Dr. Paula Fellingham is remarkable for many reasons. Not only has she earned a Doctorate of Education Degree, she did it while she raised eight children and 24 grandchildren. She has also been a talk show host. She is the founder of the Women’s Information Network and of the nonprofit Equity Serve Foundation. She is the author of six books. She seems unstoppable!

Never daunted by a challenge, she’s tackled what could be described as the world’s biggest: peace and prosperity.

Paula says, “Although hundreds of millions in nations worldwide lack love, prosperity, and peace in their lives, there has never been a better time in history to implement a Global Prosperity and Peace Initiative whose mission is ‘to increase the love, prosperity and peace on Earth.’”

So Paula is making it happen. “We have created a Master Action Plan (a MAP) to fulfill our mission. We have developed systems and processes. We have valuable content that can strengthen hearts, homes, and all of humanity. Additionally, we have Regional Directors, Peace Ambassadors, National Peace Ambassadors and hundreds of volunteers who are ready to implement our Global Prosperity and Peace Initiative in 196 nations, beginning in January, 2017.”

No different than so many entrepreneurs, Paula needs funding to launch her initiative. “Our biggest challenge is funding. We have funded the Global Initiative to this point, and now we are ready for financial help. We are seeking one million dollars (I have a breakdown of exactly how it will be spent). Our Global Initiative will be self-sustaining and so the initial capital will be repaid and our partners will enjoy a WIN WIN with us.”

The lack of funding limits how quickly she can have impact, she says. “We have content; we have volunteers worldwide (a plethora of people!); we have some media contacts. However, with funding we can deliver our content via apps, radio, television, etc. in every nation. The technology is there. We simply need to tap into the resources that will help us achieve exponential success.”

Paula starts her work with a desire to measure progress and impact. She says, “We believe we can lift the level of love, prosperity, and peace in the world. We have measurements in place and every year on Peace Day (September 21st) in 196 nations our National Peace Ambassadors will host a Peace Summit. Also, at that time the progress in each nation will be measured, analyzed, and the data will be publicized and recorded. The increased (or decreased) levels of prosperity and peace (which can and will be measured) in each nation will determine the level of support they receive the following year.”
