Have you a 100 year plan

Many charities choose to cut back in legacy/bequest programs because they won't see the money in a short time frame. 

I am at IFC listening to a big vision from Japan aimed at having profound impact on the future of Africa. 

"When you grow rice you need one year
When you grow trees you need ten years
When you change society you need 100 years"

Ashinaga, an orphan charity in Japan has a 100 year vision led by a 79 year old man. 

That is forward thinking. 

Yukichi Okazaki presenting at IFC got a few of us thinking about our charities futures.
