What happens when Mother Teresa is your role model? Over a billion people see your work! In Episode 81, learn from Molly’s guest—extraordinary social innovator Firdaus Kharas, master of social change via animations that compel viewers to accept his messages and come to their own conclusion to change for the better. In Calcutta, Firdaus—influenced more by his pioneering, attorney Mother than Father (wanting him to be an accountant!)—saw poverty firsthand and knew his destiny was to do something about it. Aspiring to see 100 countries (now at 146…), he arrived in Pennsylvania as the 1st ever Bombay Rotary Club exchange student. Studying human rights, researching methods of torture, and working in Canada’s immigration/refugee affairs were part of his schooling to improve the human condition. Believing that “people everywhere matter,” “we are one human family” and “we’re all creative beings”, Firdaus talks of his eternal optimism, helping him confront the atrocities and injustices he aims to end. Motivated by impact, never money, he recounts his journey to build his media company and leverage his creativity—a breakthrough with UNICEF and epiphany of the power of humor in mid 2000, when his Three Amigos animated condoms appeared in 150 countries—widely credited for assisting the stopping the spread of HIV aids. His topics are many: human rights, health education/disease prevention, children at risk, environment, preserving culture, sexual violence, racism, to name a few. He talks of his two kinds of animation: behavior change communications and catalyst videos to ignite discussion that drive social change, and notes the irony of today’s instant two-way communications bringing us closer, while populism that divides. How Firdaus is driven by his values inspires as much as his passion to make the world a better place for all. Tune in to hear how one human makes a world of difference, inspiring us to know no boundaries and to commit to taking action so that all can be safe, seen and heard, and our true and best selves.
