Common Question Phrasings

  1. Theory of Change: how will your organization play its role in achieving your mission. - Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation


Based on the observation that technology can fundamentally improve people's living conditions, we endeavor to expand access to wealth-generating machinery in order to widen the distribution of goods and practical skills, and, as a result, elevate standards of living the world over. By sharing the designs and plans for building machinery openly, we believe that others will be encouraged to build their own productive technology and that this will decrease poverty.

We believe that people are more careful stewards of the environment when they can directly experience it for themselves. The rampant environmental degradation that is so prevalent today is only made possible by the remoteness of the problem. By encouraging the use of local natural resources and the relocalization of industrial production, we believe that people will act more responsibly toward natural ecosystems.
