

I hope that throughout this handbook I have already made clear that there are many reasons that you might refrain from philanthropy. I don’t wish to encourage you to retreat into a life of easy privacy when you could be using your time and wealth to make an impact on the world. I promote caution simply to ensure that your eyes are open to the fact that in becoming a philanthropist, you will be laying yourself open to new forms of scrutiny and critique despite your good intentions.

Mission & PURPOSE

Why #TejTalks

The purpose of #TejTalks is to create a single online resource of aggregated content that is built around subjects which are important to technologist and investor Tej Kohli. Inspired by GatesNotes.com, the #TejTalks mission is to one day enable individuals and institutions to perform a ‘deep dive’ into our chosen topics and to become immersed in a diverse range of opinions and insights from many different thinkers from a variety of perspectives.

Tej Kohli may have provided the nucleus of content around which #TejTalks was first launched, but the long-term purpose of #TejTalks is to celebrate diversity in opinion and to give a platform to different thinkers and voices. #TejTalks particularly seeks to aggregate and share content from individuals from non-traditional backgrounds and those whose life experiences have been lived outside of normal Western conventions.

We know that positive change stalls when we attempt to postulate an answer without first asking the difficult questions. The purpose of #TejTalks is to enable deep analysis and inflection and to inspire individual actions and changes which can improve not just our own lives, but also the lives of those around us. #TejTalks also explores major challenges and advocates for solutions which might collectively make the world a better place.
