In this day and age, there are wars raging all over the world because of closed minded people who are intolerant and blinded by their prejudice, bigotry and lopsided biased and that is why it is hard for them to accept the fact that there are millions of people that are different from them. Instead of channeling all their time, money and efforts in lifting their fellowmen from the muck of poverty, hunger, and desolation, some people go to great lengths to destroy the very fabric of humanity by waging senseless wars and causing tremendous bloodshed just because of their unreasonable, illogical and archaic beliefs.
Good thing that there are companies like SIIRD or Singapore-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation that work tirelessly in bridging the gap between different countries and communities in order to improve the lives and solve the problems that their people are facing. Instead of developing weapons of mass destruction that destroy countless of families and kills innumerable innocent victims, their team of brilliant researchers, scientists, and innovators in different fields and disciplines have dedicated their lives in collaborating and cooperating to make the world a better place.
They even hand out small business grants to aspiring business owners and budding entrepreneurs to give them a fighting chance in life so that they can reach their highest goals and loftiest dreams in life. As the saying goes, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day but teach a man to fish and you feed him forever. The same principle applies here because it gives the people who are down on their luck and dealt a bad hand from the start the chance to earn an honest living, provide for their family and earn their salt. This is the perfect opportunity for them to prove their stand and show their mettle so to speak instead of relying on charity, sheer dumb luck and the goodness of strangers just to survive in this dog-eat-dog world.
Aside from giving small business owners the boost and helping hand that they need to stand on their own feet, establish their roots and grow exponentially through the years, SIIRD also dole out research funding to proponents who have been found worthy because of their advocacies, intellectual thrusts and inherent desire to help their fellowmen. This opens up a lot of doors and windows of opportunity for the philanthropists and geniuses of our time to put their plans, ideas, and theories into action that will considerably change the quality of living and way of life of many people around the world.
These grants for research and development also open up many job opportunities for unemployed but skilled workers and give them the chance to showcase their skills and prove themselves as valuable members of society because they can pull their own weight. In conclusion, the advocacies, mission, and vision of SIIRD should inspire average joes and ordinary citizens to lay down their arms and forget about their petty arguments and differences so that we can all focus on working together to make the world a better place for the sake of the future generations to come.
