Schwab explains that they "sensed that a distinct, more innovative approach to alleviating problems associated with poverty and social and environmental challenges was emerging."
Schwab adds that they saw a new generation of pioneers who channeled their passion, resources, creativity and sense of injustice and dedicated themselves to finding ways to achieve real change in their contexts and in the world around them.
