"The visionary starts with a clean sheet of paper, and re-imagines the world." --Malcolm Gladwell

A School and a Future for Blind Children

Sabriye Tenberken and Paul Kronenberg are co-founders of a school for blind teenagers in Tibet. Tenberken, who was born in Germany and has been blind since the age of 12, attended the University of Bonn and studied, among other things, the cultures of Central Asia. From there, she traveled around China, Nepal - where she met Kronenberg - and Tibet, where they started their school, Braille Without Borders. In this talk with Knowledge@Wharton, Tenberken and Kronenberg discuss the meaning of social entrepreneurship and what it takes to train and inspire true visionaries all across the world.
