The term ‘Third World’ was coined by French demographer and historian Alfred Sauvy in an article published in ther French magazine L’Ohsen-aieur in August 1952. I was used to refer to emerging or developing nations around the world and in it’s original form it referred to creativity, innovation and an alternative way of thinking. It alluded to the notion of development and growth. This word ‘Third World’ meant a way of thinking that supersedes the way governments of the world would think. Initially, it was never meant to be used in reference to supposed ignorance, poverty, lack or disease: but rather it alluded to a people who were solution focused and could solve problems due to an ‘out of the box’ way of thinking.
The 4Change Foundation was started with this intent; A moving of the people of our nation beyond merely looking or a ‘hand out’ to instead becoming creative and industrious at all levels of society, hence returning to the original connotation of the term ‘Third World’.
