Warschild Foundation

We all have a responsibility to improve the welfare of humanity, to make a positive impact and protect the environment for future generations. Every little bit counts, every little bit matters. Major transformational change often starts with small, seemingly insignificant acts that later prove to be monumental.

The Warschild Foundation is an organization founded to foster sustainable progress in the social, economic and environmental spheres through public-private partnerships and by preserving and promoting civil society involvement.

The Foundation’s objective centers on a simple idea: Fostering sustainable progress through effective multi-stakeholder engagement to alleviate the world's most pressing development challenges. This requires a long term focus and a strong drive to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

Benevolent Hostility

Life’s all about doing what’s right rather than what’s popular because whenever you’re focused on living up to other people’s standards, you aren’t focusing on raising your own.

Benevolent Hostility builds a culture of high standards and is much more than an investment strategy. To me, it’s a competitive advantage and a chance to work collaboratively in a team atmosphere to strengthen accountability and aid economic growth while advancing the principles of good governance, diversity, and competitiveness.

The objective is to foster constructive dialogue among the many constituencies with strong interests in corporate governance, shareholder value, and stakeholder engagement.

“What differentiates my approach from others is that, from day one, my mission has been to do what’s right rather than what’s popular or politically correct; which, in the long run, is always more important than being the toast of the golf course.”
